Winter Restaurant Week
Say goodbye to your New Year’s resolutions of eating less. Winter Restaurant Week 2014 kicked off on Monday with a record-breaking 250 restaurants participating in the bi-annual week dedicated to eating your way through the region.
Winter Restaurant Week features special prices coinciding with the year with a prix-fixe three-course lunch for $20.14 and three-course dinner for $35.14 through Sunday, Jan. 19. The Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington represents members of the growing restaurant industry in the District, Northern Virginia and suburban Maryland and showcases Restaurant Week every summer and winter encouraging diners to “Dine Out. Eat Up.” Most restaurants feature special menus for the seven-days of foodie heaven, giving diners a unique chance to try an old favorite or explore a new option.
“Restaurant Week is a great time to take a ride into town to try something new,” said RAMW marketing and communications director Kyle Rees.
New for Winter Restaurant Week 2014 is a guidebook full of reviews from Open Table on the participating restaurants. The book is available at a number of D.C. hotels and can help narrow down the overwhelming number of choices for the week.
If looking for something new, a few restaurants in the District are making their debut to Restaurant Week including; Mike Isabella’s Kapnos and G (2201 14th St NW), Alba Osteria (425 “I” St NW), The Arsenal (300 Tingey St. SE) and Teddy & the Bully Bar (1200 19th St. NW).
“Restaurant week offers a great promotion for our regional diners to dine out and try many new and existing restaurants around town,” said RAMW president and CEO Kathy Hollinger. Another addition is the “Try Something New in 2014” contest. Through Restaurant Week’s partner NBC4, diners who “Like” NBC4 on Facebook will be entered to win a prize package including lunch for two at J&G Steakhouse and two “Blissage 75” massages at Bliss Spa, both located within the W Hotel on 15th Street, NW. Sponsors of Restaurant Week include Meat and Livestock Australia, Cuisine Solutions, Open Table and American Express with media partners NBC4, 94.7 Fresh FM and DC Modern Luxury.
