While some restaurant weeks seem to entail a lot of travel (hello, Baltimore, we're looking at you), National Harbor, Md., is only minutes away from both downtown D.C and Northern Virginia.
With several retail stores and a 300-acre waterfront, the restaurant scene is a welcome addition.
National Harbor Restaurant "Week" begins March 4 and runs through March 17 -- yes, that's more like 13 days, but who's counting? Participating spots including Rosa Mexicana, Thai Pavilion and Ketchup, offering three-course meal for $20.13 (lunch) and $35.13 (dinner).
National Harbor is accessible from I-95 and I-295 and by water taxi from Georgetown, Mount Vernon and Old Town Alexandria.
