Poll: Have you ever participated in Alexandria Restaurant Week?

The twice-annual Alexandria Restaurant Week starts next Friday with some new options on the list of restaurants.

Restaurant week’s schtick is that each of the restaurants offers $35 per-person meals at various restaurants around the city, which is still a bit much for the $10-$20 restaurant-goers among us, but is discount at many of the restaurants in question.

Visit Alexandria highlighted BARCA Pier and Wine Bar as a new participant. The riverside restaurant opened in March and features Mediterranean dishes and drinks. Other new restaurants include Thai Signature, The Rub Chicken and Beer and St. Elmo’s Coffee Pub.
