For 10 days and two weekends, more than 70 restaurants in Alexandria, Virginia, will offer a $49 in-person and/or to-go dinner for two during Alexandria Restaurant Week, August 20-29, 2021. Nearly 50 of the participating restaurants will offer solo diners a $25 in-person and/or to-go dinner for one in addition to serving the $49 dinner for two. This dinner-for-one offering was created during Alexandria Restaurant Week To-Go in January 2021 in response to increased interest from single diners during the pandemic. The online menu book makes it easy to browse delicious selections from dozens of Alexandria eateries and enjoy special menus in-person or from the comfort of your own home.

New Alexandria Restaurant Week participants include Ada’s on the River, a new riverside eatery in Old Town built around a custom wood-burning oven; KungFu Kitchen, known for its Northern-style authentic Chinese food in the West End and Sisters Thai and the Magnolia Dessert Bar, a new dynamic restaurant duo in Old Town North’s EDENS development serving Thai specialties. More than 40 restaurants will offer the $49 dinner for two and $25 dinner for one both in-person and to-go, including Cedar Knoll, Myron Mixon’s and Royal Restaurant.

Alexandria Restaurant Week showcases the inventiveness of local chefs in neighborhoods throughout the city, including Old Town, Del Ray, Carlyle and Eisenhower, and the West End. From neighborhood favorites to restaurants specializing in international cuisine, guests will savor the flavors of Alexandria's distinctive collection of eateries.
