DC’s Winter Restaurant Week is now underway and based on some quick research, it appears that there are still quite a few good tables available. I’m guessing the economy might have something to do with it. Just a hunch. But that’s no reason not to take advantage of a good deal when you find one!
Many others have posted on where to go/not go, the best deals, and best service (see here, here, and here), so I stuck with the basics – for the most part. My research was simple. I used OpenTable.com and searched for a table for two between the hours of 6pm and 10pm. Of the restaurants with tables available, I’ve listed what I consider some of the best options (no chains, steakhouses, or tapas).
