New 14th Street spot Drafting Table has a soft-opening approach that should make diners happy: Between now and October 17, owner Aaron Gordon is offering a 25 percent discount on food. [Eater DC]

Loving Roberto Donna’s food at Al Dente as much as Esquire writer John Mariani? A former employee says you should help pay off his debts. [WP]

Per a liquor license that Prince of Petworth read, a new European cafe called Bari Bari is coming to 1401 R Street. [PoP]

PoP also spied a sign at the Mayflower Renaissance—where Edgar Bar and Kitchen is due to open in December. The namesake is, of course, J. Edgar Hoover, who took his daily lunch at the storied hotel. [PoP]

Radius Pizza—now helmed by Matt and Lenka Culbertson—is set to reopen next week. [WCP]
