It’s time to break out the tuxedo or that little black dress and dust off the feathery mask we know you have tucked away in your dresser. Fiola is getting in the spirit of Venice’s Carnevale by hosting a black tie masquerade party on Tuesday, February 21.

A four-course tasting menu will include calamari and cod baccala, rich risotto dotted with branzino and clams, duck with artichokes in a spice-laden peverada sauce, and a duo of fried dough – zeppole and bomboloni – served with nutella. Live music and other entertainment will be unveiled over the course of the evening. The dinner is $85 per person, a price that includes a wine pairing.

Don’t pretend like you can’t wait to put on your bird-of-paradise mask, because we know you’re dying to play dress up and hit the town.

Fiola is located at 601 Pennsylvania Ave., NW (entrance on Indiana Ave. NW); 202-628-2888,
