We’re halfway through D.C.’s beloved Summer Restaurant Week! And with these hard-to-beat prices—lunch and brunch at $25 per person and dinners ranging from $40-$55 per person—offering you the chance to dine in (or out!) at some of D.C.’s best restaurants, you may feel overwhelmed searching through the sheer number of restaurants involved to make your picks! Thankfully, we’ve narrowed it down to five top choices that are offering the best deals and mouth-watering menus:
Just over a year after opening, Dauphine’s remains a hotspot in the District. And while its dinner offerings are always a highlight, Summer Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to enjoy all the best its brunch has to offer! Not the bottomless mimosa brunch most imbibe in, this indulgent three-course brunch gives you the best of sweet and savory (from banana foster yogurt to fried fish and grits) that this New Orleans-influenced restaurant has to boast—and for just $25 per person!
Who says lunch can’t be three courses? Take an extra long break today! Both Boqueria in Dupont Circle and Penn Quarter are offering Spanish classics with a modern flare, including dessert, for just $25 per person. After a delectable mouthful of patatas bravas and albondigas you won’t want to head back to work!
Immigrant Food at the White House (Dinner)
If you want to make Restaurant Week into a delightful date night, then Immigrant Food at the White House has you covered! With a unique and delicious $70 dinner for two, you and that special someone can enjoy an appetizer, two entrees, a shared dessert, and a bottle of white or red wine (an extra fee for rose or champagne!). Now that’s hard to beat! Beware—this is only available at the White House location and only takes walk-ins!
Dolce Vita (Dinner)
This Mediterranean eatery has been making waves since its debut in November 2021, and now is the perfect time to taste what the hype is all about! With both a $40 and a $55 per person dinner menu, you can taste your way through this three-course feast for the best the restaurant has to offer for a fraction of a usual meal’s price!
Filomena Ristorante (Dinner)
Never skimping on flavors or portions, Filomena is a D.C. staple for a reason! Restaurant Week offers a chance to indulge in this Georgetown favorite. Offering two dinner menus, one for $40 and the other $55 per person, each comes with an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, but the $55 menu offers more choices so be sure to check both!
