Farm-Fresh Fridays at Cafe Atlantico

By Julia Beizer

The Thursday night Penn Quarter FreshFarm Market has been known to attract chefs from neighboring restaurants for years now, but this summer, you can count on seeing Cafe Atlantico's low-key chef Terri Cutrino and her cooks milling about and picking up produce. Last week, the restaurant kicked off a new Friday night special: Each week from now until late fall, Chef Cutrino will create a menu that's made up of ingredients from that week's market. Diners can choose between this $45 three-course prix-fixe or ordering from the a la carte menu. I strolled around the market with Cutrino last week and chatted with her about the new series and about how we regular folks should pick our market produce.

Use our interactive farmers market map to get your fresh produce fix this season.
