A number of restaurants on Capitol Hill, in Navy Yard and elsewhere in Ward 6 are set to participate in the food fest. The event coordinated by Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington will run from Jan. 19 through 25, with multi-course lunches for $20.15 and dinners for $35.15.
On Barracks Row, the dinner menu at Zest (735 8th St. SE) will include beer-braised beef short ribs, seared scallops and bread pudding with cranberries and walnuts. Closer to the Capitol, Béarnaise (315 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) is planning steak frites, moules frites and profiteroles.
Here are some of the other restaurants slated to participate:
Agua 301 (301 Water St. SE)
Ambar (523 8th St. SE)
Arsenal at Bluejacket (300 Tingey St. SE)
Belga Cafe (514 8th St. SE)
Lavagna (539 8th St. SE)
Ocopa (1324 H St. NW)
Osteria Morini (301 Water St. SE)
Sonoma (223 Pennsylvania Ave. SE)
Todd Gray’s Watershed (1225 1st St. NE)
But diner beware, Restaurant Week isn’t necessarily a good deal. Washington City Paper found this time last year that prix fixe meals at some restaurants actually cost more than ordering a la carte.
