January 14-20: DC Restaurant Week
DC Restaurant Week is coming up January 14-20. Participating restaurants offer 3-course meals for $20.08 and dinners for $30.08. Eric gave a rundown of some participating restaurants in Arlington during the last Restaurant Week.
Personally, I'm not a big fan:
- The good restaurants book up fast
- Many restaurants offer only limited menus for Restaurant Week customers (2-3 choices for each course)
- Unless it's a pricier restaurant and you were definitely going to eat a whole appetizer, entree, and dessert, it's sometimes not a good deal (and who spends $20 plus tax and tip on lunch, anyway?)
- Some restaurants are known to treat their Restaurant Week customers like they're sitting at the kiddie table
