Currently more than 2000 restaurants cover the DC metropolitan area and hungry theatre goers are constantly looking for the best eateries to enjoy before or after a show. Welcome to Delish Dining where we will visit your favorite restaurants and bring you news of culinary happenings. Enjoy!
DC’s Summer Restaurant Week, presented by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington, runs from August 11 to August 17. With over 200 restaurants participating, hungry foodies can explore new restaurants, trying out three course (or more) menus ranging in price from $20.14 (lunch) to $35.14 (dinner).
We recommend that you make your reservations as early as possible, as many of the popular restaurants fill up quickly. You can find all the Restaurant Week restaurants, their lunch and dinner menus and reservation links here.
There is an abundance to choose from, so we’ve perused the menus to pick our top recommendations.

Revithosalata or dolmades are a must for the first course; farm house vegetable salad or spanakopita for the second; fava or spit roasted chicken for your third course, and baklava to end on a sweet note. Don’t feel bad if you’re also tempted to choose more selections off the regular menu. Kapnos will understand.
This is a new column for DCTS, and we’d like to hear from you.
