It feels like just yesterday I was writing one of my first posts about Summer Restaurant Week. And it’s that time again!
Winter Restaurant Week starts on Monday January 11 and runs through Sunday January 17. If you’re new to DC’s dining scene, Restaurant Week offers 3 course prix fixe lunches for $20.10 and dinners for $35.10 at select restaurants. It’s a great way for restaurants to get people in the door during an otherwise less-busy time, and for diners to experience a meal out at a discounted price. Some restaurants are a better value than others, and keep in mind that diners have varying experience in terms of level of service, due to increased traffic at the restaurants.
And here’s a roundup of other postings promoting the do’s and don’ts, maps, and menus:
- DC Foodies provides RW tips for newbies as well as links to menus and a listing of restaurants that are extending Restaurant Week
The Washingtonian will continue to update their list of Restaurant Week extensions
Chowhounders discuss which participating restaurants they’re most excited about
- Capital Spice shows a map of the restaurants, along with some commentary
- The Washington Post lists Restaurant Week as one of its Arts & Entertainment Best Bets for this coming week
You can make your reservations at many of the participating restaurants on OpenTable. My suggestion is to peruse the menus using one of the links below and to choose restaurants that are typically in the $$$ to $$$$ range on OpenTable.
