Graffiato Begins Lunch Service; Pinkberry Opening Updates

CHINATOWN—If you haven't been able to get into Graffiato for dinner yet, your odds are getting a little better when the highly buzzed-about restaurant debuts its lunch service tomorrow. They're not taking reservations, but you'll be able to get pizza on the restaurant's ground level Monday through Friday from 12 to 5. [EaterWire]

NORTHERN VIRGINIAPinkberry is sweeping into the region fast this summer. A Craigslist employee-seeking ad states (and a rep confirms) that the Clarendon location will open on July 29. Meanwhile, the Leesburg shop has a tentative opening date of August 12. All this on the heels of the Hollywood chain's May opening in Dupont Circle. [Craigslist, EaterWire]

DUPONT CIRCLE—Speaking of Dupont Circle, Rogue States officially reopened as Black and Orange on Connecticut Avenue over the long weekend. They're still open until the wee hours of the morning, but presumably have taken care of the noxious fumes that had it shuttered in the first place. [EaterWire]

CHARITYWIRE—Fans of the Tune Inn, mark your calendars for July 15, when the American Legion Post 8 hosts a fundraiser for the employees who found themselves out of a job when the iconic bar suffered a kitchen fire in late June. From 3 to 10 p.m., they'll be raffling off prizes, including memorabilia from the bar. [DCist]

RELOCATION REPORT—Reston's Melting Pot outpost has officially reopened in its new, roomier digs on Plaza America Drive for all your cheese-dipping pleasure. [EaterWire]
