If you're in Washington, D.C. this week, take advantage of Restaurant Week. Lunch at many of Washington's best restaurants is $20.04, and dinner is $30.04. Prices are for dinner only and do not include beverages, tip, or tax.
Our friend Sweth (who lives in the area and who posted this earlier) notes that those prices are a great deal at some of the participating restaurants, but a "colossal ripoff" at others.
This is the fourth Washington, D.C. Restaurant Week and runs from today through August 1st.
