What is Restaurant Week?
This happens twice a year here in DC where restaurants offer a three course menu for a fixed price of $20+ for lunch and $35+ for dinner. People usually take advantage of this because restaurants that participate in restaurant week usually have entrees around $20-26 so restaurant week is definitely a good deal.
Since this dinner was unplanned, we didn't have a reservation which meant that we had to wait 40 minutes to get a table. So we waited at the bar. Their cocktails go at $10 and their wines around $6 and up per glass and we discovered that they have happy hour twice a day during weekdays: 4-6pm and 10pm until it closes.
Here's what we had:
Butternut Squash Soup
Grilled Salmon served on a bed of grits
Roasted Duck cooked low and slow
served with squash and dirty rice bits
The serving was quite big that I had half of it to go.
Boston Cream Pie
Banana Rum Chocolate Cake
The bar prides itself for having 99 different bottles of beer
Pacific Rim Mojito
(i had three!)
I will definitely go back to this place, if not for lunch or dinner, definitely for happy hour!
