The Restaurant: Frankly . . . Pizza!

Frank Linn’s chewy, lightly charred crusts are so good we could eat them on their own. But they’re even better sprinkled with a trio of cheeses—nutty Gruyère, mozzarella, Romano—and accents that balance salty and sweet: Linn’s own cured bacon, pickled jalapeños, and caramelized onions. 10417 Armory Ave., Kensington; 301-832-1065.

The Dish: Lobster French Toast

The Restaurant: Kinship

We’re never opposed to breakfast for dinner, especially if it’s this slice of house-made brioche piled with butter-poached lobster, Asian pear, and sesame mousse, then finished with a caramely-rich reduction of lobster stock and butter. “There are two schools of people when it comes to French toast—butter-and-syrup and whipped-cream-and-fruit,” Kinship chef/owner Eric Ziebold says. “This is the best of both worlds.” 1015 Seventh St., NW; 202-737-7700.

The Dish: Lobster Gratin

The Restaurant: Plume

The seafood gratin is a throwback dish that’s happily coming back into favor. Prime example: lobster meat bound by decadent vanilla-scented lobster bisque, gilded under the broiler, and accented with lobster roe, lobster chips, and diced root vegetables. 1200 16th St., NW; 202-448-2300.
