dr.com Grapeseed Special Menu This Weekend - Ridiculously Cheap

Recommended Posts

Chef Jeff Heineman announced HERE what must be about the most ridiculously priced donrockwell.com special meal to come along in years. A four-course, mushroom-themed, tasting menu with LAMB CHOP and POMPANO, and FULL WINE PAIRINGS for the insane price of $30. Thirty Dollars! That's $7.50 a course will full wine pairings!

For the click-challenged, here are Jeff's details, copied from his announcement. It's this Friday and Saturday night only, and you must call for reservations, and request the "donrockwell.com special." Note that if there is interest, but only if there is interest, he will be running a special each week, so let's throw out support behind this one, my friends! This would be, by far, my number one choice for dining out in the Washington, DC area this weekend.

Like Tom Power's recent Corduroy special, the beauty of this is that there's no "event" per se; you and your family or friends can just go to Grapeseed whenever you'd like this weekend, and order it. No specific time, no dining with people you've never met, no awkward conversations with strangers; just raw savings. Please tip well?

Dr.com members, please tweet this and tell your friends on Facebook - we need to support Grapeseed for extending this generosity.


Okay, Let's see if anybody actually reads this and/or cares about dining out this week. Here is our tasting menu for the week with a DR.com special at the bottom. We will run this menu on Friday and Saturday only.

Mushroom Wonderland Menu

Amuse Bouche

Grilled Portobello Mushroom, Arugula, Prosciutto-Truffle Vinaigrette

Sauteed Pompano, Lobster Mushrooms, Maine Lobster Cream

Grilled Australian Lamb Chops, Chanterelles, Malbec Reduction

Homemade Pumpkin Ice Cream, Dulce de Leche, Oatmeal Cookies

We have wine pairings for this, of course.

It is $55.

If you mention that you heard about it on Donrockwell.com I will only charge $30. Sounds like a deal.

Free upgrade from Tastes of wine to Glasses as well.

reservations are at 301.986.9592.

if there is interest I will run a DR.com special each week

Not to temper Don's enthusiasm, but he did screw up a little, probably because hewas posting at 2:30 in the am.

We are doing Glasses of wine for the price of Tastes. So, three glasses of wine paired up with first three courses will set you back $17.50 instead of $35. Ergo, the full menu with glasses of wine will be $47.50 instead of $85.

Or the menu is $30.

Hopefully Don gets some sleep. Sorry for any confusion.

By somewhat popular demand we will do this again this weekend. Again, please mention you want the DonRockwell.com discount when you make your reservation, so we can keep track. Just for mentioning we will do this weeks Tasting Menu for $30 instead of $55. Glasses of paired wines would be $16 instead of $32. The menu is really not for vegetarians this week. I will be doing an All-Vegetable menu next week, with the same deal.

Here's the menu:

Air, Earth and Sea Menu

Friday, September 28th & Saturday, September 29th

To participate in the tasting menu all members of your party must order the tasting menu.

Thank You and Enjoy!!
