Restaurant Week

Restaurant Week will be Monday march 3-March 9th. There are 25 locally owned restaurants participating, and all will offer a three-course prix-fixe dinner for $25.08. (A penny up from last year) They are:
Andy's Mediterranean, Behle Street, Bella Luna, Brown Dog Cafe, Chalk, Daveed's, deSha's, Greenup Cafe, Holy Grail, Hugo, Jag's, Pigall's, Jimmy D's, Kona, Mesh, Mike & Jimmy's, Molly Malone's (not sure which one) Nicholson's, O'Bryon's, Polo Grille, Pompilio's, Primavista, The Pubs, Red, Universal Grille and Washington Platform.

There may be more added. Make your plans--and go to a restaurant you've never tried before. It's great that this is getting off the ground.

Are the independents going to post their menus for the week? I'll take it as assumed that you can't just order off the regular menu (particularly at the higher end joints) due to the prices being so low....depending on what is (and is not) offerred, this may or may not be such a good deal.

The deal is for special e-course dinners. I think they'll have menus on their web sites, or check out www.gcindependents.com

I assume you meant 3-course rather than e-course....which is what I understood to be the case, but I am not finding these special menus on the gc independents site nor on the individual restaurant websites either....I sure hope they deal with this soon!

TJ - I assume the restaurants will get around to posting menus a bit closer to the time. Or Polly or Stepf shld write more about them closer to the time. Based on the last time around, the restaurants were fairly disorganized about this till the last minute. We'll get you news on menu items when we know more.

I am looking forward to trying some of the finer restaurants such as Jag's. Which I would highly recommend. Save room for the awesome cheese cake. I have never heard of this event before so I am not sure what to expect.

What would be your best establishment be that is on the list?
