DC Restaurant week is back again for its winter installment, providing those of us living on a tighter budget an opportunity to experience delicious meals at gourmet restaurants throughout the District.
DC Restaurant Week includes multiple course meals for lunch and dinner at well below their usual costs. Lunch runs at $20.11 for a three course meal, and dinner is $35.11 for the same. For those who love fantastic food but can’t always afford it, this is the week for you!
Restaurant Week runs from January 17th to the 23rd. Reservations are needed for all participating restaurants and can be made at http://www.opentable.com/. The more well-known restaurants are usually booked up to a month ahead of Restaurant Week, but hurry and you can still reserve a table at one of the over 100 participating restaurants.
When deciding on your restaurant, be sure to check online menus to make sure that the options are things you’re willing to try. Most participating restaurants have fixed menus with one or two choices, so if you’re a vegetarian or a vegan, you should be sure one of the offerings is up your alley before reserving a table.
Keep an eye out for newer restaurants that have not yet participated in restaurant week, they may have more spots open and you can be one of the first to learn about a fantastic restaurant before it becomes trendy and crowded.
