The OpenTable reservation scramble is already in full gear for the District’s upcoming Restaurant Week (August 11 through 17). In the meantime, take advantage of Bethesda’s version of the dining deal—it started Monday and lasts through August 3.
At Bethesda and Chevy Chase restaurants, RW dinners are still $30—we’ve heard some grumbling about the promotion’s $5 price hike in DC—and it’s usually not as tough to score a prime-time reservation. RW lunch in Bethesda is an even better deal, with most restaurants offering two or more courses for $12 to $15. Some top choices may be booked, but last-minute cancellations abound during any Restaurant Week.
Our picks? We’d happily grab a table (and a discounted meal) at Chevy Chase’s new branch of Sushi-Ko; the recently renovated wine bar Grapeseed; or Passage to India, one of the area’s best Indian dining rooms. Other enticing options include David Craig Bethesda, Raku, Rock Creek (dinner only), Jaleo, and Faryab (dinner only). Or try out one of the newest additions to Bethesda’s dining scene: Assaggi (lunch only), Visions, and Redwood (dinner only) are all participating.
