DC Summer Restaurant Week returns in August

Takeout, family-meal options added in 2020

DC Summer Restaurant Week, organized by the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW), will take place August 17-30. This year, restaurants have expanded the celebration to include a variety of options. Customers can choose from a to-go program, family-style meals and cocktail and wine pairings. Menu selections are priced from $35 to $55 per person.

With expanded, takeout options available for curbside pickup, there’s something for every taste and budget. In addition, participating restaurants will offer family meals at reasonable prices. Amid the crisis, RAMW has made it easier to dig into great restaurant food with the choice of in-restaurant dining or pickup.

Restaurant Week pricing

The first tier of pricing is set at $35, $60 and $130 for 1, 2 and 4 people, respectively. Second tier pricing is set at $55, $100 and $210. With a diverse collection of restaurants participating, foodies and food lovers across Metropolitan Washington will be able to take advantage of an eclectic mix of American and global cuisines & flavors. At some eateries, brunch and lunch selections for $22 per person will be available.

To make it easier for restaurants to participate in Summer Restaurant Week, RAMW partners Events DC and JBG Smith have stepped in to cover participation fees for restaurants.

“Our restaurant operators have been so incredibly creative during this unexpected time, and they continue to be every day,” says Kathy E. Hollinger, president and chief executive of RAMW. “This promotion, and its new options, really shines a light on that creativity.”
