Restaurant Week Starts Today!
The summer edition of Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week starts today and runs through August 25, 2013. Local French bistro Le Chat Noir is the only participating neighborhood restaurant according to the official restaurant week website, though the special dinner menu is still not available online. I know Le Chat Noir is technically in Friendship Heights, but I give it honorary Tenleytown status. With that definition in mind, I guess I should give mention to Top Chef alum Bryan Voltaggio’s Range, Rosa Mexicano and The Capital Grille, although they are much, much further up the hill away from Tenleytown. With so many restaurants in Tenleytown, it is disappointing that a few more are not represented. I’d like to see more fine dining come down from Friendship Heights to our neck of the woods.
