This week's top dish from Eater DC, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
DUPONT CIRCLE—This week has been all about the fallout from last weekend's shooting/stabbing at Heritage India. The restaurant has remained closed throughout the week and has now had its liquor license suspended.
ROSSLYN—There's some good news and some bad news coming out of the Ray's restaurant empire in Rosslyn. First the good: Ray's Hell Burger Too is back! Now the bad: This means that Steak and Cheese has closed after just a month in operation. But you can still find the sandwich itself at Ray's to the Third across the street.
GEORGETOWN—Several months after the summer fire that forced it to close, Tackle Box has reopened its doors in Georgetown.
PENN QUARTER—Former Teatro Goldoni chef Enzo Fargione officially made his return to a DC kitchen this week with the opening of Elisir. The fine dining Italian restaurant offers two tasting menus and some limited a la carte options. They've also got monitors set up in the dining room so that guests can watch the chef's every move in the show kitchen.
BARBECUE WIRE—These are exciting times for barbecue in Northern Virginia. This week saw the opening of Pork Barrel BBQ in Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood — after many delays. Eater also got a look inside Crystal City's forthcoming Memphis Barbeque, which should open on Monday.
DEL RAY—In this week's Dining Confidential, Eater talked to Port City Brewing Company's Bill Butcher about his favorite under-the-radar spot in Del Ray. Turns out he's a big fan of the LA-style fish tacos at Taqueria Poblano.
