Need dining inspiration this weekend? Here are some favorites from Eater editors: new restaurants, old favorites, and restaurants that pair well with fun weekend activities

It's no secret that Shaw is currently a scene. But if they go early (late night paints a different story), drinkers can experience a more relaxed experience at this bar, which opened before the neighborhood got insane. Go right after work and sample a cocktail from the limited menu, or pick from a variety of local beers.

As Eater learned this week, Chicago-style deep-dish pizza can be tough to find in D.C. This pop-up at the Capitol Lounge is trying to do thing right, serving up both thin crust and deep dish varieties. Find them on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Saturday tacos for lunch: Taqueria Habanero

Tacos brighten any weekend, so check out this well-regarded taqueria for a Saturday lunch. Eater's been in a fish taco mood lately, and Habanero has some good ones, but there are plenty of other varieties to choose from as well.

Get there first: Saturday Night at Ashlar

Go see what Kimpton's been up to over at the revamped Morrison House property in Old Town. The colonial-inspired cocktails at this new tavern sound particularly intriguing.
