Friday Night Dinner: Lapis
Lapis, usually overshadowed by some buzzier neighbors like Mintwood Place, got a good review in The Washington Post this week, and count Eater as a fan as well. It serves surprisingly sophisticated Afghan dishes in a pleasant setting. Try the mantoo beef dumplings, lamb qorma, or vegetable dishes like baked eggplant, sauteed pumplin, or 16 bean risotto. Pro tip: make a reservation (several times currently look available) in case the positive press brings in the crowds. — Meredith Bethune
Saturday Night Romantic Dinner: 2941
Last weekend was a terrible weekend to go somewhere fancy, due to Valentine's Day crowds and overpriced menus. Spend this weekend splurging instead. Give 2941's romantic setting and French-influenced menu a try; as of press time, there were several tables for two available Saturday evening.

Sunday Breakfast for Dinner: Pearl Dive
Pearl Dive is running its breakfast for dinner special through Sunday night, so cap off the week by trying it. Pontchartrain combines two poached eggs, an English muffin, blue crab, tasso ham, crawfish and cayenne-spiked hollandaise. It's priced $18; if it doesn't sound appealing, there's always the restaurant's famous fried chicken or oysters.
