Tuesday night deals?

katecm Oct 1, 2007 01:13 PM

My anniversary this year will fall on a Tuesday night. Since we're trying to watch our spending a bit, I'd love to find a restaurant that has some sort of deal - like half priced wine or some such. Does anyone know about any good Tuesday specials? Thanks!

    Where area(s) are you looking in? Are you considering pre theater dining options?

      I'd love something like a pre-theater option, but neither of us get out of work until at least 6 or 6:30, and we do like to get a drink before dinner, too. So the time doesn't work out.

      We'd definitely prefer to be downtown, Metro Center/Penn Quarter, but will happily travel for something appealing.

        Dino has a 3 course dinner for $24 Sun-Thurs if ordered by 7:30. Also free corkage on Tuesdays!

          Hmm, that was last year's anniversary dinner, but that's totally the sort of thing I'd love to find.

            This has been replaced by our Restaurant Week offer: 3 courses for $35.09 with your choice of the entire menu (selected items have an upcharge). It is available every Monday and Tuesday all evening long.

                Also Oya usually has a 3 course special going, $30 for dinner. The menu changes a little bit but its a good deal and the food was surprisingly good the last time I went. I remember the spicy crunchy shrimp roll was delicious and there was a fish dish with hen of the woods which had a lot of flavor.

          I have never been, so I can't really comment on the quality. But Petits Plats in Woodley Park does an early bird (5;30-7) and late (9:00 to closing) special for $24.95. http://petitsplats.com/dinner_menu.html

            I know that Adams Morgan has something called "first Tuesdays," where most local restaurants participate in a $25 pre-fixe meal on the first Tuesday of every month.

              Taberna del Alberdero has 1/2 off tapas Monday-Friday. Sangria is also 1/2 off. The deal is until 7pm but totally worth getting there early for. The tapas are the best in town (and usually the most expensive). A fun way to celebrate your anniversary. See if they'll give you a small table in the back (they do this sometimes and it will be more private then the crowded bar. Perhaps play up the fact that its your anniversary).
