Over 70 restaurants city-wide are planning to host special deals on meals for the biannual Restaurant Week.

The local event is organized by Visit Alexandria and features meal specials at restaurants across the city — though most of them are in Old Town and Del Ray.

There are a few restaurants highlighted in the city’s west end: like Clyde’s at Mark Center (1700 N Beauregard Street) and City Kitchen (330 S Pickett Street) near the former Landmark Mall.

The event is scheduled to start tomorrow (Friday) and run until Sunday, Aug. 29.

According to the Visit Alexandria website:

Enjoy Alexandria Restaurant Week from August 20 to 29, 2021 and show your support for the city’s large community of locally owned restaurants. For 10 days and two weekends, more than 70 restaurants in Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a $49 in-person and/or to-go dinner for two. Nearly 50 of the participating restaurants will offer solo diners a $25 in-person and/or to-go dinner for one in addition to serving the $49 dinner for two.

Restaurant Week first launched in 2009. A press release from Visit Alexandria noted that the dinner-for-one option was added during the Winter Restaurant Week due to increased interest from single diners during the pandemic.

A full list of participating restaurants is available online.
