>>>OpenSkies (*the all business class airline) has launched its new menu created by Chef Michel Richard (*Citronelle, Central…). A nice touch if we do say so ourselves: we had an opportunity to taste the menu options and duck breast with port cinnamon sauce is our idea of a way to jetset from D.C. to Paris…The menu is available during a two-month promo for the launch of the new routes from D.C. and is also available on westbound flights from Paris to Newark International.

>>>Zola is making it healthy for the kiddies. The Penn Quarter restaurant has joined Destination DC in Restaurant Week for Kids which takes place from June 20-27, 2010. The menu is priced based on the child’s age (*9 year-old child=$9 meal) with the offer applying to children 11 and under and will be available from 11:30 am-3 pm for lunch and 5 pm-6:30 pm for dinner. Ha, upgrades on some old childhood favorites: alphabet soup with chicken clear broth, vegetables and pasta letters and four cheese ravioli with sautéed mushrooms, basil and local tomato sauce. We love it. It’s about time restaurants ditch the typical fries and small pizzas for children…

>>>Fresh fruit and veggies in Ballston. The District is full of farmers markets and lucky for us Virginia is right around the corner with even more fresh produce. Ballston Farmers Market is open every Thursday from 3 pm- 7 pm until October. Vendor products range from herbs to pastries to honey, check out more info here.
