Admittedly, menus and details on the area's first Restaurant Week have been somewhat spotty (i.e., what can you order; do you need reservations; is this limited to certain days in the Sept. 4-8 window), but an e-mail sent by Daveed's sheds a bit more light on their program:

I called Daveed's today and made reservations for the special during restaurant week. The latest time they would make a reservation for the special was 6:30. My husband and I are going on Wednesday September 5th. We have never dined at Daveeds before because of the cost but are really looking forward to trying it out! I am so excited about this event! Thursday night we are planning on checking out another restaurant we have never been to before and that is Pigall's. I will report back afterwards and let everyone know how it was!

They will not accept reservations and the special is limited to the lounge and patio, with the lounge being unavailable 9/5 due to a previously scheduled commitment.

My husband and I made our reservations at Pigall's on the 7th. The only seating is at 6pm and it's in a separate dining room than usual. Not sure about the menu yet!

Erin, below is the Pigall's menu that was emailed to me. Some other info from them indicated the RW special is good only for the Loft at communal tables with reservations. I had originally made a rez for 6:15 on Wed., which they changed for availability reasons to 7:30 when they realized I specifically wanted the RW menu. My recommendation to anyone trying to make reservations at any of the participating restaurants is that you make sure they know if you are specifically looking for the RW promotion.

1st course: spring mixed lettuces tossed with sunflower seeds, sundried cherries, red onion & parmesean cheese in a raspberry vinaigrette.

2nd course:
vegetarian-
chipotle bbq organic tofu, grilled & served with a corn, red pepper & cilantro saute & roasted redskin potatoes.

or

non vegetarian-
grilled pork napolean layered with spinach, goat cheese, roma tomato & red onion over roasted garlic mashed potatoes with a light roasted red pepper cream sauce.

3rd course-
chilled vanilla custard with candied walnuts.

Also, for $15 we will be offering a wine paired with each course.

All will be available after 5pm, September 4 to September 8.

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days..
