This week is the peak of restaurant weeks for the season, with both the Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week extended to this week and Alexandria Restaurant Week in full swing.

The Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week has been extended through the end of this week, thanks to the snowy weather last week, giving locals another chance to check out the seven Alexandria locations participating. Restaurant Week involves restaurants having special menus at fixed prices: $25 or $35 for lunch or brunch and $40, $55 or $65 for dinner — which still isn’t exactly cheap, but in some cases is saving at certain local restaurants, and is designed to be an approachable introduction to these restaurants.

The regional restaurant week includes restaurants from across Northern Virginia, Maryland and D.C. The Alexandria restaurants participating are:

Alexandria, meanwhile, has it’s own Alexandria Restaurant Week starting last Friday and running through Sunday, Jan. 28.

Over 70 restaurants are participating in Alexandria Restaurant Week, from Old Town to the West End, with prix fixe dinners at $30, $40 and $50.

A full list of participating restaurants in Alexandria Restaurant Week is available online.
