The D.C. region’s summer restaurant celebration may be over, but in Fairfax City, the festivities are just about to get underway.
The city is expanding its Restaurant Week into a biannual occasion with its first-ever summer program on Monday (Aug. 29). Now in its fifth year, the initiative will build on “the success of the past four years while showcasing the culinary breadth of the city’s dining community,” according to a press release.
Fairfax City’s summer Restaurant Week will run from through Sept. 4. It was planned by a committee of restauranteurs and consultants, and it’s being sponsored by the Fairfax City Economic Development Authority and the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce.
“We are so excited to give folks one more reason to visit Fairfax City in the summer,” Fairfax Mayor David Meyer said in a statement. “…With the Summer rendition of Fairfax City Restaurant Week, we are excited to sweeten the deal and showcase our unparalleled restaurant community while visitors taste, sip, and savor dining that is uniquely Fairfax City.”
Here’s how the program will work:
During the week-long event, participating restaurants will offer three-course prix fixe menus of $20 for lunch/brunch and $35 for dinner per person with couple and family meal options available. In addition to the curated menus, specialty restaurants will offer a Two for $10 Deal providing food lovers the opportunity to further explore Fairfax City’s regionally lauded diverse culinary scene.
The roster of participating restaurants includes 20 eateries that were part of the city’s winter Restaurant Week, including:
Coyote Grille & Cantina, Marumen, The Wine House, The Auld Shebeen, Dolce Vita Italian Kitchen and Wine Bar, Capital Ale House, Patriots Pub & Grill, High Side, Bellissimo Restaurant, Anita’s New Mexico Style Mexican Food, Hamrock’s Restaurant, Earp’s Ordinary, Foundation Coffee, Ruffino’s Spaghetti House, Baku Delicious, PJ Skidoos, Cameron’s Coffee & Chocolate, Cupcakes & Beyond, Kim’s Pho Vietnamese Kitchen and Bar, and Bollywood Bistro
