If you've only just shoveled yourself out of Snowzilla, you'll be happy to learn that you haven't missed Restaurant Week after all. RAMW — which organizes the weeklong deal of three-course lunches ($22) and dinners ($35) — has officially extended Restaurant Week through February 3. In response to the blizzard, some restaurants are even going beyond that. Check out the following list of some of those places — plus a few dish options to whet your appetite: 

Through February 5:

Fiola and Fiola Mare are offering the deal during lunch only. Try the burrata and arctic char at Fiola or the butternut cappuccino and olive oil–poached branzino filet at Fiola Mare. Sister restaurant Casa Luca is participating for lunch and dinner, and also extending through February 5 (photo by Christopher Anderson).

Through February 6:

Liberty Tavern and Lyon Hall in Arlington will both offer the entire menu for Restaurant Week, with dishes like gnocchi draped in lamb ragu available on the Liberty Tavern dinner menu and entrees like grilled loup de mer and a lobster roll available for dinner at Lyon Hall.

-Central Michel Richard's famous fried chicken (pictured above) and burger are both on the Restaurant Week menu. 

-Water & Wall is offering a soup or salad plus three dim sum dishes and dessert for lunch and the more traditional three-course offering for dinner, which includes such entrees as duck risotto and pumpkin curry. 

-Sister restaurants Lincoln and Teddy & The Bully Bar both offer Restaurant Week options for lunch and dinner — but with the added bonus of four courses at each place for dinner rather than three.  

Through February 7:

-Roofers Union is serving such dishes as pan-seared octopus, a duo of housemade sausages and the dessert chef Marjorie Meek-Bradley made famous on this season of Top Chef. She's calling that dessert — made with Greek yogurt mousse, pistachio sponge cake and saffron-poached oranges — Breaking the Curse.

-Michael Schlow's restaurants, Tico and The Riggsby, are offering dinner and lunch, respectively. You'll find dishes like the mussels marinière and the delicious burger (pictured at top) on The Riggsby's lunch menu, and four courses of options at Tico's dinner, including the mac 'n' cheese pictured above (photo by Christopher Anderson).

-All of Richard Sandoval's DC restaurants — Ambar, El Centro D.F. (14th Street NW and Georgetown), ZengoMasa 14 and Toro Toro — have extended through February 7. 

-And our locally based big-time restaurateur, chef José Andrés, has extended through Super Bowl Sunday at his restaurants: Jaleo (DC, Crystal City, Bethesda), China ChilcanoOyamelZaytinya and America Eats Tavern.

Through February 11:

-Dino's Grotto offers the entire menu for its three-course dinner, plus a few freebies like a deviled egg to start and a glass of house 'cello with dessert.
