Winter Restaurant Week Starts This Friday

For the next two weeks, restaurants across Alexandria will offer takeout specials to celebrate a spotlight on local dining establishments.

Restaurant week, a seasonal event run by Visit Alexandria, features 60 restaurants offering $49 takeout dinners for two or, at half those restaurants, $25 takeout dinners for one.

Some of the meal packages include appetizers and a bottle of wine, with the option to add to-go cocktails.

The full list of restaurants is available online — along with links to order from.

Most of the restaurants are located in Old Town and Del Ray, but outliers across the city include Aldo’s Italian Kitchen (2850 Eisenhower Avenue) in the Eisenhower Valley, Hops N Shine (2410 Mount Vernon Avenue) in Arlandria and Cafe Pizzaiolo (1623 Fern Street) near North Ridge.

In the West End, Restaurant Week participants include:
