The Week Will Prevail

By Erin

If you were planning to eat healthy in the new year, formulate a new plan. Mere days after the start of 2006, while leftovers still tempt us from the fridge, the Washington, D.C. Convention and Tourism Corporation and the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington bring us another Restaurant Week. This year it's bigger than ever, with more than 140 restaurants offering lunch specials for $20.06 and dinner for $30.06 from Jan. 9-15. If you've been meaning to check out the new Rasika or Clyde's of Gallery Place or have always wanted to try Vidalia or 1789, this is the perfect opportunity.

I made the rounds of Restaurant Week in August. Highlights included Corduroy, which offered its full menu, Ceiba and Zola. Reservations tend to book up quickly, so make them as soon as you can. And don't fret: you can start getting healthy in February.

Some suggestions based on experiences from previous Restaurant Weeks and so far during the current Restaurant Week ...

Try:
DC Coast
Ceiba
TenPenh
Cafe Atlantico
Corduroy
Vidalia (though overpriced - had to pay extra for shrimp & grits, a humble dish)

Skip:
Galileo (bad service, lukewarm food, rushed)
Cafe Mozu (mediocre service, tasty food but left hungry)

I highly recommend Acadiana, even without the RW pricing. It's well worth it as a treat in the new year. You get well-sized portions, a nice atmosphere and fantastic service. The wine list is comprehensive, and the specialty cocktails alone are worth the visit. (Try the Sazerac.)

Had a wonderful dinner at Chef Goeff's on New Mexico. My entre was the Pork Shank and was delicious. This had always been one of my favorite dinner places and during RW you can have any starter, main (except steak) and dessert for $30.06.
