5 Best Bets for Restaurant Week
Hear that sound? It’s people clicking like crazy on OpenTable because Restaurant Week is back. From Jan. 19-25 diners can try a three-course lunch ($20.15) or three-course dinner ($35.15) at participating restaurants in DC, Maryland and Virginia. We’ve hand-picked five top choices based on value:
2941 Restaurant—Three courses means you’ll receive plates from both talented exec chef Bertrand Chemel and 2014 RAMMY award-winning pastry chef Caitlin Dysart. Use the money you save on wine—the list impresses. Offering lunch & dinner.
Nonna’s Kitchen—Perched atop Alphonse on U Street is a tasting menu-only Italian escape. For Restaurant Week, they’ve paired down a lengthy menu to three courses (with choices) that serve as the perfect sneak preview of what to expect during the $90 real deal. Offering dinner only.
Sushi Taro (pictured)—Any chance to get a discount on lunch or dinner at DC’s sushi authority is a win. Expect to try a variety of styles of Japanese cuisine and simple, elegant dessert. Offering lunch & dinner.
Poste—The new chef at this centrally located bistro has tipped the menu toward fine dining (which means fine dining prices). This makes Restaurant Week the perfect time to take Kyoo Eom’s food for a spin. Offering lunch & dinner.
Del Campo—If you’re going to squeak a deal out of a steakhouse, do it at Del Campo. Chef Victor Albisu will likely make sure everything hitting your plate was smoked first. Offering lunch & dinner.
