Whether it's the Longworth Cafeteria or BLT Steak, the power lunch continues during recess just as it does when Congress is in session. But for those for whom an in-session day requires more time in the office, recess periods can be better time for the power lunch of the white tablecloth variety.  

But what happens when recess falls during Passover, eight days in which all bread products must be eschewed? We found one D.C. restaurant that may have a solution for this gap in the marketplace. This year, Fiola unveiled a five course Passover seder menu. The five-course menu is available for dinner Tuesday through Saturday, at lunch by request and a la carte.
