CLEVELAND PARK—Perhaps you're already covered for your Christmas Eve and New Years Eve dinners, but what about in between? From December 26-30, Dino is offering a special dinner featuring the traditonal Italian Bollito Misto, featuring meats, potatoes and a variety of meats cooked in a mixed broth. The family-style dinner will run you $45 per person ($20 for children). There will also be a wine flight available. [EaterWire]

THE SHUTTER—Dining Bisnow reports that Maoz has closed its doors in Dupont Circle after two years in business. Owner Quinn Wallis explains, "People loved our food. But unfortunately, at the end of the day, we just weren't able to get enough people through the door." [DBN]

FAIRFAX—This week, the Washington Business Journal looks into a new concept from the folks behind Glory Days Grill. The new restaurant will be named Fanfare and will be located out in Fairfax Corner, perhaps by the end of this month. They've got some photos of the space, which includes stadium seats culled from 20 different ballparks. [WBJ]
