DC on Heels and Dining in DC are teaming up for the ultimate Restaurant Week giveaway!
Enter to win one of five $75 dining gift certificates to some of the hottest eateries in town -- that's TWICE the cost of a three-course dinner during Restaurant Week!
DC Restaurant Week, sponsored by Destination DC and the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington, occurs twice a year when restaurants are typically slow (usually in January and then again in late summer, usually August).
Many restaurants welcome Restaurant Week as a way to drum up new business, especially from savvy foodies who jump at the chance to get a great deal at a top DC area restaurant.
"There's no better time than Restaurant Week to see what the D.C. culinary scene has to offer," said Elliott Ferguson, president & CEO of Washington's tourism agency, Destination DC.
Participating restaurants offer a special prix-fixe menu for the entire week. Lunch is $20.10 for three courses and dinner, three courses as well, is $35.10 (prices do not include tax or gratuity). In addition, some restaurants extend the promotion for up to an entire month.
