Where to Get the Best Lasagna in DC

Lasagna from Nostra Cocina

Next in the series of Barred in DC food guides is where to get best lasagna in DC. Again, most of these guides are generated  from an open Twitter threads-they are based on what my Twitter followers believe is the best in the District of Columbia rather than my personal experience, as I’ve not had all them (my expertise would be useless as I’m not a food critic). See original lasagna thread and a bonus poll.
