Chef Geoff Tracy goes Italian—sort of—at Lia’s, which manages to feel like a cozy neighborhood spot despite its location on the ground floor of a Chevy Chase office building. There’s a fun-to-share salumi-and-cheese board, a delicious lunchtime Caesar salad topped with crunchy calamari, pizzas and pastas, and juicy burgers discounted to $5 on Mondays and Wednesdays.
