The Weekend Guide

the dutch restaurant new york!

Nothing like a little midnight snack.

DROP IN
The Dutch
What:
The much-hyped, late-night-centric venture from the folks behind Locanda Verde is chef Andrew Carmellini’s ode to New York style and grub.
Why: Smoked Salvatore ricotta ravioli, rabbit pot pie, dry-aged steaks, and the satisfaction that comes with scoring the hottest seat in town.
When: Daily, 5:30 p.m.-2 a.m.
Where: 131 Sullivan St., at Prince St. (212-677-6200).

CHEER
Mucca Pazza
What:
The 30-member circus-punk marching band mashes up TV theme songs, Balkan brass, car alarm melodies, and original jams. (Hear a sampling.)
Why: Keep your eye on the whistle- and sousaphone-strapped band leader. Or the speaker helmets. Or the cheerleaders.
When: Tonight, 7 p.m.
Where: Santos Party House, 96 Lafayette St., b/t Walker & White Sts. Tickets ($12) online at ticketweb.com.

DIVIDE (and CONQUER)
Pick Your Part Lamb Dinner
What:
Not for the timid, Nate Smith’s (formerly of The Spotted Pig) nose-to-tail tribute means everything from ragu (picked from the grass-fed animal’s neck) over pasta to tender roasted lamb shoulder.
Why: A four-course meal with a $30 price tag? Count us in.
When: Tonight, 5 p.m.-midnight (or until lamb is finished). First come, first served.
Where: Pinkerton Wine Bar, 263 N. 6th St., at Havemeyer St., Williamsburg (718-782-7171).

SUIT UP
Thom Dolan

What: Sweet, flattering New York-made cotton bikinis ($156) that remind us of vintage Slim Aarons photos, only updated.
Why: Enough with the bedazzled spandex; you’ll do much better in soft red Indonesian batik or fuchsia-lined white eyelet.
When: You work up enough confidence.
Where: Steven Alan, 103 Franklin St., b/t Church St. & W. Broadway (212-343-0692); online at stevenalan.com.

WANDER
Spring Craft Market

What:
Wares from more than 60 indie artisans, live music, and undiscovered vittles in a town square setting.
Why: Queens Metal jewelry, Painter Girl chocolates, Fine Day Press stationery, and elusive Ghost Pepper.
When: Sat. & Sun., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
Where: The Brooklyn Lyceum, 227 Fourth Ave., at President St., Gowanus (718-857-4816). Admission is free.

DISCOVER
Txikifest Launches
What:
Pair Txakoli wines from the Basque region with gourmet grub from the folks behind Co., Edi & the Wolf, Taïm, El Quinto Pino, and La Newyorkina.
Why: Street food never tastes this good. Plus proceeds benefit FACES (Finding a Cure for Epilepsy and Seizures).
When: Sun., 1-5 p.m.
Where: Back alley of Txikito, 240 Ninth Ave., b/t 24th & 25th Sts. (212-242-4730). Tickets ($45) online at brownpapertickets.com.
