Foodies, time to rejoice -- it’s that time of year again. A cascade of dining deals has kicked off with the Bethesda Chevy Chase Restaurant Week. And when we say "week," well... the interpretation of "week" is actually pretty generous. The Bethesda event, which kicked off July 26, has just been extended through Aug. 8.
Plus, it'll be closely followed by similar events in Baltimore (Aug. 13-22), Alexandria (Aug. 20-29) and D.C. (Aug. 16-22).
Obviously, most of these planners don't quite grasp the concept of what a "week" is, but who's complaining? Cue the reservation-making frenzy. During Bethesda Chevy Chase Restaurant Week, enjoy a prix fixe lunch for $12 to $15 and a three-course dinner menu for $25 to $30 at many of the locale's most popular spots, including Persimmon (7003 Wisconsin Ave. Bethesda), Redwood (7121 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda) and Mon Ami Gabi (7239 Woodmont Ave., Bethesda.
Reserve your table soon because the best restaurants are sure to be booked up in no time. See the full list of participating restaurants here.
