Alexandria Restaurant Week

Alexandria hosts its own Winter Restaurant Week towards the end of February. From February 17 - 26, over 70 restaurants in Alexandria’s hottest neighborhoods will have incredible lunch and dinner specials. The restaurants range from casual to fine dining, and are dotted throughout Alexandria, so this now is the time to visit that restaurant you’ve been eyeing, or to make an evening of checking out a new-to-you neighborhood.

Just off the main drag of King Street in Old Town West, a still transitioning neighborhood, Bastille sits on the corner past a block of automotive shops and across from a grassy area. The bar area is dark and hushed, while the dining room is bright and sleek. The service is attentive and well-paced for a long meal. The wine list is substantial  and exciting for any oenophile to peruse and sample some gems from France. The Restaurant Week menu features French classics, such as escargots, moules and magret de canard. Every single bit will be savored.

sushi bar 
In the hip neighborhood of Del Ray, sushi bar is the go-to for inventive yet comforting sushi. sushi bar is a dark lounge, and patrons are asked to leave children at home, so go here for an intimate, romantic evening. The sushi and sashimi are served tapas-style, encouraging the sharing of dishes - what is more cozy than this? The sake menu is one of the most exquisite we’ve seen - give the lychee infused sake a taste!

The Eisenhower neighborhood has sprouted in the last few years, namely due to the Patent and Trademark Office’s transfer there a decade ago. Now Eisenhower is a veritable neighborhood with condo and apartment buildings, high end hotels and trendy eateries. One of our favorites is the aptly named Trademark. Inspired by innovators and inventors who dare to rethink the standard, Trademark serves up a menu that is classic in origin, yet tweaked into something completely new and interesting.
