Five Restaurants to Try This Weekend

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

Get There First: Friday drinks at Pinea's Bocce Bar

Bars with outdoor games are all the rage right now, and Pinea's bocce bar is the newest in town (at least until Radiator opens next week). Reserve a bocce court and make that a way to unwind after the work week tonight.

Nostalgic late-night Friday dinner: Bistro Francais

The news is out there: Longtime Georgetown late-night haunt Bistro Francais is closing in May. Anyone with memories there can get one more meal in on Friday before the shutter.

Hawthorne has two things going for it when it comes to early drinks on Saturday — their rooftop happy hour runs daily, and their roof is enclosed so bad weather doesn't dampen the fun (literally).

Saturday late-night slice: Wiseguy

The smart move when getting late-night pizza in D.C. isn't Jumbo Slice: it's this transporting New York-style pizzeria. Choose from Manhattan-inspired favorites like meatball, Sicilian and buffalo chicken. And don't forget the garlic knots.

Sunday festiveness: Tequila flights at Fuego

It's no secret there will be crowds galore hitting up the area's Mexican restaurants come Thursday for Cinco de Mayo. Get a more relaxing tequila-drinking experience by heading to Fuego for one of their tequila flights. An order of queso wouldn't hurt, either.
