If you live in the Washington, D.C. area and looking for great places to eat that aren’t chain restaurants, then there’s a resource for you.
Several months ago, Kellie and I were clued into something called Tastings Journal.
Once a month, for at least a week and sometimes longer, they team up with a restaurant in the D.C. area to offer a four or five course tasting menu, usually including paired wines or other drinks, for what are really good prices (typically from $ 45 to $ 55 per person for the entire tasting).
Thanks to these guys, we’ve discovered two great restaurants we might not have found otherwise; Cabanas at Georgetown Harbour and 100 King in Alexandria. Next week, we’ll be going to a new restaurant downtown and the tasting menu there looks great.
If you’re interested, you can go to their website and sign up to get on the mailing list.
