Winter Restaurant Week Is Happening Now

The federal government remains closed due to snow, but Winter Restaurant Week officially launches today—a happy coincidence for anyone looking to take advantage of lunchtime promotions. Over 100 restaurants in the Washington area serve $22 set lunches and $35 dinners through February 3, while others extend the deals further into the month.*

Weather caused a slight change in the schedule: UberEats won’t deliver Restaurant Week specials on Monday, but plans to resume Tuesday through Friday with dishes like DBGB‘s cheeseburger ($15) or spaghetti bolognese from Poste ($12). It’s also a good idea to call your restaurant of choice before venturing into the cold; a few may still be closed or experiencing delays from the storm.

Need help deciding where to eat? We have a list of our current 100 Very Best Restaurants who’re participating in Restaurant Week, as well as another roundup of our top dining picks.

*This post has been updated. Restaurant Week is officially extended to February 3 due to the winter storm.
