We’re already half way through DC’s Summer Restaurant Week, but there are plenty of places serving their $22 lunches and $35 dinners well beyond the Sunday deadline. While it’s impossible to guarantee quality, extensions can be a positive sign—few restaurants would want to half-ass Restaurant Week and draw it out longer than necessary.
