During Turkish Restaurant Week, restaurants in District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia will offer specialties for more than 2 weeks.

This year, the 10th edition of the annual event will not be limited to one week and will run through October 25, during which the Turkish restaurants will offer all sorts of Turkish culinary arts, and delicacies for foodies.

Turkish Restaurant Week is an annual celebration of Turkish cuisine organized by the American-Turkish Association of Washington DC (ATA-DC).

The participating restaurants include Istanbul Grill and Meze restaurants: Agora DC, Washington, DC (pictured above), Café Divan, Washington, DC, Ottoman Taverna, Washington, DC and Angelico La Pizzeria Fairfax, Fairfax, VA, just to name a few. Before you go, check their website for the latest list of restaurants and enjoy your meal.

Some of the restaurants have a very comprehensive wine list which has received numerous awards. So, if you like Turkish cuisine, one of the most diverse and delicious in the culinary world, great wine and nice atmosphere, you won't be disappointed.

Since this is an indoor event, during a meal it's better not to talk because of this stupid virus and after you finish eating just put a mask on and you should be good, life must go on, enjoy your time with friends.

Diners can enjoy rich and authentic cuisine in a special brunch and three-course prix fixe lunch – both for $22 – or a three-course prix fixe dinner for $35 or $55. Special priced family-style TO-GO dinner meals will be available ($35 dinner menu / 2 for $60 or 4 for $130 OR $55 dinner menu / 2 for $100 or 4 for $210). These special rates will not cover tax, gratuity, and beverages.

You can also share your experience and get a $50 Gift Card from your favorite Turkish restaurants by posting an Instagram photo during DC Turkish Restaurant Week (Oct 9-25).
