Friday Night Dinner: China Chilcano
Get a taste of D.C.'s growing Peruvian restaurant scene at this restaurant, one of José Andrés' more recent openings here. The focus here is Chifa cuisine, which combines influences from Peru and China.
Saturday Night Drinks: 2 Birds 1 Stone
One of Logan Circle's more grown-up destinations for drinks is this semi-hidden cocktail haunt. And they're shaking things up this season with a frozen drinks happy hour, featuring a different special each day. Get there between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday to try Adam Bernbach's take on a pina colada.
Get there first: Post-movie ramen at Jinya Ramen Bar
It's opening week for Jinya Ramen Bar at Mosaic District, so hours are somewhat limited (no more lunch until Monday). But suburban diners can still sample what the ramen joint has to offer in the evenings. Take in a movie at the Angelika in the 7-8 p.m. range and cap off the night with a bowl of soup here (and maybe a cocktail or beer).
Sunday Brunch: Mokomandy
Poutine for brunch? You better believe it at this underrated Sterling gem, which has both Korean and Cajun influences in its food.
Sunday Afternoon Snack: The Royal
Happy one year anniversary to this Ledroit Park neighborhood haunt. Their no-rules approach means the whole men's available all-day. So just make some time in the agenda for arepas at some point Sunday.
