DC’s tourism site doesn’t have the list of restaurants up yet, but the official announcement date is July 23. I’m pretty sure that OpenTable’s list of participating venues is accurate though. Some sources are saying the dinner cost may be $35.08, which wouldn’t be in line with previous years, but could be a nod to our we’re-not-in-a-recession.
I’ve gotten co-workers to head out for an upscale group lunch before and taken advantage of at least one dinner out when Restaurant Week rolls around. Tables at “popular” dining times can go fast, so flexibility is advised. If there’s a place you’ve been itching to try, Restaurant Week is a good way to test the waters and get a nice reasonably priced night out.
Update: The Washington Post has a full list of restaurants.
Update 2: $35.08 for dinner is confirmed.
