From Visit Alexandria VA:

Alexandria Summer Restaurant Week returns, August 19-28, 2011. 62 restaurants throughout the city will feature a $35 prix-fixe three-course dinner or $35 dinner for two. Savor the flavors of Alexandria’s distinctive collection of eateries, from fine dining establishments to casual neighborhood favorites, with special offers available exclusively during this event.

Restaurant Week menus and online reservations are available on VisitAlexandriaVA.com. Food lovers can feast their eyes on the full list of participants, which includes OpenTable Diners’ Choice Winners La Bergerie, A la Lucia, Tempo, the Grille at Morrison House, and the Wharf, plus restaurants from Washingtonian ‘Best’ lists, including Cheesetique, Bastille, Jackson 20, and Grape + Bean.

With more than two dozen participating restaurants offering outdoor dining, Alexandria is a lovely setting to dine alfresco and bask in the glow of late summer evenings. Paired with a stroll through the neighborhood and a variety of nightlife choices, a dinner out becomes a whole night to remember.

This 10-day event enables residents and visitors to experience Alexandria’s diversity of restaurant choices and taste the culinary inventiveness of local chefs. The August 2011 event is the second time Alexandria Restaurant Week has been offered in the summer. Alexandria Restaurant Week was launched in 2009 and has been a hit with patrons and restaurateurs ever since. The Alexandria Convention & Visitors Association coordinates and markets the event, which is free for participating restaurants. In addition to serving as an economic driver for Alexandria restaurants, Alexandria Restaurant Week builds the Alexandria brand as it helps the city to become known as a culinary destination.
