The twice-annual Alexandria Restaurant Week returns next week with specials available at roughly 70 restaurants across the city.

The new highlight this restaurant week is a new price range compared to the earlier fixed $35 cost.

Restaurant Week is a slight misnomer, with the event scheduled to run from Friday, Aug. 19 to Sunday, Aug. 28.

“For 10 days and two weekends, nearly 70 restaurants in Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a $25, $35 or $45 per person prix fixe dinner for one during Alexandria Restaurant Week, August 19-28, 2022,” Visit Alexandria said in a release. “Special menus are available in-person at all participating restaurants, many with outdoor dining available. The new pricing structure reflects a spectrum of Alexandria’s offerings from fast casual to fine dining.”

Many of the previous restaurants are returning, with the Del Ray pop-up Tiki Bar highlighted as a first-time participant. While the lion’s share of restaurant week locations are in Old Town and Del Ray, other options across the city include City Kitchen (330 South Pickett Street) in the West End and New Orleans-style RT’s Restaurant (3804 Mount Vernon Avenue) in Arlandria.
