Bon Appétit! Winter Restaurant Week in D.C. is a Foodie’s Dream

Winter Restaurant Week in D.C.

Winter Restaurant Week Metro DC is a time when many of the finest eating establishments in the Washington, D.C., area offer three-course lunches for $20.12 and three-course dinners for $35.12 (or their equivalent).

Restaurant Week occurs biannually, and this season’s week-long smorgasbord kicks off January 9 and runs until January 15. This event has been taking place, in one form or another, since 2001.

I can’t think of a better way for food-lovers to start off the year.

Produced by Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington and Destination DC, Winter Restaurant Week features more than 220 culinary mainstays in the region for you and your palate. Some restaurants we’ve profiled on the blog are taking part as well, including Jaleo, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Tabaq Bistro.

Reading through the restaurant list, you’re struck by the magnitude of eateries involved. You have your American, French, Mediterranean, southern, seafood, Spanish, Asian, you name it. Name the type of vittles you want; those are the types of vittles you get.

Foodies, or just those who read the Washingtonian on a regular basis, will recognize many of the participating establishments. In that magazine’s list of the “100 Very Best Restaurants” for 2011, an impressive nine restaurants in the top 25 are taking part in the festivities. Some of these names include number nine Rasika, number 15 Bistro Bis and number 24 Sushi Taro.

And there are plenty of other top-shelf eats to be had, too.

Restaurant Week is a pretty big deal for area food enthusiasts. The Washington Post recently did a write-up on the upcoming event. This is a good week to sample some cuisine that may otherwise be out of your officebot price range.

So, all of you apartment renters out there with a taste for fine dining, walk, hit the Metrorail or drive to your favorite participating restaurant.

And dig in!
