Restaurant Week near Corcoran

I know the typical recommendation near the Corcoran for a meal (lunch in my case) is Breadline or Tonic, however the hubby and I want to do lunch then see the Ansel Adams exhibit this week (tomorrow or Thursday). Are there any Restaurant WEek recommendations in a reasonable walk around the Corcoran?

  1. What about Butterfield 9, Bombay Club or The Oval Room? None of those are too far of a walk. Equinox is not participating are they?

      No Equinox is shut down for the month for renovations.

      If you can get a reservation I highly recommend Butterfield 9 for RW lunch.

      Also, I believe the Fourth Estate (the restaurant in the Press Club) isn't too far away and I know they still have lunch reservations available. I'm going on Thursday for lunch, not sure if it's any good though since is this my first time trying it. The menu looked nice though.

        Central is a very short cab ride away.

          Central is participating in RW? I didn't think it was?

            No. Central is not participating in RW.

                Cafe du Parc, the new restaurant in the Willard is very nice -- classic French. You can get a lunch entree for about $18-$20, which includes a very rich side, like cauliflower gratin. The chocolate mouse is the real deal.
