Lingering in the shadows of DC Restaurant Week is Bethesda Restaurant Week, which happens NEXT WEEK, July 17th through the 23rd. While there aren't nearly as many restaurants participating, the deals you'll find are just as good. You can find a list of participating restaurants here, however, I did a little research last night, and here is a little more info about what the different participating restaurants will be offering. Dinner is $30 or $22 per person and lunch is $15 per person.
La Miche is offering their extensive three-course dinner menu, which is normally available for $35 per person. Look here for their regular menu. Note: Items with a * are not available.
Passage to India
Passage to India is my favorite restaurant in Bethesda. Chef Sudhir Seth is putting his most popular items and a few dishes which are his favorite but not on the menu. Here's there Restaurant Week Menu.
Mon Ami Gabi
Lunch and Dinner
The first time I was ever at a Mon Ami Gabi was in Las Vegas. I had a good enough steak there, that when the location in Bethesda opened, I went back again. You'll enjoy their unconventional frites. Click here for their lunch menu and here for their dinner menu.

From what I can tell, Grapeseed has their entire menu available to Restaurant Week diner. For some of the entrees, there is a small upcharge, but otherwise it's all there. Look here for a copy of their menu for the week.
I found out from David Craig that they will have a few choices from their appetizers, entrees, and desserts, but I don't have any details about which will be available.
Those are the only restaurants that have responded so far. Hopefully that helps you make up your mind on where you want to go.
