901 Massachusetts Ave., NW

Restaurateur Mike Isabella’s sleek Spanish eatery is at the top of our list of new spots to check out for Restaurant Week—and you can pick between three meals. Promising dishes include hot-smoked bone marrow with oxtail jam as well as fried chicken bocadillos (sandwiches) with curry aioli and spicy cucumber. Lunch, brunch, dinner.


2901 Wilson Blvd., Arlington

The sister eatery below Arlington’s Ambar dishes up Balkan and modern European fare. Cocktail fans, take note: the $35 dinner option includes three small plates and, instead of dessert, your choice of an adult beverage (an upgrade, in our opinion). Brunch also comes with a courtesy brunch drink, coffee, and baklava. Brunch and dinner.


1942 Ninth St., NW

This “Little Ethiopia” mainstay has a new chef (Christopher Roberson), polished vibe, and fresh menu of modern-Ethiopian and global dishes. We’ve sampled a few dishes that make an appearance on the Restaurant Week menu—berbere chicken-stuffed injera tacos, a peppery short rib, and vegetarian platter—all with tasty results. Dinner only.
