And They're Off: D.C. Restaurant Week List Is Up (Updated)

By Julia Beizer

Make your reservations now, kiddos. The official D.C. Summer Restaurant Week list is up for your perusal. Dates are Aug. 24 to 30. As usual, some of the more expensive tables in town (Central, Beck, etc.) aren't participating, but it could be a good time to check out some newcomers. The recently opened Eatonville and the Columbia Firehouse are top choices for me.

Let us know in the comments where you'll be booking tables; I love a good Restaurant Week frenzy. We'll be updating this post with links to our reviews of participating restaurants so that you can browse them before you make reservations.

-- Julia

UPDATE: Sorry folks, as soon as I posted, the list was taken down.

UPDATE AGAIN (4:54 p.m.): So here's the deal. I happened to Google at an opportune moment and found the list or at least part of it. Here's what I scraped from the site before it was taken down. I'll continue to update it as things change. And it appears that they're likely to up until noon on Monday, when the page is supposed to be official. Many of the usual Restaurant Week suspects are not listed here, so I'd be willing to be that they'll join the list next week. Restaurateurs, holler at me at julia(dot)beizer (at) if you need an update.

LAST FRIDAY UPDATE (7:27 p.m): I've pasted the ever-growing list of restaurants after the jump (with links to WaPo reviews, where available). I'll keep updating this post as things change.

MONDAY UPDATE (1:01 p.m.): Now that the list is official, I've updated this blog post with the changes. The official list isn't too much different than what I posted Friday night, but I indicated restaurants I changed or added with an asterisk. Happy dining.

Neither the Open Table or Restaurant Weeks have the participants in order to make reservations. OpenTable has the dates up however.

Neither website for OpenTable or the Official Restaurant week have been updated. The OpenTable site lists the dates but no restaurants to make reservations at. Obviously, I was anxiously awaiting the announcement!

Weird, my opentable isn't even showing the right dates. Hopefully it's updating now!
