Wintertime in Washington, D.C. is even more fabulous than spring and cherry blossoms. You know why? Because of Winter RAMW Washington, D.C. Restaurant Week! From January 13-19, you can enjoy $20.14 lunches and $35.14 dinners at the Capital’s best restaurants. The menus will fill your belly (and then some), while also keeping the contents of your wallet relatively in tact.

For example, at Acadiana, sandwiched between your choice of a selection of appetizers (Turtle soup! Gumbo!) and desserts (Lemon bars! Pumpkin bread pudding!), diners can order any entree (with a modest $9 additional charge for the jumbo lump crabcakes and the ribeye steak entrees).

At Chef Geoff’s-Downtown, the entire menu is up for grabs. Create your own restaurant week three-course meal, which can include anything from Gouda-stuffed risotto balls to slow and low beef short ribs — plus dessert.

Jaleo DC is offering up a whopping five courses, including dessert, for their $35.14 dinners. Choices include bacon-wrapped dates, savory carrot soup, pork loin with roasted onion and ‘Valdeón’ blue cheese sauce, and pan con chocolate, among many others.

Over at The Oval Room, dining selections include duck confit tater tots (Why have I never had these?!), roasted loin of heritage pork, and a chocolate espresso torte. Plus, it’s a power-lunch spot.

 Zaytinya is also serving up five fun courses, from kibbeh nayeh and keftedes kapama, to seared halloumi and Turkish delight (Does Turkish delight remind anyone else of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe or is that just me?).

Lunch and dinner offerings vary. View menus here. Reservations fill up rather swiftly, so book early and often. Happy dining, DC foodies!
