The 10 Best Deals You Can Score During DC’s Winter Restaurant Week
For hearty bowls of pasta and some seriously sweet dessert options, head to Alta Strada’s locations in Mount Vernon Square or the Mosaic District in Fairfax, Virginia. As one of the city’s most popular Italian restaurants, it’s only fitting that this neighborhood joint is offering extensive Restaurant Week menus that hit on all the favorites.
The deal: With plenty of options for a large group or some picky eaters, Alta Strada should do the trick. This Restaurant Week menu from chef Michael Schlow is expansive, offering options at every course. Starters include romaine hearts, meatballs, crispy Brussels sprouts, and calamari. For the second course, pick from an array of pastas or pizzas, plus some of the spot’s award-winning chicken or eggplant Parm. Just be sure to save room for dessert as pastry chef Alex Levin is serving up cannolis filled with vanilla ricotta filling, in addition to other Italian classics including tiramisu, bombolonis, and gelato. As an added bonus, Alta Strada is rewarding loyalty with a $40 gift card for anyone who dines three or more times during restaurant week at Alta Strada or its sister restaurants, NAMA Sushi and TICO.
