Dine like a sir: Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week preview

Restaurant Le CommerceFor all the foodies out there in Washington, next week will be a second Christmas. D.C.’s Restaurant Week is a week not only full of delicious top-notch food, but also great deals.

From Feb. 4 to 10, hundreds of area restaurants will offer a fixed lunch menu, all for $20.13, and a set dinner menu, fixed at $35.13. A certain set few even better deals for the price.

Many of these places include restaurants that usually charge $25 or $30 dollars per entrée, so these fixed menu prices, which usually include an appetizer, entrée, and dessert, are definitely a bargain, not to mention the fact that this promotion might be the only week us poor college students might afford to experience Washington’s finest dining.

We all know what it is like to get stuck in a rut … and it’s not pretty. Restaurant Week is an opportunity to try something new and expand your palate (literally). D.C. is a hub for exquisite and authentic ethnic food, and if you haven’t been to at least one Ethiopian restaurant, you’re not a real Washingtonian.
