Visit Alexandria Extends ‘Restaurant Week’ to Restaurant Fortnight

After some initial success, Visit Alexandria has announced the ongoing Restaurant Week deals will be extended for an additional week.

Currently, over 60 restaurants across the city are offering takeout, delivery, or curbside pickup meals-for-two at $49. A full list of participating restaurants is available online.

“The online menu book makes it easy to browse delicious selections from dozens of Alexandria eateries,” Visit Alexandria said in a press release. “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.”

Visit Alexandria said in the press release that the to-go model emphasized in this Restaurant Week is designed with a preference towards eating at home over dining in local restaurants while COVID-19 is still present in Alexandria.

The extension is also an effort to give some struggling local businesses a little boost.

“The success of Alexandria’s independent restaurant scene is critical to the city’s small business economy and essential to preserving a beloved experience of the city for residents and visitors alike as these local establishments weather the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Visit Alexandria said.
