DC Restaurant Week Restaurants Ranked 100′s Very Best

As you’ve noticed this year, Dining in DC has really stepped it up a notch for the upcoming DC Restaurant Week, January 9-15, 2012 by offering all new features. Have you checked out my postings on newcomers, live music or entertainment, the Best Bets neighborhood guide, and of course, my Top 20 Picks? And No, I’m not going to stop there. I know that foodies love good food and even better, at a great value, so below is a listing of all DC Restaurant Week participating restaurants that are also ranked on the coveted Washingtonian’s 100 Very Best List. If they are on this list, then I am pretty sure you’re going to get the most bang for your buck.

It’s unfortunate that many of DC’s top restaurants are not participating this year, such as Blue Duck Tavern, Bourbun Steak, 15Ria, Corduroy, and more. Sounds like there’s a story behind that.
