About This Show
Whatever else can be said for the 2016 election, the highest glass ceiling was not broken and the number of women in the U.S. Congress stalled at a mere one-fifth of its members. Every month POLITICO Editor Carrie Budoff Brown will sit down with women leaders to talk power, politics and policy, and explore how dynamics shift when women have a seat at the table. Women Rule is produced by POLITICO in partnership with Google and the Tory Burch Foundation.

Maria Trabocchi has built a Washington restaurant brand on hospitality and Italian fine dining — and for years, Sfoglina, Fiola, Fiola Mare and Casa Luca (and, most recently, Del Mar) have played host to D.C.’s A-list. The Obamas have feasted there, along with foreign heads of state, Hollywood stars like Meryl Streep, and the occasional Supreme Court justice.
But what's the secret to charming the VIPs of the nation’s capital? POLITICO's Anna Palmer sits down with Trabocchi to discuss the details of entertaining Washington's power brokers, how she got her start in the food industry, and what's next for her restaurant empire.
