During Alexandria Restaurant Week more than 60 restaurants will be offering special menus and pricing to entice visitors to dine in Alexandria, Virginia, just five miles south of Washington, DC. The restaurants are offering either a $35 prix-fixe three-course dinner or $35 dinner for two. Alexandria Restaurant Week is a great time to try a new restaurant at reduced prices. During this event diners can indulge in some of the latest food trends in Old Town,  Del Ray, Carlyle and the West End, at fine dining establishments and casual neighborhood favorites. See a map of Alexandria.

Dates: August 15-24, 2014

Tips for Getting the Most out of Alexandria Restaurant Week

  • Make reservations early, many of the most popular restaurants get booked up.
  • Read menus and reviews. Restaurant Week is a good deal at the priciest restaurants. Some restaurants offer pre-fixed menus all the time, so specials during this week may not offer as big a savings.
  • When you make your reservation, confirm pricing and that the restaurant is participating in Restaurant Week.
  • Share your experience. Submit a Restaurant Review.
