It is that time of the year again.  DC Winter Restaurant Week.  Here is the gist of it.  Restaurant Week consists of the best DC area restaurants offering a 3 course prix fixe meal for $20.10 for lunch and $30.10 for dinner.  Restaurant week is from January 11-17, 2010.  So making a reservation at your favorite restaurants is a must as they fill up.

Here are my tips for a great restaurant week

  • Pick a restaurant that has the full menu for restaurant week
  • Stay away from the Steak Houses – They are usually lame
  • If the restaurant has a Restaurant Week menu look at it on their website before reserving a spot.
  • Try a new restaurant – Restaurant Week gives you the opportunity to try new and interesting cuisines.
  • Have fun! – Order a glass of wine with dinner.

Here is my list of restaurants.  All of them serve the lunch and dinner prix fixe unless otherwise noted.  I have provided links to check for reservations.  The links are set to look for open tables starting Jan. 11.
