Here are some of the other restaurants slated to participate:

Agua 301 (301 Water St. SE)

Ambar (523 8th St. SE)

Arsenal at Bluejacket (300 Tingey St. SE)

But diner beware, Restaurant Week isn’t necessarily a good deal. Washington City Paper found this time last year that prix fixe meals at some restaurants actually cost more than ordering a la carte.
