It’s Restaurant Week and that fact alone is getting me through this chilly Monday.We’re eager to know: Where are your Restaurant Week reservations?

This week, I’m sampling the fare at Jaleo, which has been on my must-try list for some time now. It’s one of over 200 restaurants offering price-fixed lunches and dinners this week (lunch is $20.12 per person; dinner is $35.12 per person). It’s also one of several local spots that have extended their Restaurant Week menus through Jan. 22.

If you’ve already taken advantage of Restaurant Week deals at lunch, tell us in the comments where you ate and what you thought of your meal. And iPhone users, as you hit the chopping block, be sure to have your camera at the ready. Going Out Guide is asking readers to send in Instagram shots of their meals using the hash tag #DishDC.
