Crane and Turtle's last night of dinner service may be April 23, but diners will have the chance to experience a week of special events following the shutter of the Japanese-French restaurant in Petworth.

The restaurant plans to host Passion Project Pop-Up Week, with events scheduled for April 26-May 1. Among them: special dinners, sake nights and wine celebrations. The restaurant's team (minus its original chefs, who are relocating) eventually plans to open a new concept in the space at 828 Upshur St. NW.

Here's the full lineup of events:

* Tuesday, April 26 and Friday, April 29: A Mona Moon seasonal dinner menu from sous chef Kyle Rubin
*Wednesday, April 27: "Natural Wine Night" featuring rare Italian wines imported to D.C. for the first time with Guillaume Bouscavel and Angelina Dirina
*Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1: Bar Otsukare will host "Sake akachōchin," an evening inspired by Japan and New York's casual sake bars (5 p.m. to midnight)
