Restaurant Week and Extentions List

Restaurant Week officially starts Monday.
I’m looking forward to my week at various DC area restaurants. Monday I have lunch at Farrah Olivia – one of my favorite spots and is of course one of the Washingtonian’s Very Best 100 Restaurants.
I’ve been able to find out the RW menu for Farrah Olivia. It is as follows, with the standard Lunch 3 courses prix-fixe for $20.09
First Course:
Painted soup (smoky chestnut, gingery squash, beet cider)
Organic green salad
White grit cake (cinnamon cider squash, candied red cabbage)
Second Course:
Tarragon gnudi (with arugula salad)
Pan roasted chicken (pecan crusted with mushroom mac and cheese)
Arctic char (with yucca couscous)
Dessert:
Almond panna cotta
Chocolate espresso cheesecake
Vanilla crème brulee

Tuesday dinner I will venture out to Reston
to Passionfish. PassionFish is the newest restaurant of Passion Food Hospitality, whose owners, Chef Jeff Tunks, Gus Dimillo, and David Wizenberg. I am of course very familiar with their work since I have visited DC Coast, Acadiana, and Ceiba. I don’t believe that I have ever been to TenPenh. Here is a copy of the Restaurant Week Menu with their offerings for lunch and dinner.

I might try to schedule a visit to Dino on Sunday. I got a newsletter type email from the Chef, Dean Gold. He said that Dino has some availability for Wednesday and Sunday, and decent avaiability on Tuesday. I noticed that according to opentable.com that they have a lot of dinner reservations such as 5 p.m., 5:15 p.m., 5:45 p.m., etc. Also that Thursday, Friday and Saturday are pretty tight already except for early and late time slots. I thought that it was interesting to find out that Dino plans to open for dinner service 30 minutes early February 16 thru March 22 to accomodate as many as possible! They are also extending restaurant week another full week thru March 1. They said that they offer “restaurant week” every week, they are adding a crostini trio to patrons meals for this week (there will be no free corkage or menu della sera thru March 1).
