With a kitchen helmed by former Queen Vic chef Adam Stein, Cause Bar pledges to donate all profits — after paying employees and covering operating costs, of course — to non-profits. The menu offers several flatbreads and burgers, including options that are vegetarian-friendly and gluten-free. The aim is to open in April. [PLYWOOD]

2) McLean: The Washingtonian learns of a new restaurant headed to fill the French dining gap in McLean. Bistro Vivant will open in the next few weeks with a menu that will feature different French regional specialties month by month from chef Christopher Carey, who has previously worked at the Wine Kitchen and Ashby Inn. [PLYWOOD]

3) Ballston: ARLnow reports that Red Parrot Asian Bistro plans to open on Glebe Road this year, having already applied for a liquor license. The restaurant has locations in Baltimore and Hanover, Maryland, where the menu reveals a sushi bar, noodles, curry dishes, teriyaki and more. An employee tells ARLnow that the restaurant is probably about six months out. [PLYWOOD]
