Some Helpful Tips to Make the Most of Restaurant Week:
- Branch out! Try a cuisine you’ve never had before, it may turn out to be your new favorite.
- Check out the menus and what previous diners have to say about your restaurant of choice. For the pricier dining spots, Restaurant Week is definitely a great deal however; some restaurants create pre-fixed menus that might not be as cost-efficient in comparison to ‘normal’ weeks.
- When making your reservations, double check that the restaurant is participating in the deals for both lunch and dinner.
Do you love food but live a little too far away from DC? Don’t worry- many outside neighborhoods are having their own week dedicated to deliciousness.
