Bryan Voltaggio wants you to relax and really enjoy some good food. The celebrity chef and restaurateur officially opens Range today—December 18—in Friendship Heights’ Chevy Chase Pavilion—offering a tasty selection of large and small plates, including Chesapeake oysters, locally raised lamb, kimchi linguini with bay scallops, wood roasted carrots and turnips, and freshly baked breads. (Don’t miss the skillet cornbread, served with a delicious bacon marmalade.)

In fact, Voltaggio’s expansive new outpost features seven mini kitchens and seats 297 diners. “You’ll be able to sit down and have all of these different experiences, which will appear on one menu,” says the Frederick, Maryland native. The size evokes a grander atmosphere when compared to Volt, the chef’s flagship location in his quaint hometown to the north, but diners will still feel like they are in a Voltaggio-helmed venue. “I wanted to build something that was really fun, with approachable food,” he explains, noting that the culinary offerings are also seasonally driven.

The menu features responsibly sourced ingredients in the dishes—think delicacies made from the whole animal and not just center-cut steak, though that’s also available to order if you prefer. Adds Voltaggio: “As a chef, when I sit down in a restaurant I want to try everything.” Visit Range and you will, too. Reservations currently available online only at voltrange.com. 5355 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Ste. 201
