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. New this year, more than two dozen restaurants are also offering lunch specials at $10, $15 or $20 per person. 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.

New to Alexandria Winter Restaurant Week are Hank’s Pasta Bar, Sunday in Saigon, Cedar Knoll, Café 44, La Trattoria and Nectar Coffee & Wine Bistro. Returning participants include Restaurant Eve, Sonoma Cellar, Magnolia’s On King, Vermilion, Evening Star Cafe, Virtue Feed & Grain, Mason Social, Cheesetique, Columbia Firehouse and Del Ray Café.  

Dates: January 26-February 4, 2018

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.

Alexandria Restaurant Week is sponsored by the Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association and is a popular event, occurring twice per year, in the winter (January/February) and summer (August). For a complete list of all of the participating restaurants and to make reservations, visit
