Restaurant Week Returns With New Options and Takeout Focus

Alexandria’s Restaurant Week is back, though in the takeout and delivery format that many restaurants have had to adapt to during the pandemic.

From this Friday, Aug. 21, to Sunday Aug. 30, over 60 restaurants in Alexandria will offer a $49 takeout, delivery, or curbside pick-up dinner for two. The event, which started in 2009, is being rebranded as Alexandria Restaurant Week To-Go.

“This year, guests are encouraged to bring Alexandria Restaurant Week home and enjoy special menus from the comfort of their dining room table, porch or couch,” Visit Alexandria said on a listing for the event. “The online menu book makes it easy to browse delicious selections from dozens of Alexandria eateries. No menu offering is the same — from appetizer, entrée and bottle of wine packages to three-course meals for two with mouth-watering desserts plus add-on options of cocktails to-go, there is undoubtedly a menu suited to everyone.”

Many old favorites are returning, but Visit Alexandria said this year features some new additions, like:

“Many participating restaurants, including Cheesetique, Spice Kraft Indian Bistro, Taqueria Picoso and Yunnan By Potomac Noodle House, have provided free meals to frontline hospital workers, first responders and neighbors affected by the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the past few months,” Visit Alexandria said. “Through Alexandria Restaurant Week To-Go, locals and visitors alike can lend their thanks to the locally owned restaurants that have provided relief throughout the community even during their own business hardships.”

A full list of restaurants is available online.
