Arlington Restaurant Week will be held from Monday, Oct. 21 through Monday, Oct. 28. This is the first Restaurant Week event, hosted by the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, dedicated specifically to the restaurant scene in Arlington County. Previously, the Arlington Chamber partnered with regional Chambers to produce the Northern Virginia Restaurant Week. Building off the success of that event, the Chamber is looking forward to using its strong connections to the Arlington restaurant community to showcase the many vibrant and diverse restaurants within the county's 26 square miles.
Through this event, diners will enjoy some of the best food the area has to offer at special prices. This is a great opportunity for participants to take the week to explore the diverse restaurant scene in Arlington and find a new go-to place for dining out. To promote locally to Arlington residents, business professionals, as well as tourists, the event's premier partner, StayArlington, will be providing information about Arlington Restaurant Week before and during the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, October 27.
The goal of Arlington Restaurant Week is to help local restaurants gain exposure through extensive media promotion and to attract new patrons through experiencing their food. This event runs differently from your average Restaurant Week in that it is open to all restaurants from fast-casual spots to five-star dining establishments. Restaurants are able to pick a price point that fits their restaurant's style and market their Restaurant Week specials on the Chamber's website.
"The Chamber is thrilled to celebrate and showcase the diverse restaurant scene in Arlington through hosting the first Restaurant Week event specifically for the Arlington community said Kate Bates, President & CEO of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce. "This event offers participants the opportunity to try a variety of dining experiences and culinary options at discounted rates, and in return, restaurants gain exposure and are able to expand their customer base. We are proud to support the entire local restaurant community through this event."
