Explore the D.C. food scene through mouth-watering deals, only through February 7!
After changing the date to account for D.C.'s state of emergency, Metropolitan Washington Restaurant Week is back on track for January 25, and we can hardly contain ourselves! For two weeks, restaurants in the District and NoVa will offer up unbeatable meal deals for carryout between $22, $35, and $55. With multiple-course menus covering brunch, lunch, and dinner, it's the perfect time to hit up a trusted favorite or try something completely new.
D.C. is a culturally diverse city, and the food represents that—residents can partake in cuisines ranging from Italian and French to Greek Meditteranean. While all the participating restaurants are undoubtedly delicious, we realize time is limited, and maybe even more so, the room in our stomachs. As an appetizer of things to come, here are just a few of the highlights:

The barbecue joint HalfSmoke has a three-course menu featuring fried green tomatoes, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and a fudgy chocolate brownie for dessert. Wash it down with the Smoked Old Fashion cocktail.
La Cote d'Or Cafe in Arlington offers French cuisine reminiscent of the Burgundy region, and it's downright gourmet. Try $22 breakfast options such as the traditional Eggs Benedict or savory mushroom crepes. Their Croque Madame sandwich is pure brunch bliss; it comes with ham, cheese, and a fried egg on top, which is just (chef's kiss).

Of course, we can't forget the foodie phenomenon that is Founding Farmers. For RW, their $22 lunch and $35 dinner lets customers pick two courses and a dessert of their choice within a set price range. For $12 extra, cap off the meal with a specialty cocktail. The delightfully-named 'Honey Bee' includes Barenjager, Beyla's Honey, lime, and vodka from the restaurant's distillery!
Washington Restaurant Week runs from January 25 to February 7, with orders available for pick-up or delivery. In addition to the carryout deals listed above, bundles are available for diners in groups of 2 and 4 for further discounts (the $35 dinner menu lets 2 dine for $60). Many of the restaurants have provided their menus, which you can check out here.
For transportation, drivers can reserve parking through Parking Panda to make the experience more convenient. We recommend snagging your spot in advance!
