Coast to Coast – Ristorante iRicchi
While in Italy, Christianne Ricchi fell in love with what she admiringly calls the “art” of Italian dining. She learned the ropes of the restaurant business by cooking traditional recipes at a small Tuscan trattoria, dreaming of the day when she would bring authentic Italian cooking to America. In 1989, her dream became a reality by opening Ristorante i Ricchi in Washington, D.C., a welcoming yet elegant homage to classic Tuscan cooking. After over 20 years, and numerous honors and awards, Christianne credits solid partnerships with her ability to provide a quality product, and quality experiences, for her guests, year after year.
