BeDowntown Specials

To help encourage residents, workers, and visitors to explore Downtown’s diverse landscape of coffee shops, restaurants, and local businesses, several local coffee shops and restaurants will offer “Be Downtown Specials” throughout February and March.

As part of the Be Downtown Specials, over 40 restaurants across Downtown DC, with the support of the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington (RAMW), will offer a variety of morning, lunch, and happy hour specials. Specials will run through March 31 and allow residents, visitors, and workers to explore the Downtown DC dining scene.
