Hungry? It's a Foodie's Paradise Out There!

Every year, the Washington, DC Convention and Tourism Corporation and the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington bring our city the Winter Restaurant Week. This year, it is this week, January 8 – 14th. I have learned that 170 restaurants are participating, so talk about choices during this 10th annual event!

A bit about the week:
Participating Washington restaurants from every cuisine background offer a 3 course gourmet prix-fixe meal during lunch and dinner. The lunch menu is $20.07 (get it? 2007) and dinner menus are only $10 more for $30.07. (The prices do not include tax, beverage or gratuity.) Reservations are highly recommended and when you get to the restaurant, don’t just assume you will get any 3 course meal for that excellent price. The establishment should have a pre-printed menu specifically for this week’s special offering. If they don’t present to you right away, do make sure you ask for it!

Here are some links to learn more about it:

Do your best to come into the District (there are some restaurants in NoVa also participating) to taste some of the country’s best chefs in their beautifully designed restaurants, try a new place you have been reading about, or even that little place you’ve always been wondering about. It will be worth it – and at those prices, you can’t lose!
I welcome your comments on where you went, your reviews and suggestions.

Chef Geoff's opened on New Mexico about three days before I moved to DC and into a spot on Cathedral Ave. I've been a fan ever since. Now that Goeff and Norah are expecting (twins, no less!) head on over to Chef Geoffs during restaurant week -- he'll need the income! :)

Thanks for the great suggestion - Twins - I may have to try it out twice!

I went yesterday--it's a good RW menu (and how can you top root beer floats and homemade cookies for dessert???)

Pamela DC said...

Oh, I have such a weakness for homemade cookies! good to know ...

Here is my report:

Post - terrible service and I didn't think that food was that great. I've been there for a couple events upstairs - I don't get it.

DC Coast - food was ok - but it's DC Coast so it's ok

Charlie Palmer's - ok

Cafe Mozu - tomorrow night

Love Chef Geoffs at New Mexico not the site downtown

sorry meant Posh not Post

Interesting feedback about Posh, since they boast themselves as a true "supper club", and they focus more on marketing dining then the "club/bar/lounge". Try Nage - 1600 Rhode Island ave. I have NEVER had a bad meal, amazing food, presentation, and great RW menu. The service is always very good. Ask for Galen or Josh, tell them I suggested you try out!

You are correct about Nage. Great food and great service! Plus, they have the best PR person in the city.
