The Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s 2024 Winter Restaurant Week takes place Monday, Jan. 15, through Sunday, Jan. 21. The annual dining promotion gives diners and restaurants something to commemorate this month with specially priced menus offered throughout DC, suburban Maryland, and Northern Virginia.

To expand menu options available for diners, this year’s participating restaurants will offer multi-course brunch and lunch menus for $25 or $35 per person and multi-course dinner menus for $40, $55, or $65 per person for on-premise dining. Guests are invited to enjoy extended brunch offerings at select participants on Monday, January 15, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Many restaurants will also offer cocktail, wine, and non-alcoholic pairings, giving diners wanting to partake in the program a variety of beverages to choose from.

“Additional menu prices have been added to the promotion to allow more restaurants to participate and have these participants offer more dining options to customers at a variety of price points that fit every budget,” said RAMW President & CEO Shawn Townsend. “Offering menus at a variety of price points helps keep the program sustainable and gives restaurants the chance to offer more memorable culinary experiences for their guests.”
