PERK ALERT

The Best Chocolate from Paris

There’s chocolate. And then there’s chocolate—made by a guy who’s won seven Blue Ribbons (France’s highest award for professional chocolatiers), which is what we’re getting you. Then we’re hooking you up with eye-catching pop-art prints—including the opportunity to create your own Warhol. Plus: your very own wardrobe butler.
UD - A Month of Grilled Cheese at Saint-Ex

IT’S NOT EASY...

A Month of Grilled Cheese at Saint-Ex

This just in: April is National Grilled Cheese Month (in case you ever doubted the power of the grilled cheese industry). Anyway, Saint-Ex is answering the call with five limited-edition sandwiches, piling on stuff like eggs, apples and breakfast sausage. Actually, better take the rest of the month off.

Available through April, Café Saint-Ex, 1847 14th St NW, 202-265-7839

UD - A One-Off Brunch at Sonoma

DUCK, DUCK, EGG

A One-Off Brunch at Sonoma

You’ll need to fuel up before your date with Jim Nantz and the azaleas in the afternoon. May we suggest Sonoma’s limited-engagement Easter brunch. They’re doing duck hash with duck confit and deep-fried egg, short ribs and eggs, and housemade donuts. Your red polo: optional.

You hold these truths to be self-evident: that you’d like to tuck into seven courses honoring Thomas Jefferson’s 269th birthday and inspired by his travels around Europe. Each course will be paired with a French red, a madeira or another of Tom’s favorite wines. Which Adams would have hated.
411:
Apr 10-14, $269, Plume at The Jefferson, 1200 16th St NW, reserve at 202-448-2300, see the menu
