Restaurant Week is coming. Sure, it may seem unnecessary to start thinking about what you’ll want to eat a week or two from now (RW goes from Feb. 4-10), it’s never too early to think economically. While hundreds of area restaurants are offering pre fixe lunches for $20.13 and dinners for $35.13, a certain set packs and extra proverbial punch for the price. We’re talking about places where, under normal conditions, a single entrée is usually $20 to $30 (or more). So, behold! Here are 10 of the best RW deals in DC. Grab a date, work up an appetite and make your reservations through the DC Restaurant week website now because these will fill up fast.
901 New York Ave., NW
This popular downtown haunt is offering three courses of its famous creole inspired creations, including smoked chicken and Andouille sausage gumbo and boudin balls.
Birch & Barley
1337 14th St., NW
This Logan Circle spot will offer dinner only. Besides the great food served up at this New American restaurant, it also offers up a romantic atmosphere.
929 F St., NW
Although it’s called a “chocolate lounge,” this Penn Quarter spot has some pretty tasty savory fare, including bacon mac & cheese and jerk chicken salad. And of course, there’ll be dessert.
3435 Connecticut Ave., NW
Hands down, this might be the best Italian restaurant in DC, and not just because of the food, which is outstanding, but also the atmosphere. Get the optional red wine flight for an extra $13.
1825 14th St., NW
If you like small plates, you’ll love Masa 14, which takes traditional Spanish tapas and gives them one heck of an Asian twist. The hoisin and chipotle glazed salmon is a winner.
1813 Columbia Rd., NW
One of your Scoutmob editor’s favorite eateries in DC, she is ecstatic this Adams Morgan joint has its Octopus Salad on its RW menu. Don’t miss out!
633 D St., NW
Palak Chaat. Palak Chaat. Palak Chaat. Palak Chaat. It’s the most magical appetizer in all the land, we’re hoping if we chant it enough times it’ll spontaneously appear before us. In other words, don’t miss this crispy spinach dish.
1503 17th St., NW
This is definitely the best deal on this list, as dinner generally starts at $80 per person. Obviously, sushi is the best bet here, but anything you order will be awesome.
701 7th St., NW
From the magical mind of Jose Andres comes this Greek, Turkish and Lebanese restaurant that specializes in small plates. Come with a group so you can sample everything.
781 7th St., NW
Latin-Asian fusion may sound strange, but the flavors meld beautifully on your taste buds. We’re particular fans of the achiote hoisin pork arepas.
