Menu highlights include a raw bar, tapas, paella and dorade baked in a salt crust. 791 Wharf Street, SW; 202-525-1402. delmardc.com

Foggy Bottom Debut
Restaurateur Ashok Bajaj (Rasika) recently unveiled a larger version of Bindaas, his Cleveland Park hot spot, in DC’s Foggy Bottom. Like its little sister, the outpost focuses on Indian street fare with a menu by chef Vikram Sunderam including savory chaat, kebabs, curries, and wraps. With custom murals, graffiti and pendants resembling baskets, interiors by Projects Design Associates evoke the outdoor markets and alleyways of India. 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW; 202-516-4326. bindaasdc.com
