DC Restaurant Week Best Bets Neighborhood Guide

As your friendly neighborhood DC Restaurant Week expert, this week I’ve already posted about this year’s newcomers, restaurants offering live music, a listing of participating restaurants menus and extensions (still growing), and of course, my Top 20 Picks. While most hardcore foodies know the supremo spots in the area, some don’t always know the good neighborhood joints where so many people are quietly devoted. It’s possible that many of your most frequented spots are not participating in DC Restaurant Week, so below is a short list of some of my “Best Bets” for DC Restaurant Week by neighborhood. Disclaimer: I admit that there are a lot of neighborhood gems that I have never visited and thereby rely on folks like yourself who will share their finds. So, feel free to chime in about your faves.

Restaurants included in the DC Restaurant Week Top 20 Picks are marked with an *
