Restaurant Week is here, which means fantastic specials on some of the best food all around the city. The best part of happy hour is that it often coincides with dinner time plans. In other words, you can check out all of these Restaurant Week participants for happy hour and then stay for a $35 prefixed dinner. Come for the great drink deals and stay for the unique and carefully crafted tasting menus.
Enjoy happy hour in true Italian fashion by sipping on discounted prosecco and snacking on traditional Italian plates, like fresh ricotta with honey and almonds or arancini balls. Swing by Bibiana between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for probably the most authentic Italian happy hour you’ll find around here.
La Puerta Verde happy hour is perhaps one of the best reasons to make your way to Ivy City. If $2.50 tacos (with fillings ranging from fried cod to braised beef tongue to cactus salad) aren’t enough of a draw, stay for the $5 drafts and $6 sangria. Don’t forget to grab some elote while you’re there, it’s the quintessential drunk food. Happy hour at the bar is from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Grab some drinks and stay for a delicious restaurant week menu with traditional Mexican fare.
For an eclectic mix of happy hour food and drink, check out Lyon Hall. Grab some $5 drafts or wines by the glass and snack on some Bavarian pretzels, mussels of all different flavors combinations, or a ham and cheese croissant. Happy hour is everyday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., meaning that you can anytime for a snack and some drinks and head to the dining room for the Restaurant Week specials whenever you’d like.
From $4 drafts to $7 house cocktails (like the Fig Delight with fig infused tequila and agave nectar), Agora has got happy hour covered. They also offer a wide selection of $4 Mediterranean spreads and $6 flat breads to please every palate from hardcore carnivores to strictly meatless. Bring some friends and grab a $25 bottle of any house wine and snack your way through the flavors of Turkey, Greece, and Lebanon from 3:00pm to 7:00pm on weekdays and Sunday from 5:00pm to close.
Start your post-work evening out right with happy hour from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. daily. Sushiko offers lots of sake to taste as well as hand crafted sushi rolls and snacks. Try a craft cocktail, like the Tokyo Bellini (with prosecco, lychee puree, and pomegranate reduction) plus some crispy brussels sprouts and a shrimp tempura handroll to tide you over until dinnertime.
