Five Bites On Friday

The Saucy Apron, a mom to three kids under 4 and another on the way, sends in today's bites with a few date nights and kid-friendly spots. She also offers some food tips for parents here.

1. Squid ink pasta with soft shell crab on date night at The Tabard Inn (pictured above)

2. Beef tongue tacos for a cheap date night at Taqueria Distrito Federal

3. Fried oyster sandwiches, best eaten with a cold beer from trunk of your car while the kids are bewitched by live crabs, at the Maine Avenue Fish Market

4. Pizza and banana shakes at Palisades Pizzeria — sit by the fish tank for free kid entertainment.

5. Kiwi burger with a fried egg at Cassatt's — Great New Zealand wines, and the kiwis love kids.

Five Bites is a place for Metrocurean readers — and now DC's top chefs — to share all the delicious things they've been eating and drinking. E-mail five of your favorites and whether you'd like your name and a picture included to metrocurean AT gmail DOT com.

Stay tuned at noon for Five Bites from pastry chef Travis Olson of 1789.
