First off – apologies for the short absence! Been traveling on and off for a few weeks…but I’m back in the swing of things! So let’s begin!
Twice a year, the City of Boston hosts Restaurant Week! This is pretty much what it sounds like – restaurants around Boston offer a 2- or 3-course meal for a set price, giving locals a chance to sample food at some of the finest shops in town for cheap! With such an avid restaurant scene, this event is a great way to try some of the world’s best without dropping an entire paycheck. What’s even better is that Restaurant Week is actually more like two weeks since it goes from March 6-11 and March 13-18. Additionally, most of the restaurants have lunch and dinner menu options.
The main newbie pointer for this whole shindig? Make reservations! I’ve heard that most of these establishments are wall-to-wall with people, so it’s best to expect a crowd. Also, understand that sometimes the food is not always at it’s best quality. With so many people, these restaurants often don’t break out the “big guns” for this event but you should at least be able to walk away with an idea of whether it’s worth the dough (yes, the pun was intentional).
Me? I haven’t gotten a chance to partake in the deliciousness yet but I do have lunch reservations next week and am planning on some other choice meals before that! My biggest problem is figuring out where to go! Of course, I will track my adventures here…so stay tuned! And if you have suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments below!!
