RW lunch recommendations for chef geoff's?

I'm going there today (first time) and they seem to have an incredibly extensive RW menu. I'd love some recommendations!

  1. My recommendation would be to try to book something else nearby - I've never had 3 courses at CG worth $20, even at dinner. Unfortunately, I've found it to be family chain restaurant quality food, at Downtown DC prices.

    1. I went on Monday and thought it was ok.
      Appetizers: Their asparagus risotto balls would've been great except they were still cold in the middle. My bf's duck spring rolls were overly greasy (even for him) although they did have a substantial amount of duck. I'm sorry this isn't helpful at all... the lady next to us got the buffalo mozzarella app and seemed to enjoy them thoroughly.

      I got a steak salad as an entree and couldn't chew through the steak, but the bf got a burger and said it was amazing.

      1. re: Reene902

        I'd also recommend going somewhere else. If you want the burger, go for happy hour when it's $5. You don't go to RW to get burgers. Close by, go to TenPenh or Ceiba and sit at the bar if you can't get a table. Tosca is also close by, but may also be hard to get a table at. I think a RW meal at CG is an RW meal wasted.

      2. I agree with the others...don't go. I just made a post about 2 days ago (I don't have time to locate and link to it, sorry!) as I went last Friday night (not for RW), and it was generally awful. Spend your hard earned $$ elsewhere!

        1. so i didn't go. instead i went to bombay club which was DELICIOUS. i don't think it receives much press on this site or general praise but i wanted to say that it was incredibly enjoyable. my companion ordered a different entree and dessert and was equally impressed (i had the bbq chicken dish she had the lamb, i had rice pudding she had mango sorbet). we both had the kabob appetizer. YUM. highly recommended.
