Arlington’s Inaugural Restaurant Week Runs Oct. 21-28
More than two dozen local kitchens will offer special menus and discounts. Here's the dish on what to eat.
Owner Javier Candon says SER’s three-course Restaurant Week menu (lunch $25; dinner $35) brings “a really representative sampling of some of our most favorite dishes from Spain.” Guests will find Huevos rotos con chorizo y patatas—a mix of egg, chorizo, potatoes and bell peppers—on the appetizer list, and a twist on the Spanish staple flan (a chocolate version with whipped cream and crushed pistachios). // 1110 N. Glebe Road, Arlington (Ballston)
Now celebrating 22 years in business, Sushi-Zen aims to be “Arlington’s favorite neighborhood gathering place,” says co-owner Rosie Gordon. During Restaurant Week, diners can enjoy a three-course meal ($29.95) that starts with miso soup and a garden salad, followed by an appetizer (choice of shrimp, vegetable tempura, seaweed salad or edamame). Finish off the meal with a chef special roll and signature roll. // 2457 N. Harrison St., Arlington (Lee Highway)
Built on the site of a former hardware store in Clarendon, Wilson Hardware sorts its American fare into aptly named menu sections: “Nuts and Bolts,” “Hand Tools” and “Power Tools.” Dishes on its three-course Restaurant Week menu ($34) include apps such as crispy calamari and roasted Brussels sprouts; and mains such as salmon, steak frites or stuffed chicken. On the dessert front, orange sorbet, chocolate hazelnut cake and Italian ice cream cake (Tartufo) keep things sweet. // 2915 Wilson Blvd., Arlington (Clarendon)
