Val Kilmer Dines at Rasika; 1789's Summer Menu

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

PENN QUARTER— Batman loves Indian food. Actor Val Kilmer dined at Rasika this week with several guests, including Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. According to a rep from the restaurant, the party ordered palak chat, tawa baingan, chicken tikka masala, zafrani murg and lamb chops. That's all. [EaterWire]

GEORGETOWN— It's almost summer and that means 1789 becomes a bit more affordable. The restaurant continues its annual summer special, which means four courses for $50. Each person receives two appetizers, an entree and a dessert. There's an optional $20 wine pairing as well. New dishes include morels with fried duck egg, diver scallops with lobster grits and peach hand pies. The menu is available weekdays from 6-10 p.m. and Fridays from 6-11 p.m. from June 3 through Sept. 13. [EaterWire]

BROOKLAND, BLOOMINGDALE Fritz Hahn has an update on two new projects, courtesy of some liquor license filings. The first is Brookland's Finest, a coffee shop and bar from the Solly's team, and 13th Street Meats' storefront at 247 Florida Ave. NW. The latter will mostly be a retail meat shop, but there will also be a 12-seat counter where customers can buy items like sausage sandwiches and chili, or grab a beer. [WaPo]
