I LOVE DC Restaurant Week, especially since it comes twice a year. Restaurant Week allows me to try out restaurants that I wouldn’t normally eat at and for a discounted price. A dear friend of mine had been telling me for months, maybe even a year about this restaurant in Dupont Circle called Urbana. This past winter, during Restaurant Week, I finally got a chance to check the place out. I give the place a 9 out 10. My experience there was awesome.
The food was great, the ambiance was relaxing and the waiter had great customer service. Did I also mention that he kept bring free glasses of champagne to our table? YES, free champagne. And you know I never turn down free drinks. I can’t remember what I ate, but it was delicious. Dessert was amazing as well. My friend doesn’t even eat dessert, but he was tempted to order something and ate every last bit of his as well.
This summer restaurant week is August 15-21, 2011. If you are participating this summer, definitely add Urbana to your list.
