Deals: A Jumpstart on Restaurant Week

A deal with a view: Order the $20.10 lunch menu all month at 2941. The lush Falls Church setting is a bonus.

Why wait until the official start of summer Restaurant Week, Aug. 16, when you can take advantage of $35.10 dinners and $20.10 lunches now, without the crowds?

Already offering Restaurant Week deals are 2941 (lunch only), Dino (with extras bites like a cold soup shooter to start and housemade truffles to finish), Grillfish, Logan Tavern, Nage and The Heights. And don't forget, 1789 offers its $35 summer three-course deal through Sept. 15 — get the summer coupon here.
