DUPONT CIRCLE—Rhubarb season is upon us, and Iron Gate chef Tony Chittum plans to have the seasonal ingredient star in several dishes. For brunch, there’s sheep's milk yogurt with Sicilian pistachios, honey, and poached rhubarb, while dinner has a new spiced lamb sausage, foraged greens, vinegar, and rhubarb mostarda entree. For dessert: chocolate trifle, rhubarb two ways, hazelnut, and spiced strawberry sorbet.

RESTON—Red’s Table has a new lineup of seasonal cocktails, like the Twisted Whiskey (bourbon, Cointreau, honey simple syrup, lemon juice, orange juice, angostura bitters and orange bitters), and the Rhubarb Dill Dickel, for $10 each.

H STREET—In addition to the recently added sake flights, Toki Underground is now introducing Japanese whiskey flights to the menu. The flights, available at lunch and dinner, showcase two 12-year single malts from Suntory, and a Japanese bourbon from Nikka. Each flight is $25 and includes one-ounce pours of all three whiskies.

WEST END—Tredici Enoteca in The St. Gregory Hotel is donating $1 from each sale of its specialty Oasis cocktail to Autism Speaks through the month of April. The $12 cocktail contains Tito’s vodka, freshly squeezed lemonade, fresh blackberries and fresh blueberries, garnished with lemon wheels.

14th STREET CORRIDOR—Sakerum just launched a Social Cigar Night on Mondays at its 50-seat enclosed rooftop, from 7:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. BYOC for an $8 cutting fee, or buy one from Sakerum's collection ($12 to $20). Simultaneously sip on a curated selection of spirits, including Japanese whiskey, rum, and Scotch.
