During the National Philharmonic Orchestra’s busy winter season starting in early October at Strathmore Hall, 100 or so musicians begin foraging for fine grub in the brief couple of hours between the end of early evening rehearsals and that night’s performances (you know who we, er, you are).
And the logics of geography bring us to one of Maryland’s finest culinary centers -- Rockville! We have enjoyed many a meal at exciting restaurants like Amina Thai and Pho, and now it seems like the Chamber of Commerce gods are smiling on we humble classical musicians in the coming weeks.
From October 4 through October 10, the Rockville Chamber of Commerce is presenting Rockville Restaurant Week with “special prix-fixe menus, priced at either $8 lunch/$15 for dinner or $10 lunch/$25 dinner, and 31 restaurants to choose from.” Yum.
Their special Restaurant Week website is at www.rockvillerestaurantweek.com.
See you there!
