Equinox 18th Anniversary “Golf” Game

Thu, May 18

It’s throwback time at Equinox Restaurant as it gets ready to celebrate 18 years as one of Washington’s beloved restaurants. To inspire guests to try the most iconic dishes from the restaurant’s nearly two decades in business, Equinox is kicking off a fun and interactive 18 “hole” golf game. Each dish corresponds to a “hole” on the “green” and when guests complete all 18 holes they receive a golf-related prize. The dishes featured in the game highlight Chef Gray’s passion for sustainable seafood, Mid-Atlantic cuisine, and innovative interpretations of classic American fare. This is a nod to two of Chef Gray’s passions and a chance for guests to have a bit of fun while dining on dishes cultivated and refined over many years. A sample of the dishes included in this three month promotion include 1999’s truffled macaroni & cheese, 2003’s pan fried soft shell crab with pickled spring onions, and 2006’s risotto of spring sweet peas, carrot brunoise, pea green salad, and red wine sauce. There will also be a “fairway” lunch special, which includes a “putter” and a “chipper” course for $18. When the game wraps up in August, participants are invited to join Equinox for its golf-themed wrap party on the patio featuring a classic 1980’s golf movie. 818 Connecticut Avenue NW.
