Things to do for June 20, 2013
Your Weekend Menu: Waffles, Pizza and $2 Beers
The weekend is now solar powered.
For its second anniversary, Acre 121 has kept things refreshingly simple for you. All their beers—bottles, cans and drafts—are two bucks, all night, tonight and tomorrow. So it’s not just refreshingly simple, it’s also just plain refreshing.
&pizza Lands on U Street
Happens all the time: 2am rolls around, and you start to crave a Farmer’s Daughter. Right, the eggs, sausage and mozzarella pie from H Street’s assembly-line pizzeria. Well, now they’ve added another operation on U Street, and they’re staying open until 3:30am on weekends. Almost time to milk the cows.
Adour Is Dead. Long Live Decanter.
What you might recognize at the St. Regis’s reworked restaurant: the half-moon windows, the original ceiling from 1926 and the walls of wine. What you might not: the Mediterranean menu with lamb shank flatbreads, calamari burgers and braised rockfish for two. Go ahead and feed each other.
B Too Launches a Waffle-Centric Brunch
You might expect a Belgian place that specializes in waffles to serve a mean brunch. Well, now it does. With eight waffles, like a cornbread waffle with pulled pork. If that gets tiring, there’s always a lobster-and-egg skillet. That old standby.
Brunch Goes Japanese at Daikaya Izakaya
On Sunday, your brunch gets a bit more Eastern at Daikaya’s new brunch—mimosas with sparkling sake, grilled oyster shooters with sake and menu items like salmon sashimi with nori cream cheese on a sesame bagel. Next up: miso matzo ball soup.
