Washington DC: Turkish Restaurant Week 2009

By JULIETTE ROSSANT

The idea of restaurant week is catching on. There are kids’ versions (see Super Chef‘s Kids’ Restaurant Weekand now there is Turkish Cuisine and Restaurant Week in the Nation’s capital.

It turns out there are more then enough Turkish restaurants in and near Washington DC to fill up this event.

Turkish Festival Washington 2009

Sponsored by the American Turkish Association of Washington DC (ATA-DC), the event takes place from September 18 -26, 2009. You can get a four-course Turkish meal for $25 per person. There are seven participating restaurants – one for each day of the week for those starved for the grand cuisine of the Ottomans.

If you prefer to learn about the cuisine along with noshing, then catch Celebration at the Sultan’s Palace, a cooking demonstration by Channon Mondoux of Renaissance Cuisine on September 21 at Sur La Table in Arlington, Virginia – you’ll get to eat and learn at the same time.

Here is the list:

Café 8
Café Divan
The Levante’s Dupont Circle
Meze Restaurant and Lounge
Rosemary’s Thyme Bistro DC
Temel Restaurant
Westchester Restaurant

Although not participating in the week special, Super Chef also like the following regional Turkish restaurants:

Kazan Restaurant
