Top Five Wednesday: Extended Restaurant Week (DC)

[ 0 ] January 20, 2010 |

Restaurant Week is over and now it’s back to the regular menu prices. Blah. It’s almost the same feeling we get when the Neiman’s Last Call sale is over, we think…did we get enough? did we get everything we wanted?? Time period too short which sets us back few bills (*Translation: money) because we’re trying to eat out every night for that one week. Alas! There are restaurants in the District who feel our pain and are kindly extending their deals throughout the month of January. It’s like they understand we are already bitter from the cold so why not give us a break?? Today’s “Top Five” comes from five restaurants who have extended their restaurant week deals and these are five we are actually excited about, check it:

Cafe Atlantico– We love the Latin flair attached to the menu items here. Think ceviche with a good face lift. With a restaurant week menu that’s extended to January 24, there’s plenty of time to try the tuna ceviche.

1789– Would you believe we still have not been here?? It makes the list because our mouths are still salivating about the stories we have heard about the food. Lucky for us we have until the 31st (*January 31, 2010) to join the club and taste for ourselves.

Zaytinya– If you haven’t been here, you should go. It is the one place that we can say carries very high reviews across the board. Knock on wood, but we haven’t heard anything to alter our views of Zaytinya and we love, love, love their yogurt sauce…we even tried to replicate. Zaytinya, please post a recipe for the yogurt sauce:-) (*Extended until January 24, 2010)

Art & Soul– Another one that has given us another shot at the goal. We want to try the Maryland Crab Bisque, the Banana Bread Pudding, the Catfish, the Fried Chicken, the Butternut Squash soup, basically everything…Deals end January 24, 2010.

Againn– So far, so good. We had a pleasant experience last time we visited Againn. No need to rush out to this one for restaurant week, the prices are generally reasonable so you can visit anytime. Also, the last time we visited we remember the food being a little on the heavier side so you really don’t need 3 courses at once. Deals end January 24, 2010.
