Semi Annual Restaurant Week 2017 – Thirty restaurants will take part in Bethesda Magazine Restaurant Week, which will run from August 11-19. The list includes local favorites such as Black’s Bar & Kitchen, Barrel + Crow, and Summer House Santa Monica. This summer’s Restaurant Week will be different than past years, said Steve Hull, editor, and publisher of Bethesda Magazine, which puts on the semi-annual dining event. “In previous years, the restaurants had to offer the same number of courses at the same price,” Hull said. “This summer we gave the restaurants the latitude to decide both the number of courses they were going to offer and the price.” That way, diners will be able to choose the menus that best fit their palettes and budgets, he said.
