"We are lucky to have some of the best restaurants in the country right here in DC and across the Metropolitan region and Restaurant Week is such a great way to get to know some new places and revisit great ones,” said Kathy E. Hollinger, President and CEO of the RAMW. “Book your tables today and experience so many talented chefs participating and great perks and promotions from our sponsors too."
