The Ultimate Restaurant Week Give-a-way: Deal or No Deal Contest!

Enter to win before Aug. 27th!

Dining in DC and DC on Heels are teaming up for the Ultimate Restaurant Week give-a-away! If you’re dining out for Restaurant Week you won’t want to miss this! Enter to win one of five $75 dining gift certificates! Twice the cost of a Restaurant Week 3-course dinner!

DC Restaurant Week, sponsored by Destination DC and the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW), occurs twice a year when restaurants are typically slow in winter, usually January and in the late summer, usually August. Many restaurants welcome Restaurant Week as a way to drum up new business and Washingtonians, especially the savvy foodies, jump at the chance to get a great deal at a top DC area restaurant. Elliott Ferguson, President & CEO of Washington’s tourism agency, Destination DC said, “There’s no better time than Restaurant Week to see what the D.C. culinary scene has to offer.”

Participating restaurants offer a special three course prix-fixe menu for the entire week. Lunch is 3 courses for $20.10 and Dinner is 3 courses for $35.10 (prices do not include tax or gratuity.) Some restaurants offer their entire menu while some extend the promotion up to an entire month. So is DC Restaurant Week really a deal? You tell us!
