It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  Okay, maybe not, but it is DC Restaurant Week, so we asked some of DC’s well known residents to tell us what restaurants they are hitting up this month.

The ubiquitous DJ Tommy McFly , who recently “flipped to Fresh,” tells us he always goes out for Restaurant Week because he “loves a good deal,” and who doesn’t?

I don’t listen to the haters who say places serve nasty food or you get bad service. Sure, I’ve had my share of that, namely the blah meal I got at Bistro Bis one time, or the crap service at the late Restaurant K by Alison Swope where the waiter actually told my table to eat their greens. But when you hit gold, you REALLY hit gold with RW. You can get more bang for your buck than Spitzer at the Mayflower. So where am I dining this RW? I’ll tell you… now that I’ve got all my reservations secured. Continue reading
