Update: Get Details on Restaurant Week Menus 

Ladies and gentlemen, start your OpenTable clicking. Today, the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington announced the dates and details for DC’s next Restaurant Week, which will take place from August 11 to August 17. That's when you can score a three-course lunch for $20.08 and a three-course dinner for $35.08 (a $5 jump from last year) at nearly 200 participating restaurants.

On the list this summer are Hook, Poste, Charlie Palmer Steak, Equinox, Farrah Olivia, PS7’s, the Oval Room, the Prime Rib, and Vermilion. Conspicuously absent from this round of Restaurant Week is the newly relocated Corduroy, which was known for giving RW diners full run of their regular menu. The best deals have always tended to be at the spots that let diners do just that. In the past, these have included Circle Bistro, Kinkead’s, Ceiba, Mendocino Grille, Tabard Inn, Bistro Bis, and Vidalia

So make those reservations fast! But check back here on the Best Bites Blog too—we’ll have more details in the coming days on what each restaurant is offering.
