70+ Restaurants to Participate August 20-29, 2021

Alexandria, VA—For 10 days and two weekends, more than 70 restaurants in Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a $49 in-person and/or to-go dinner for two during Alexandria Restaurant Week, August 20-29, 2021. Nearly 50 of the participating restaurants will offer solo diners a $25 in-person and/or to-go dinner for one in addition to serving the $49 dinner for two.

More than 40 restaurants will offer the $49 dinner for two and $25 dinner for one both in-person and to-go, including Cedar Knoll, Myron Mixon’s and Royal Restaurant.
