Earlier this summer, DC welcomed some new options for eating and drinking with an international flair. El Cucho in Columbia Heights and Crios near DuPont Circle modernize Mexican fare. Izakaya-seki, near U Street NW, and Yo Sushi on Capitol Hill, channel traditional and modern Japan, respectively. The Brixton on U Street NW, and Mayfair and Pine in Glover Park, strike Anglo-American chords, while Hank’s Oyster Bar on Capitol Hill dishes up New England seafood and Gina Chersevani’s globally inspired cocktails. Now, as August draws to close, there is a flurry of more new spots opening before Labor Day. Check out the slide show for all the details.
