Looking for a decent restaurant that isn't taking part in restaurant week
I'm headed to town next week for a conference, and didn't realize that Restaurant Week is going on, so reservations aren't as easy to come by as I'd expected.
Group of 4, like interesting food. Last year we went to Black Salt and Founding Farmers. Loved Black Salt (did the tasting menu) and thought Founding Farmers was good even though we had to wait way past our reservation.
Any suggestions based on the above? We'll be there on Wednesday night, ideally around 7:30.
Brasserie Beck for great moules and frites
Estadio for outstanding tapas
Pearl Dive for great seafood, especially oysters (doesn't take reservations)
Brasserie Beck is a good idea. You might also like Cashion's Eat Place, Hank's Oyster Bar or Estadio...none of which are taking part in Restaurant Week.
Thanks for all the guidance so far. A few more data points: we're staying at the Omni Shoreham; this is a work dinner, so we'll want to talk but have some drinks as well; and at least one of the people is not an adventurous eater.
I've currently got a reservation at Proof as a backup; thoughts?
