A small town girl making the big city home. She loves everything DC, and is slowly introducing her one-year-old to the world of Smithsonians, monuments, cherry blossoms and the DMV. A perfect day in town would include breakfast at Eastern Market (or Founding Farmers), checking out the National Gallery of Art, a burger and/or shake at Good Stuff or sandwich from Taylor Made, the two mile walk around the monuments, and cupcakes from Sprinkles (or Georgetown Cupcake if the line isn't forever long) to go.

2014 DC Restaurant Week

Make your reservations now for January's DC Restaurant Week!

Make your reservations now for January’s DC Restaurant Week!

Have you made your reservations for DC Restaurant week? Beginning this week, the 2014 winter week long foodie fest runs from January 13-19.

It’s nice to check out somewhere everyone’s been raving about without the high dinner tab. Organized by Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington (RAMW), more than 200 restaurants will feature prix fixe menus. Prices are $20.14 for lunch and $35.14 for dinner for three-course meals, excluding tax and gratuity.

Baltimore, Annapolis, Frederick, Howard County and Alexandria will also be hosting restaurant weeks throughout the winter/early spring. Save the dates and make reservations soon if you’re planning to hit up one of the more popular spots.

Some of our favorites have been J&G Steakhouse (super convenient to downtown museums), Filomena (tucked away in Georgetown, you can watch them making fresh pasta in the window). Rosa Mexicano (Penn Quarter) makes some of the best guacamole you will find in the DC area.

DC Restaurant Week is the perfect remedy to the cold (and long) winter days. I hope we’ll be able to get out and sample something delicious during the next week.
