Jody’s Jam of the Week: D.C. Restaurant Week

If you’re serious about sticking to your diet resolutions, you may want to skip this Jam. However, if you’re down for keeping the grub going full-speed to your belly, then I highly recommend jumping on D.C. Restaurant Week.

Kicking off next Monday, a whole boatload of area restauants are offering up special menus for dinner ($35.12) and lunch ($20.12). This is a chance to hit up some spots where the regular menu prices send shivers through your bank account. While there’s plenty of great participating spots, the joints 1905, Acadiana, Aredo+Bardeo, Birch & Barley, Bistro Bis, Dino, Elisir, Graffiato, Jackson 20, Liberty Tavern, Poste, PS7’s, RIS, Vermilion and Willow are my picks of the litter. In Falls Church, only Argia’s and Open Kitchen are getting in on some Restaurant Week action.
