Alexandria Restaurant Week 2018

The only bad thing about Alexandria Restaurant Week is that trying every single restaurant offering lunch and dinner specials between January 26th and February 4th isn’t really feasible. First of all, that would be expensive. Second, there aren’t that many lunches and dinners between January 26th and February 4th — but oh, how we wish there were.

At The Patterson Group, Restaurant Week feels like a holiday. We look forward to it every winter and spend far too much time discussing where we’ll go. A lot goes into the decision of what’s worth the $35 three-course menu: you want to find a place where you’d enjoy getting an app, entrée, and dessert, and a place where you wouldn’t get out spending under $35 on a regular night so that it really feels like a deal.

Then you have to find the perfect companions: people who enjoy food as much as you do and appreciate the details, from savoring the artfulness of the presentation to speculating over why the restaurants are featuring particular items on special menus. This is a science, folks.

You can see all of the menus by clicking the Menu Book below:


And here are some of our top choices this time around:

  • Café 44 | see pages 5-6 for brunch and lunch options (and read our recent Restaurant Report here)
