Deals: Restaurant Week Returns

The restaurants: Nearly 200 area restaurants are participating in the summer Restaurant Week, which runs from Aug. 16-22.

The deal: You guys know the drill — three-course lunches run $20.10 and three-course dinners, $35.10. Be on the lookout for extensions and restaurants offering their full menus.

The deets: Start dialing now for tables at the hottest spots, which are sure to book up fast. To get the biggest bang for your buck, choose higher end restaurants like Adour, 1789, J&G Steakhouse or The Oval Room, where you'd be hard pressed to stay under $30 on a regular night.

Looking to try someplace new? New York Italian export Carmine's and its nearly 700 seats will be have just opened at 425 Seventh St. NW. Also newish: Ris, Lyon Hall and Trummer's on Main in Clifton, Va.

A few more Metrocurean picks: Bibiana, Birch & Barley, Kaz Sushi Bistro, PS 7's, Rasika and Westend Bistro.

Um, oops. Sorry about that. You get the editing award for today. Thank you for keeping me on my toes. Coffee ... kicking ... in ... NOW!

I don't recommend Adour... the menu for restaurant week is very limited and definitely not their best food.

I made reservations for 1789 and Zentan. Any thoughts to which might be a better option if I only want to do one dinner?

Amanda said...

Ladies Who Brunch: I might say Zentan, only because you could try 1789 thru Sept. 15 for the same price by signing up for their mailing list. Details here.

FrenchTwistDC: I wonder if they'll take the limited menu criticism and try to improve?

I made a reservation at Poste, per Todd Kliman's rec. Any thoughts?

Amanda said...

Alex - I like Poste a lot. Lots of local and sustainable menu choices. Be sure to have a drink in the courtyard if the weather's nice.

Thanks for the info on 1789! I think the food and service there is generally really good, but DC RW isn't always a restaurant's best showing, so nice to find out I can go another time and get a great deal with the coupon.

You're welcome, maggie! Let me know if you try it.
