In and around Bethesda we have a wide range of options when it comes to finding a great place to eat. Local restaurants, cafes and pubs are also a leading lifeline for our economy. When we dine out, we are directly supporting our community. In an effort to promote the incredible dishes you can enjoy around the region, and support local businesses, Bethesda Magazine has announced the latest Bethesda Restaurant Week, coming up January 13th- 22nd.
Bethesda Restaurant Week is a great way to check out some of the best places for lunch or dinner in town. Each participating restaurant, pub or café offers either a two-course lunch for $16 per person, and/or a three-course dinner for $36 per person. With almost 30 establishments participating in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, North Bethesda, Potomac and Silver Spring, you can enjoy lunch and dinner throughout Restaurant Week with ease.
If you are interested in tasting some dishes with international flavors, check out the menus at Kapnos Kouzina, for rustic Greek dishes or Raku for fine Asian dining in Bethesda. If you have a special romantic evening coming up, head over to Chevy Chase where you will find La Ferme, a French restaurant voted as the most romantic restaurant by Bethesda Magazine readers in 2016.
You’ll have no problem finding some excellent pies to taste during Bethesda Restaurant Week. Mia’s Pizza in and Stella Barra Pizzeria are both on the list for lunch and dinner choices. Not to be forgotten are some great seafood restaurants too. Mussel Bar & Grille offers seafood and more inspired by the owner’s Belgian roots. Passion Fish offers not only the freshest in seafood from around the region and the world, but they also have a special kids menu so you can bring the whole family along.
In and around Bethesda there are also some incredible pubs and wine bars which are also participating in Bethesda Restaurant Week. With over 100 wines to choose from, Oakville Grille & Wine Bar is a wine taster’s paradise. Tapped brings customers over 40 beers on tap and more than 100 bottles of brew in a fun sports bar atmosphere. For a truly local taste, check out Urban Winery in Silver Spring. As the region’s first urban winery, their wines are cultivated with care, using traditional preservation methods which result in little to no sulfites within the wine.
There are more restaurants anticipated to be joining in the upcoming Bethesda Restaurant Week. I have only highlighted a few. The Bethesda Magazine website has all the participating businesses listed with their select menus for lunch and dinner, as well as links for making reservations, which you will want to do. Restaurant Week is a popular regional event around here, and establishments get booked quickly.
