Listen: When Restaurant Week comes to DC, you go.
Having participated in DC Restaurant Week for the last seven years now, I’ve developed a strategy: I prefer restaurants that allow you to pick from the full menu for the most part, and I go for the unique restaurants that give you a, well, unique, cool experience.
This year my two choices came down to Acadiana or NOPA. Strictly due to availability, NOPA won. And I have to say: it.was.delicious. *queue the orchestra music*
Ambiance was amazing. Staff was great. Vibe was chill but nice.
What I ordered:
- Grilled Spanish Octopus
- Bistro Filet Steak “Frites”
- Chocolate Cheesecake
- Wine (not pictured) was Yorkville 2014 Malbec
Per usual, I was “that” friend snappin’ pictures at the table.
