One of my family’s favorite weeks is Restaurant Week.
It’s a great way to explore (expensive) restaurants in your area by eating a full course that you otherwise might never do.
So the day before I headed off to school, my mom and I went to J. Gilbert’s, a steakhouse near my house that is famous for their wood-grilled steaks, as it was one of the many restaurants participating in DC Restaurant Week.
I’ll leave the rest to the photos (although they are a bit dark because it tends to be that expensive, up-scale, usually steak house restaurants are dimly lit – so I apologize for the horrible lighting).
Just for reference, here’s what my mom and I each ordered:
- Appetizer | Crab Bisque
- Main | Flat Iron Steak w/ a side of Mac and Cheese and Asparagus
- Dessert | Cookie Box (which is not shown because it was just cookies)
- Appetizer | Wedge Salad
- Main | Ribs w/ a side of french fries and some sort of corn dish
- Dessert | Dark Chocolate Velvet Cake w/ whipping cream and raspberry sorbet
Don’t these look delicious? I am craving these now as I write the blog post haha
Have you participated in Restaurant Week before?
