Restaurant week again? Already?

Yes. This week is Bethesda Row Restaurant Week, where you can indulge in a three course meal at one of the neighborhood’s top restaurants for only $30. The deals started yesterday and will be running through Sunday, April 17. A list of participating restaurants and menus can be found at The list includes local favorites Jaleo and Redwood. Don’t forget that special offers are also available at lunch, with three courses for $15.

Also happening in Bethesda this week, the Florida-based grill and wine bar chain Seasons 52 has opened its first Washington spot across from the White Flint Mall. No single dish served at Seasons 52 exceeds 475 calories, but each is packed with flavorful vegetables and proteins. Try the Sonoma goat cheese ravioli or the cedar plant roasted salmon.

Is Bethesda off the menu for you? There are a lot of other exciting openings in the District this week. Lincoln Restaurant opened yesterday in McPherson Square. The lunch menu features a fresh mix of soups, salads and sandwiches, all celebrating local farmers and healthy ingredients. The Lincoln burger is made from 100 percent Meyer Farms beef, topped with watercress, Pipe Dream Farms goat cheese and house made tomato jam.

Upper Crust Pizzeria is making its first appearance outside of the Boston area today on Pennsylvania Ave. between the White House and the World Bank. The New England chain tweaked the menu of thin-crust pizzas to reflect District culture. To give you a taste of it, the "Senate" is a version of the meat-lover’s pizza, topped with pepperoni, sausage, and hamburger. Another 10 locations are expected to pop up in the area over the next year or two.

Fiola‘s opening has had local foodies excited for months. The Penn Quarter spot (on Pennsylvania Ave., entrance at 678 Indiana Ave.) isn’t open just yet, but a recent tweet suggests that reservations are available for the April 18th opening.

@fioladc is taking reservations for every dinner this week and "maybe" also lunch starting Wednesday!! 2026282888less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® Favorite Retweet Reply
