Charlie Palmer Steak pours bottomless wine
101 Constitution Ave., NW
DC’s top steakhouses will never be cheap, but Charlie Palmer now offers a deal with the new “cut of the week” menu, featuring an appetizer, rotating steak like Wagyu hangar, sides, dessert, and bottomless wine for $58 (a strip steak alone goes for $49, for comparison sake). The fine print: unlimited vino is paired with the first and main course, and the lineup is available for dinner-only.
Alta Strada begins happy hour
475 K St., NW
Restaurateur Michael Schlow’s new Italian restaurant introduces weekday happy hour from 3 to 7, with a generous menu of discount antipasti and pizza, wine, beer, and classic Italian cocktails. We’d go for crispy meatballs ($8), tuna tartare ($10), and a classic Negroni ($8).
New brunch pizzas at Pizzeria Orso
400 S Maple Ave., Falls Church
Chef Bertrand Chemel introduces new springtime pies to the brunch menu, both sweet—Nutella, banana, strawberries—and savory, such as asparagus, ramps, ricotta pesto, and a poached egg. The new additions run $10 to $14.
Lamb half-smokes at Cava Mezze
DC and Clarendon locations only
Spring has arrived at two of Cava Mezze’s locations, where you’ll find barbecue-inspired dishes such as a Logan Sausage lamb half-smoke crowned with bolognese, mustard, tzatziki, and feta (the dish was a recent Lamb Jam winner). Look for other warm weather eats/drinks, like feta hush puppies, a cantaloupe-spiked sparkling cocktail, and watermelon salad.
