Here are restaurants to savor during D.C. Summer Restaurant Week

D.C. Summer Restaurant Week launches with 250 restaurants, 50 brunch options

As announced previously, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW) is sponsoring Washington Metropolitan (D.C.) Summer Restaurant Week starting Monday, August 12 through Sunday, August 18. The premier restaurant advocacy group in Washington, D.C. has updated the restaurant week website with additional information and participating restaurants.

There are 250 restaurants participating this year across the DMV. By using the Summer Restaurant Week website, diners can make reservations online and narrow searches by cuisine and geography.

The 2019 D.C. Summer Restaurant Week has something for everybody and prices are $22, $22 and $35 for brunch, lunch and dinner, respectively. It’s a chance to travel the world through the menus of D.C.’s acclaimed restaurants. Expect to enjoy great dishes on August 17-18. As brunch is a “thing” here in D.C., there will be 50 restaurants offering brunch.

Said RAMW, “ Morning meals at restaurants featuring everything from Turkish, American, Indian, and Italian flavors will give diners a taste of metropolitan Washington’s eclectic international dining scene at a great fixed price.”
