Musselduck's is going casual. The upstairs eatery on the corner of Grace and Harrison streets opened for lunch in early April. The new lunch menu includes pedestrian items such as the hamburger and cheeseburger, and more exciting options like the Eggplant Creole and a vegetarian frittata. Open for lunch 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. 411 N. Harrison St.

Fans of the French-Vietnamese spread at Carytown's Indochine will be glad to hear that its sister restaurant, in Shockoe Slip, is now open for dinner Monday through Saturday. Try this new dinner spot for the always excellent seafood choices like the Chilean sea bass with blue-claw crabmeat, as well as delicious new items like the roast duck. 1209 E. Cary St. 225-1331.

Members of Bio Ritmo get together under the name Havana Son, performing at the The "Big One" one-year anniversary party Saturday night at 1223 Belle B. Sidle up to the circular bar and treat yourself to hors d'oeuvres and drinks during this chance to get a look at the new spring menu of Mediterranean cuisine created by recently added chef Riccardo Milone. 7 p.m. 1223 Bellevue Ave. 261-4500.

Other restaurants unveiling new spring menus include Cabo's, with its emphasis on organic cooking and its innovative sauces and sides, and Avalon, with new fare for light appetites, including interesting salads like the raspberry chicken.

Avalon Restaurant & Raw Bar, 2619 W. Main St.; Cabo's Corner Bistro, 2053 W. Broad
