Each day for the duration of the week of bacon, Restaurant 3
will offer a daily Bacon Happy Hour, where bar guests can
feast on bacon bites such as bacon on a stick & bacon-wrapped
shrimp and wash it all down with $3 craft beer draft specials.
Alexandria, Virginia - Few flavors are as widely regarded and loved as bacon, and Restaurant 3 is putting the spotlight on the cured meat by dedicating an entire week to its smoky salty goodness.
The Clarendon neighborhood restaurant is celebrating the “Week of Bacon” from October 21-27.
Each day for the duration of the week of bacon, the restaurant will offer a daily Bacon Happy Hour, where bar guests can feast on bacon bites such as bacon on a stick & bacon-wrapped shrimp and wash it all down with $3 craft beer draft specials.
Executive Chef Brian Robinson cures all his own bacon in-house and is a firm believer in the foodie philosophy that, “Everything tastes better with bacon,” a philosophy that he looks forward to sharing with his guests through his gut-busting Bacon Tasting Menu being offered throughout the duration of the Week of Bacon. Priced at $30 per person, the menu will feature some of Robinson’s favorite food and bacon pairings such as Bacon & Eggs and Maple Bacon Ice Cream.
