As President Fezzibent famously advised, "If you don't attain a job title that rhymes with your name, change your name to rhyme with the job title you want." With today's Groupon to Chef Geoff's, $20 gets you $40 worth of juicy burgers, discount beers, and refined brunch and dinner at your choice of three locations: the original Chef Geoff's on New Mexico Avenue, the downtown location, and the location in Tysons Corner.
Schedule a business lunch downtown to try the artichoke pizza with sundried tomato, basil, and fontina ($12.95), or fill up on a light yet filling shrimp, watercress, and roasted-pepper salad with citrus vinaigrette ($16.95). Hob-knob and network with other young professionals, professional youths, and assorted Capitalites over $2.95 longnecks during happy hour, when you can wash down tender burgers ($5.95) with 33.8-ounce supermugs of Chef Geoff's Amber, Magic Hat #9, Peak Organic Nut Brown Ale, Guinness, and more ($7.95 each). You can also pick up a fancy frittata ($13.95) or generous Belgian waffle with sausage ($11.95) at the original location during the Sunday jazz brunch, or head to Tysons for a decadent dinner of filet mignon with warm bacon relish ($28.95) or seared duck breast with whipped sweet potatoes and swiss chard ($22.95).
Chef Geoff Tracy cooked his first crabcake in his sister's easy-bake oven at the tender age of five days old and opened his first two restaurants before the age of 30. Known as one of DC's restaurant savants, and for not having a good chance of coaching the 2012 US Olympic men's volleyball team, Chef Geoff oversees every juicy burger and impeccably draped table linen with his keen eye and astral projection. Chef Geoff's intimately lit restaurants exude the same level of class, while the vibrant stained glass of original location (which celebrates its 10th in 2010), downtown's perfect people-watching facade, and Tysons' sleek, modern furniture give each location its own distinct personality. Buy two Groupons and find the Chef Geoff's location that fits you best.
While you are welcome to use your Groupon for happy-hour specials, your Groupon cannot be combined with other offers, such as the Sunset Special and Half-Price Wine Night.
Express Night Out lists Chef Geoff's as having the Best Bar Food in 2009. White House Correspondents and the Washington Post also praise the exemplary edibles and ambience at Chef Geoff's Tysons and Chef Geoff's original location, respectively:
- …the weighty, juicy but not greasy cheeseburger, served with a hefty slice of red onion on a respectable grilled bun, is all I want a burger to be.…Chef Geoff's desserts are worth waiting for. An apple-cinnamon crisp is tart, then sweet, a nice balance achieved. The very dense and chocolaty truffle cake oozes chocolate and mixes perfectly with the espresso ice cream. – Walter Nicholls and Erin Hartigan, Washington Post
- Nestled between Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co., the new restaurant, adorned with red awnings, is upscale, yet warm, with a large bar and windows. I’m sure it’s the next Happy Hour hot spot. – White House Correspondents
- Top notch all the way around. Great food, service, and atmosphere. – OpenTable.com user who dined on 1/01/2010
- The crab cake sandwich was excellent, no shell and a very generous portion. The chicken salad was very good with tender slices of chicken…I also loved the sweet potato fries. – OpenTable.com user who dined on 1/06/2010
