Alexandria Restaurant Week To-Go Dates Announced

60+ Restaurants to Participate January 22 – February 7, 2021

Alexandria, VA—For an extended two-week period, more than 60 restaurants in Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a $49 takeout, delivery or curbside pick-up dinner for two during Alexandria Restaurant Week To-Go, January 22 – February 7, 2021. New this winter, more than half of these restaurants will offer a $25 takeout dinner for one in addition to the $49 for two deal. This expanded offering was created in response to increased interest from single diners during Alexandria’s first Restaurant Week To-Go in August 2020. Guests are encouraged to bring Alexandria Restaurant Week home and enjoy special menus from the comfort of their dining room table, fireplace or couch, through Super Bowl Sunday.

The new to-go model for Alexandria Restaurant Week, which debuted in summer 2020, reflects current customers’ desire to enjoy restaurant meals at home while providing new opportunities to support Alexandria’s community of locally owned restaurants. Alexandria’s first Restaurant Week To-Go was critical in keeping the city’s small business economy energized and essential to preserving a beloved experience of the city for residents and visitors alike as local establishments continue to weather the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

New Alexandria Restaurant Week participants include Barkhaus, Alexandria’s new dog bar; Carlyle neighborhood eatery Pasara Thai and The Alexandrian hotel’s new restaurant King & Rye. Restaurants offering to-go deals for one and two people include Lena’s Wood-Fired Pizza and Tap, RT’s Restaurant, Taqueria Picoso, Whiskey & Oyster, Yunnan by Potomac and more.

Alexandria Restaurant Week showcases the inventiveness of local chefs in neighborhoods throughout the city, including Old Town, Del Ray, Carlyle and Eisenhower, and the West End. From neighborhood favorites to restaurants specializing in international cuisine, guests will savor the flavors of Alexandria's distinctive collection of eateries.

In early January, guests will find a digital flip-book of menus at participating restaurants on www.AlexandriaRestaurantWeek.com.
