I fully planned on preparing an in-depth post about all my favorite places to go during restaurant week. But anyone who knows me personally knows that I've not only started started a new job (that I love) but that said job is all consuming. As a result, it is having a serious impact on my motivation to write blog posts after work.
Basically, all I have motivation for when I get home each week night is to dive into my sweatpants, pour a glass of wine, lay on the couch for approximately two hours, and then go to bed. Write a blog post? Way too much work. Yes, I sound like an old, boring person.
That said, I do have plans to partake in restaurant week this weekend with a handsome man. When he asked me where I would want to go, I did find what little energy I had to research a few places and came up with a list...which I will share with you.
The secret to restaurant week is scoping out the more expensive restaurants. For instance, Front Page, I adore you for your burgers and Guiness' drafts on Monday nights, but why in the love of god would I want to go for restaurant week?
The first fancy schmancy place I immediately thought of was 1789. It is one of the best restaurants in D.C., not only for the food but also the historic ambiance. Sadly, it did not have any reservations available until 10pm each night. The other place that I've been dying to try is Restaurant Nora. Unfortunately, it is not participating in restaurant week.
So, I did more research and the three places that still have availability and also are prime spots to check out on restaurant week are:
Sea Catch in Georgetown
Urbana in Dupont Circle
The Caucus Room in the West End
Those are my recommendations. Stay tuned all week for the rest of the Gamma Girls' restaurant week recommendations.
