Our Mayor Bowser has announced that she will extend DC’s ban on indoor dining until Friday, January 22 (it was expected to lift today 1/15)

The extension isn’t necessarily about Covid numbers, but coincides with the public-safety emergency that’s in effect through Inauguration due to last week’s riots and continued threats on the Capitol.

Other DC-area jurisdictions had also hit pause on indoor dining in December, including Montgomery County and Prince George’s County. Northern Virginia restaurants continue to operate at 50 percent capacity. Under the extension of phase two restrictions, museums in DC will also be closed.

Don’t forget you can still support your local restaurants by ordering takeout!

DC’s Winter Restaurant Week will now begin on January 25th
