1) 14th Street: After many delays, Lupo Verde opens tonight for dinner at 5 p.m.. This project comes from owners Med Lahlou and Antonio Matarazzo of Station 4, and is focused on bringing authentic Italian fare and plenty of take-out options to the neighborhood. Chefs Orlando Amaro and Domenico Apollaro have put together a menu with small plates, pastas, pizzas and traditional dishes. There's also a separate cheese counter, and a local bent to the ingredients. The space stretches over two stories, with multiple bars. Status: Opening tonight. 1401 T St. NW; website.

2) Georgetown: Speaking of Italian fare, Fiola Mare opened as expected Friday evening. This is the new seafood focused branch of Fabio Trabocchi's growing restaurant empire. The restaurant's menus are all now online. Status: Certified open. 3050 K St. NW; website.

3) Northeast: District Fishwife is largely a retail operation, but the market will offer a limited selection of prepared items. A fish and chips special debuted over the weekend such as fish and chips (one Eater reader is an early fan). The dish goes for $11.50. Status: Certified open. 1309 5th St. NE (at Union Market); website.
