Psst—Good Company has more than doughnuts. “We are very excited, this being our first restaurant week and coinciding with the roll-out of our new menu,” says co-founder Charles Kachadoorian. The Ballston newcomer will be offering a $10 soup-and-sandwich lunch. Or, stop by for dinner, when $25 gets you a small plate and a big plate (e.g. fettuccine with basil pesto and a cherry-tomato sauce, ravioli or ancient grain ragu), paired with house wine or draft beer. Both meals also include a doughnut, of course. // 672 N. Glebe Road, Arlington (Ballston)

“Good French food does not have to be expensive,” said Jacques Imperato, the chef and owner of La Côte d’Or Café. Imperato took over the kitchen in 2016, but says many folks haven’t yet realized the menus have been updated. The Restaurant Week menu includes a three-course brunch or lunch for $22, and a three-course dinner for $35. Save your appetite for mains like seafood crêpes, mussels in a white wine cream sauce with French fries, or beef burgundy with potato gnocchi.  // 6876 Lee Highway, Arlington (East Falls Church)
