Everyone loves a dining deal, and August is a good time to find one in the D.C. area.

Alexandria Restaurant Week started Thursday and runs through Sunday, Aug. 27.

Dozens of restaurants are offering prix-fixe dinners for $25, $35 or $45. Here’s the menu book showing your options from upscale dining to pizza night takeout.

Some deals that caught our eye were at waterfront restaurants Blackwall Hitch, Chart House and Jula’s on the Potomac. Vermillion is another high-end spot worth checking out.
