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).

This was the bread starter – it was DELICIOUS. The bread was so soft and buttery…ugh, can’t even explain it.

Just for reference, here’s what my mom and I each ordered:

Stephanie:

  • 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)

 

Mom:

  • 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

Have you participated in Restaurant Week before?
