Restaurant Week-August 2011

It's that time of year again boys and girls----Restaurant Week time.

The dates were just announced: August 15-22. The full list of restaurants can be found here: https://www.restaurantweekmetrodc.org/

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of additions of new restaurants on there, which is a little disappointing. But still a nice list.

I'm personally thinking about doing lunch at 701 and maybe Johnny's Half Shell, Nage, Acadiana, or Bombay Club. Anyone have thoughts on any of these?

We can use this thread to give recommendations, say where we have reservations, give reviews etc.

      The Prime Rib is great! The first time I went there was for Restaurant Week. It is an incredibly good deal for RW. Of course get the Prime Rib as a main course and the key lime pie for dessert.

      Delicious, old school Washington restaurant.

    2. Birch and Barley is already booked. I was trying to figure out where you get a good bang for your buck - I figured there...and maybe Bibiana. It's hard to pick until the menus come out for me.

        I've gone to Bibiana for RW before and they do it really well.

          I ended up with somewhat early evening reservations at Birch and Barley. Bibiana is a place I'll definitely go regardless of RW.

            nixed the reservation due to having tickets to the Nats-Phillies game. Oh well!

      2. First choice was Rasika, which is booked. So I made dinner reservations for Ardeo + Bardeo.

        1. I'm addicted to the lobster mac 'n cheese at Nage. V rich.

          Tried Acadiana during restaurant week a couple of years ago, and was disappointed by the portion size and selection. But that was a while back--maybe it's changed.

            Just made a reservation for Nage for lunch with a girlfriend. Looking forward to finally checking it out. It's one of those places I consider all the time and then chose some place else.

          2. I ate at Adour and Oval Room during the winter Restaurant Week and I highly recommend them both. This year I am heading to Rasika, Tosca, and Watershed.
