The Restaurant Week List
Ask and you shall receive. In yesterday's Got Plans?, we were inundated with requests for where to eat during Restaurant Week. The list of Restaurant Week participants has been posted. So start scrambling to make your reservations. Here are some of my suggestions and thoughts.
Spezie has gotten a boost lately from Cesare Lanfranconi, formerly of Tosca.
Sure, The Palm isn't new, but the look is. This is a rare opportunity to spend just $20 on the pleasure of an authentic D.C. power lunch.
I was unimpressed by my first (and only) meal at Il Mulino. It's heavy food that leaves your wallet feeling very light. If you can't resist the temptation to try it, Restaurant Week would be the time to do it. Usually, $30 won't even get you in the door.
Some of my favorites:
I love Rasika and would use any excuse to go. Dinner for $30? I'm there.
The same goes for D'Acqua, which has wowed me recently with perfect flavors and ultra-fresh fish. Seafood that good can get expensive, so go for the deal.
Vidalia's RJ Cooper didn't win a James Beard Award for nothing. The Southern food is fabulous and the full menu is offered. Stop in early to take advantage of happy hour wine specials and you'll have a bargain-filled night.
701 is another favorite with an extensive promotion menu.
Can't dine during the promotion week? Check out these extensions:
Charlie Palmer Steak offers its $20 lunch special year-round.
Dino offers its full menu at Restaurant Week prices from Jan. 2nd through 31st.
Butterfield 9 extends the deal from Jan. 7 through 26th.
Cafe Atlantico, Zaytinya, Oyamel and all three locations of Jaleo will serve up specials through the 27th.
As I reported a few weeks ago, 1789 extends the special, offered only at dinner, through Jan. 27, while Corduroy offers deals at lunch and dinner through Jan. 26.
Where are you booking tables?
