DC Restaurant Week occurs twice a year usually during the slow restaurant season in the winter (usually January) and the late summer (usually August). Now various cities around the DC area are jumping in on the action with their own restaurant weeks, such as Alexandria, VA and Bethesda Chevy Chase , MD. Restaurants are typically slow around the holiday season and in the summertime when people take vacation away from the DC area. Many restaurants welcome Restaurant Week as a way to drum up new business. Summer’s Restaurant Week is coming! See below for the Summer 2010 Restaurant Week dates.
