Twice the discounts in Petworth

Fledgling Mexican establishment Taqueria del Barrio is making a play for Petworth’s happy hour and late-night business, rolling out food and drink specials good Tuesday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., and again from 9 p.m. till closing. Discounted offerings include house margaritas and seasonal punches ($5), “gringo” tacos filled with beef ($5), select wines ($6), mole-topped nachos ($7), and $1 off draft beers.

Bastille accentuates the spoils of the garden

Need a break from meat? Alexandria’s Bastille is taking vegetarian awareness efforts to heart, ramping up its greens- and grains-based offerings. Featured items include red quinoa tabbouleh, house-made falafel, spring pea risotto, and a vegetable tagine.

Brunch it up on H Street

Bottomless mimosas and bloody Mary’s will be in the mix at DC Harvest every Friday beginning May 26. That’s when the farm-to-table outfit plans to begin serving weekend brunch offerings — the current roster includes bacon-Asiago “doughnuts,” organic egg scrambles, and banana-spelt buttermilk pancakes — a day earlier.

Succotash Penn Quarter coming this August

Two years after setting up shop in National Harbor, restaurateur Edward Lee is gearing up to go even bigger in Penn Quarter with his second Succotash. The forthcoming Southern restaurant (915 F Street NW), which is now scheduled to open this August, is expected to accommodate 350 guests across three floors, and is promising a bar stocked with 200 whiskeys and “a sizeable wine program.”
