The 14th Street strip will have yet another dining option when Sette Osteria opens on Tuesday, April 14. Owner Iraklis Krabassis is also behind the space’s former concept, M Cafe Bar; the venue temporarily closed for a remodel, and transitioned into a sibling of Sette Osteria in Dupont Circle.

Chef Nicola Sanna’s Italian menu is similar to the original Sette’s, with a lineup of antipasti, pastas, meat and fish entrees, and thin-crust pizzas.* The dishes cover the classics, such crispy calamari and beef carpaccio, veal piccata and spaghetti with clams. The bar will serve six draft beers, as well as an extensive list of wines by the glass and Italian-inspired cocktails. There’s also a small kid’s section, with mini pizzas and chicken tenders.

The 72-seat dining room and 45-seat patio debut with a discount on Tuesday: all diners will receive 50 percent off their bill starting at 7. Going forward guests will find daily happy hour from 5 to 8, with discounts running all night on Sundays and Mondays.

Sette Osteria. 1634 14th St., NW. Open daily for lunch and dinner, 11:30 to 4 and 5 to 11. Brunch: Saturdays and Sundays, 11 to 4.
