February 29, 2012

March signals the coming of restaurant week.

This is the week that makes the winter season worth it if you dine outside of your own kitchen.

From March 18 to 23 and March 25 to 30, Boston’s best restaurants  including many of the major restaurants in the Back Bay, will be offering tasty and price conscious menus for lunch and dinner.

By every measure, what is being offered are incredible bargains.

For instance, a 2-course lunch is just $15.12 and a 3-course lunch is offered for $20.12.

A 3-course dinner is $33.12.

These prices do not include beverage.

Among those restaurants participating in the Back Bay are: 29 Newbury, Abe & Louie’s, Asana, Atlantic Fish, Avila, Bistro du Midi, Brasserie JO, The Café, The Capital Grille, Charley’s, City Table, The Courtyard Restaurant, Da Vinci, Davio’s, The Elephant Walk, Fleming’s Prime Steak House, Forty Dalton, Forum, Haru, Joe’s American Bar and Grill, LaVoile, Legal Sea Foods Copley, Legal Sea Foods Park Square, Lucca Back Bay, Max Brenner, The Met Back Bay, Mistral Bistro, Papa Razzi, Post 390, Samurai Boston, Sel dela Terre Back Bay, Skipjack’s Restaurant, Smith and Wollensky, Sol Azteca, Sorellina, Summer Shack, Tapeo, Top of the Hub, Uni Sashimi Bar, Via Matta, The Wine Cellar and Xhale.

And if you like Italian, then get yourself over to the North End.

“Restaurant week is a winner for everyone in this neighborhood,” said Frank DePasquale, the noted owner of numerous restaurants in the North End.

“Restaurant Week takes our restaurants out of the winter doldrums and helps to fill them with diners. Diners love it because of the wonderful pricing. Restaurants love it because they are fuller than they’d be otherwise,” he added.

Last year, Restaurant Week brought thousands of people into the North End for lunch and dinner and that was during a season with heavy snow and ice.

“This year it should be over the top,” said DePasquale.

“For restaurateurs, restaurant week takes the rough edge off the end of winter slow down and springs most businesses forward to the warmer season that is surely coming,” he added.

Restaurant Week requires that reservations be made early as seating tends to disappear.

Diners are asked not make reservations at more than one restaurant.

Taxes and gratuity are not included in the price during Restaurant Week.

Nearly every major restaurant in the city will be participating in the event.
