Still Life with Robin: DC Restaurant Week - The Final Days

 by Peggy Robin

It's Washington Restaurant Week! Well, the tail end of it....

I know I'm late to the party, but there are still two more days! You've got all of today and Sunday to show your love for some of our great local eateries, with special meal-deals as your incentive!

Maybe (unlike me), you've been dining out all week. In that case, carry on as you've been doing from the start, which was Monday, August 30.

If you'd like to get up to speed on what's available, where, when, for what price, and how to reserve, start here:

Participating restaurants are charging $25 for their brunch/lunch menu, and there are two levels of dinner menu choices, the $40 menu and the $55 menu.
There are 150+ participating restaurants, so I'll just list the ones for Cleveland Park, Woodley Park and Tenleytown.

Bindaas - Cleveland Park
$40 Menu

Sababa - Cleveland Park
$40 Menu

Duke's Counter - Cleveland Park/Woodley Park
$40 Menu

New Heights - Woodley Park
$55 Menu

Flavorture - Woodley Park
$55 Menu

Le Chat Noir - Tenleytown
$40 Menu

Which one to choose? I've been to them all and like them all, so you really can't go wrong. If you want an in-depth look at each, you can take a look at reviews by Washington Post's Tom Sietsema. But whatever you do, avoid Yelp, where half of all the reviews are written by friends of the restaurant owner and the other half by angry diners who are holding grudges over a perceived slight or some minor slip by the waitstaff! (Don't get me started on what's wrong with Yelp; that's a whole 'nother column...or a book in itself).

Still Life with Robin is posted on the Cleveland Park Listserv and on All Life Is Local on Saturdays.
