Truxton Inn’s JFK on Vacay reimagines the daiquiri with a grassier, funkier body, thanks to rhum agricole, and a richer sweetness from pineapple liqueur and passion fruit. A dehydrated lime garnish adds visual and olfactory interest. Settle into a leather chair and enjoy.

12 D.C. restaurants serving up cauliflower in unique ways

"Yes, it’s a chain concept but I think we can all agree that fast casual is on fire right now. Roti is keeping things interesting with new additions to the menu- the cauliflower quinoa tabbouleh is offered as a topping, and is bright and fresh and good enough that it’s tempting to use this as the base instead!"

This new restaurant is serving up an unlikely combination: Nordic and Southern cuisine

"Johnson is already pegging his buttered veal sweetbreads, served with bearnaise custard, sweet onions, black truffle and a veal reduction, as a likely contender for his signature dish, along with the rib-eye that's adorned with Maryland crab cooked in cream and butter and also topped with black truffle."

Indulgences: Food

"Honeysuckle, a new hot spot, has opened in the space occupied by the now-shuttered Vidalia. At the helm is Hamilton Johnson, Vidalia’s former executive chef—a  South Carolina native who elevates “low country” ingredients into sublime creations such as lamb tartare with pickled porcini (left) and seared sea scallops with squash fondue (right). Ron Saleh designed the interiors, which feature a bar (above) with a communal table crafted of reclaimed South Carolina oak and a mural by DC artist Rick Bach that pays homage to Johnson’s many tattoos."

20 Must-Try Summer Eats & Drinks in DC

"Yes, there’s a six-step ordering process that starts with choosing the size of your bowl and ends with a trip to the crunchy sprinkles station by the soda machine for items like furikake and tempura crunch — but this is Washington, DC, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Fast-casual Hawaiian poke is right up our alley, and the folks guiding you through the line are also extremely helpful when it comes to choosing the best toppings for your cool cubes of marinated tuna and rice."

Gourmet chicken at fast-casual prices

"After dining several times at Farmbird — the fast-casual on H Street NE that Koslow launched in June with another college bud and catering partner, Andrew Harris — I feel as if Washingtonians owe a huge debt of gratitude to Matt Isabel.

Keeping the Peace in Coach

“Still the idea seemed a good one to Julie Melnick of California, who said she was unable to get help with her bags while boarding a plane with her baby several years ago. “I asked a gate agent to help me, and he said, ‘Ma’am, that’s your personal belongings.’ ” The experience led Ms. Melnick, a public relations consultant, to create Nanny in the Clouds, an online market that connects traveling parents with people on the same flight who might be interested in making some money baby-sitting for a child at 36,000 feet.”
