If you’re a Capitol Hill staffer, chances are Sonoma is probably one of your go-to places (this does not apply to unpaid interns!).

The Pennsylvania Ave. restaurant & wine bar boasts, “We use the Mid-Atlantic’s best naturally-raised and local ingredients to make great Italian food & pair the creations with the best American and Italian wines.” As big fan of their pastas (double portion, please), I can tell you that everything tastes fresh and delightful.

Not only does the restaurant have a blog, it’s also starting to tweet like crazy. So far, it has a small 240 followers and actually follows more than 400, but I expect that to change soon. The account just has so much personality, and who on Capitol Hill doesn’t love that?


LOVE IT. So the restaurant is hiring a host and server, and by the looks of this tweet you still have a chance to apply if you’re interested. Just email Oh, and be sure to actually put your experience in your resume!

Good luck, and if you aren’t applying, maybe just head to Sonoma this weekend for some wine.

Sonoma is located at 223 Pennsylvania Ave, SE. The closest metro stop is Capitol South (Blue/Orange Lines). For more information, call 202-544-8088.
