The buzz around the Alexandria Restaurant Week is starting. For ten days we’ll experience a celebration of our local chef’s talents as they showcase their creations for the diners that flock to their establishments.
With all of Old Town’s chef driven restaurants, farmers markets, and Ina Garten fans we really are quite the foodie town. And the Restaurant Week deals make for a great excuse to try out a new place, support a tried and true neighborhood fav, or splurge on some fine dining. So put away your Barefoot Contessa cookbooks for a couple weeks and see what chef’s creations are waiting for you about town.
