DC Restaurant Week, Aug. 11-17

From OpenTable.com:

DC Restaurant Week
Gourmet Prix-Fixe Menus
August 11-17, 2008

Enjoy special three-course, prix fixe menus at some of the city’s best restaurants.

Pricing: $20.08 lunches, $3035.08 dinners; prices are per person and do not include beverage, tax or gratuity

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.

    Tried Farrah Olivia in Alexandria and Dino in DC during a Restaurant Week not so long ago and it was a great experience. I highly recommend both places. 🙂

    @lacochran: I haven’t been to either of those places, but I’ll keep them in mind!

  3. Restaurant Week is one of the biggest things I miss about moving back to Southern California. I miss the food scene in DC and when I visit next, I should time it with Restaurant Week.
