One of the great pleasures in life is enjoying delicious food with family and friends. I love sharing small plates at places like The Wine Kitchen, indulging in fried green tomatoes at Lightfoot Restaurant or listening to live music while savoring BBQ at Smokehouse Live.

We are lucky to have a robust dining scene in Loudoun where the food scene is as unique as the venues. Chefs are creating innovative dishes and sourcing from local farms to create mouth-watering meals for guests.

This week, you have the chance to experience creative menus from numerous Loudoun restaurants participating in Northern Virginia Restaurant Week.  The Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William and Greater Reston chambers of commerce have partnered with the Virginia Restaurant Lodging & Travel Association to create this week-long edible experience that showcases everything from fine dining to fast casual.

Below is a list of Loudoun restaurants participating through March 13. Since it is 2016, each restaurant's pre-fixed menu will be offered for a special price ending in 16. Grab a reservation today and share your dining experience with us using #LoveLoudoun and #NoVaRestaurantWeek.
