From cool, hip joints to modern and sleek restaurants, the DMV region had some of the most exciting menus this winter during D.C. Restaurant Week, which took place from Jan. 13 to Jan. 19. Your route to happiness this month begins with these restaurants, from one who boasts a killer egg and waffle to another who honors a chef’s Turkish heritage. All Restaurant Week participants had fixed menu prices, with breakfast and brunch priced at $22 and dinner priced at $35. Here are eight standout restaurants during D.C. Restaurant Week that you should check out. 

B Too

B Too is the perfect place for brunch with some friends. With its open kitchen and modern style, this eclectic diner on 14th St. serves the most buttery and eggy breakfast options. Their light, fluffy waffles would have anyone running back for more.

Where: 1324 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005

How to get there: Take the Red Line from Tenleytown to Farragut North. Walk down K St. towards the direction of 14th St. Once on 14th, pass Thomas Circle Park and B Too will be on the left. 

Sababa

The word Sababa, Hebrew slang for “great or cool,” is said to express enthusiasm and satisfaction. This restaurant is the ultimate location to experience a true melting pot of distinct cultures and cuisine. It offers tangy and flavorful Middle Eastern-inspired dishes. Sababa creates the ideal savory-sweet mixture with an assortment of small plates that are guaranteed to fill you up.
