As you transition out of this weekend's Labor Day festivities and back into your weekday routine, visit O'Lima for a weekday happy hour. The eatery's handmade yuca purée croquettes are enough to get you through the toughest workday.

Brazilian Independence Day is Wednesday, and Steak Brasil wants diners to indulge in a meat-centric meal to celebrate. Find time to visit Dolce Italian this week too, because the restaurant recently launched a $29 wine special during lunch, as well as a slew of new cocktail concoctions.
