On my trip to the Nat Gal in DC to see the exhibit VENICE: CANALETTO AND HIS RIVALS, Robert, Keith and I had lunch in the Baccus Court of the West Building.
Linking the East and West Buildings is the Concourse that's very dramatic. Its curved ceiling is slats of stainless steel, lighted with 41,000 LEDs that give a undulating, shimmering pattern of light—Leo Villareal's Multiverse.

It was sublime. The menu was quite complicated and totally Italian.
Keith and I chose the Buffet while Robert ordered Prosciutto San Daniele.

It was delightful sitting in the atrium with the water fountain, flowering plants and the varied people with Italian waiters running around.
They're going to have the Italian specialties thru March 2012.
