Floriana is an elegant restaurant located in a brownstone near Dupont Circle. The quality of the service and food rise up to the level set by the surroundings. I started with this sweet onion soup. It included the traditional bread underneath but avoided the heavy cheese cap. The onions were filled with umami. The broth soaked into the bread providing a satisfyingly soft texture and taste. My salmon was very fresh and perfectly cooked. Underneath was a bed of diced potatoes, possibly Yukon Gold, that provided just the right carbohydrate cushion.
