In case you haven’t already sketched out a plan for Restaurant Week Winter 2011, the three-course fixed-price meal deal for lunch and dinner starts Monday and officially wraps up on Jan. 23. However, a number of restaurants will extend their RW deals through the end of the month. (Young & Hungry will make note of some of those places next week.)

If you’re planning on waltzing into your favorite restaurant next week, that may be a fool’s errand. Be sure to book a reservation. (The good ones are already taken, naturally.) A complete listing of participating restaurants can be found here, or, better yet, pick up this week’s Washington City Paper print edition, where you can find a big Restaurant Week spread on pages 28 and 29.
