The cherry blossoms have mostly fluttered away, but the festival is going strong through April 27-- and that includes dining options.

Whether you're looking for cherry blossom-inspired cocktails (go here for those) or menus, local bars and restos have you covered.

Read on for our dining picks:

Asia Nine (915 E St. NW) is offering a three-course prix-fixe menu for $39 (which includes a Cherry Bellini or Iced Cherry Cider), along with two specialty cocktails. First course options include a crispy shrimp roll with house wasabi-mayonnaise and sweet cherry marmalade. Main courses include grilled pork chops with sweet cherry chutney and chicken tempura cherry fried rice. For dessert, choose from black forest lava cake with sweet cherry preserves or the fresh housemade cherry sorbet

Bastille (1201 N. Royal St., Alexandria) is dishing up cherry options a la carte, including pan-roasted Moullard Duck breast with Port and cherry gastrique sauce ($28) and Morello cherry mousse with Amaretto cherries ($9).

And at Paul Bakery (801 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) through April 29, you can scoop up everything from cherry twisted bread ($1.50), cherry cramique brioche ($5.45) and cherry Napoleons ($5.45). Those are also available in portions of four, six, nine and a dozen, which is convenient if you're trying to make everyone in your office totally love you.
