Tired of Wisey’s, or Booey’s, or Wingo’s? Try something new for cheaper than usual this week.
The 17th annual Restaurant Week is bringing deals to over 200 restaurants in the DC-area. Participating restaurants are offering three course lunches and dinners at $20.11 and $35.11, respectively. Tax, tip, and beverages are not included, though. Most restaurants are participating from January 17 to January 23, but some businesses will be offering their deals until the end of the month.
Georgetown Patch has posted a full list of the restaurants participating in Georgetown.
Make sure to make your reservations soon because many places are already full for the week.

Because gourmet cuisine is the perfect antidote to unpacking
Twice a year, D.C.’s fine dining establishments take a week to collectively pander to the middle-class masses. During Washington’s semiannual Restaurant Week, you’ll be able to enjoy a meal at that swanky place that you’ve never had enough money in your bank account to patronize.
This summer’s Restaurant Week will be taking place from August 24th to 30th—right around the time Georgetown students will be returning to campus. That makes it the perfect chance to score a high-class goodbye dinner from your parents if they’re dropping you off, or a a great opportunity for a refined reunion with friends you haven’t seen all summer.
Meals during Restaurant Week are three-course, fixed-price affairs. Lunch will run you $20.09 and dinner will be $35.09.
Although Restaurant Week won’t be starting for a while, tables tend to fill up fast, so it’s a good idea to make reservations pretty far in advance. Of the 180 restaurants participating, 14 of them are in Georgetown.
After the jump, we’ve got a map of where to go for gourmet deals near campus!

Starting tomorrow through Sunday the 20th, Georgetown students will be able to enjoy some of D.C.’s finest restaurants without having to pay the equivalent of 3 cases of Coors Lite. You’ll be able to get a three course lunch for $20.08 (Get it? 2008?) and a three course dinner for $30.08.
Over 100 restaurants around D.C. are participating (you can see the whole list here). Among the highlights around Georgetown: 1789, which lets you choose your dinner off the full menu with a $10 surcharge for rack of lamb and Wagyu beef, Mie N Yu with special menus for brunch, lunch, and dinner, and Hook, which is offering lunch only.
To get the scoop from the blogosphere on which restaurants to hit up and which to avoid, check out D.C. Foodie or Chowhound. Bon appetite!
Update: I just called 1789 to make a reservation and they’re full for the entire week. However, they’re extending their restaurant week through the 27th and still have a few openings. I’d call soon though—the earliest I could get on Thursday was 9:30.
