The June Hit List: Cranes, Red Hen, Ellē, Taqueria Al Lado, and More

By

Just in time for patio season proper — you know, without the propane heaters and vinyl igloos — Mayor Bowser has greenlighted dining and bars at full capacity. The staffing crunch is all too real, though, so remain patient and show your gratitude for the privilege of being served. (Because, TBH, your air-fryer chicken tenders at home are just not that great.)

This month, we’re smitten with the Spanish-Japanese haut-Lunchables that is Cranes’ bento box; lengua tacos and racilla shots at Taqueria Al Lado remain our Saturday late-night protocol; and we’ll likely consume a cringe amount of Frank’s burrata at the Red Hen. All this and much more, on your June Hit List.
