CHINATOWN—On Saturday, Graffiato launches a brunch menu that includes things like, oh, cinnamon knots with nutella, breakfast pizza, and an apple calzone. There will be cocktails too, of course, including a Bloody Mary with olive oil and mozzarella. Brunch will be available Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 3 p.m. Beyond brunch, Graffiato will also begin offering a $20 weekday lunch menu in which you can choose three items from the wood oven, vegetate, dessert or beverage sections of the regular menu.

PENN QUARTER—In other new menu news, Elisir has unveiled a new bar menu featuring snack-types of things like a martini of burrata and parma prosciutto, braised pork ribs, tempura artichoke hearts and porchetta tonnato. Prices range from $12-16. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL—Looks like things are going swimmingly over at Acqua al 2, as Prince of Petworth discovers the Italian restaurant has applied for an expansion to the second floor of the property. If approved, they'll have more seats and later hours — until 2 a.m. weekdays and 3 a.m. on weekends. [PoP]

ROGUE SESSIONS—Philly person and former Top Chef person Jen Carroll is coming to DC next week to take over Rogue 24 as part of the ongoing Rogue Sessions. Tickets went up on Gilt City yesterday and, as usual, it will be 24 courses with the option of drink pairings. Eater Philly reported earlier this month that Carroll is working on a new restaurant of her own named Concrete Blonde, so maybe this will be a bit of a preview? [Gilt City]
