DC Restaurant Week 2012 announced!

I have been preparing for months with all of my fancy schmany spreadsheets, but all you have to do is mark your calendars and get ready. DC Restaurant Week 2012 is coming!

The official dates January 9-15, 2012 have been announced. Make your reservations, now! This year, Dining in DC will offer all new Restaurant Week features that you are going to love. Check out my postings on newcomers, live music or entertainment, Best Bets neighborhood guide, and of course, my Top 20 Picks. I know that foodies love good food and even better, at a great value, so stay tuned for tips, special notes on menus, and the beloved list of extensions.

Some of the hottest new restaurants will participate this winter so be sure to make your reservations early! See the official DC Restaurant Week page for dates, participating restaurants, menus, and to make reservations. In the event that various restaurants choose to participate in the promotion, but do not use Opentable.com, I will post their menus here.

Prices are as follows for 2012: Lunch (3 courses $20.12); Dinner (3 courses $35.12) both not including tip and gratuity. For more information: RW Tips and how to get the most bang for your buck and Summer 2011 Top 10 RW Picks.

Remember: Restaurants that offer their full menus are considered the best deal. The restaurants that already offer prix fixe menus or pre-theatre menus all year-long, you can take advantage of anytime. In addition, restaurants that offers any small-plates/tapas/mezze, are all great, but already generally offer good deals year-round. Some restaurants offer only limited selections, or include various surcharges (sometimes called supplemental fees) for some of their better dishes – these should be avoided.
