LOGAN CIRCLE—Now that chef Rob Weland is officially installed over at Cork, he's officially unveiled a brand new menu. New dishes include a radish salad, almond-parsnip gratin, red wine braised rabbit and braised pork belly served with grits and a slow-cooked hen egg. [EaterWire]

PENN QUARTER—Meanwhile, the restaurant Weland left behind has also done some more menu adjusting. Poste also announces today that chef Dennis Marron has launched some menu specials including a three-course pre-theater menu, a $20 power lunch menu and, best of all, a lunchtime beer-and-burgers special. This latter deal offers anyone who buys a burger or a sandwich a complimentary beer, glass of wine or soft drink. Or, if you prefer, a bag of cookies! [EaterWire]

VIDEO INTERLUDE—Last week Toki Underground hosted two pop-up dinners in celebration of Chinese New Year and Brightest Young Things was there to get some behind-the-scenes footage and interview the chefs involved — Toki's Erik Bruner-Yang and Thang Le and The Source's Scott Drewno. [BYT]

SOUTHWEST WATERFRONT—The Going Out Gurus bring the good news that Cantina Marina is briefly open this evening for outdoor margarita happy hour action — until 8 p.m. Yes, it is that warm outside. [WaPo]

THE SHUTTER—Clarendon Nights reports that the Eleventh Street Lounge has closed over the weekend and is to be replaced by an office building. There is some possibility that it could relocate, although many of its belongings have now been sold at auction. [Clarendon Nights via ARLnow]

BEER WIRE—The Washington Post reports that local breweries DC Brau, Capitol City Brewing Company and Port City Brewing Company have all been selected to pour two beers apiece at Savor, which is coming up on June 8 and 9. They're among 75 breweries selected out of the 160 who applied so congrats to them. A few other farther-flung breweries made the list as well. [WaPo]
