Dazzling dishes may include an oyster medley or pork belly with sautéed asparagus and a potato ring. $150 per person through May 22. sensoriumdc.com

GOOD LIBATIONS

Bartender Brennan Adams has introduced fruit-laced cocktails at DC’s Masa 14 just in time for warmer weather. Choices include lychee lemonade, which pairs lychee purée and a splash of Bacardi Razz, and a cherry-margarita or a cherry-tequila smash, both containing tequila that’s been infused overnight with dried cherries. 1825 14th Street, NW; 202-328-1414. masa14.com

CAPITAL INFUSION

Manelle Martino, whose great-great-grandfather was a tea grower, is keeping the tradition alive with Capital Teas, a shop offering 120 loose teas from around the world plus teapots and accessories. After opening her first location in Annapolis in 2007, she is now expanding her empire with new outposts in National Harbor, Bethesda’s Wildwood Shopping Center and Georgetown, with Dupont Circle coming soon. capitalteas.com

SET SAIL FOR SUMMER

Designed by Bruce King in 1995, the Hinckley Sou’wester 70 is still turning heads in harbors around the globe. Its minimal, six-foot, six-inch draft enables the graceful 70-foot yacht to anchor almost anywhere. Below deck, Hinckley configures the cabins, salon, galley and dining areas according to captain’s orders. hinckleyyachts.com
