What to Eat During Restaurant Week

Try these delicious deals at some of your favorite local dining spots.

If you’ve always wanted to try that tony steakhouse or that intriguing little bistro down the street, now’s your chance to do so (affordably, no less) during the week of Jan. 22-28. With set prices of $22 for brunch or lunch and $35 for dinner, these deals are a steal, so make your reservations now. Also, be sure to check the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington website for updates. Some menus from well-loved places such as J. Gilbert’s, Kapnos Taverna and The Liberty Tavern weren’t quite ready at the time of this post.

If you’ve never tried Balkan food – or didn’t know you wanted to – here’s your chance. At lunch, Ambar offers three “Chef’s Platters” and a dessert. Platters include veal soup, stuffed sour cabbage, fried catfish, grilled trout, pork neck and chicken. For dinner, you can feast on unlimited small plates, which include meat pies, vegetables, seafood, and wild boar or Balkan beef patties.
