Restaurant Week begins August 10th. In case you need a refresher… this is an event that occurs in Boston two times a year, where restaurants offer 3-course lunches for $20.08 and 3-course dinners for $33.08. It’s a great opportunity to try new restaurants for those on a tighter budget.

Quickly scanning the list, my initial recommendations include:
DaVinci in the South End
Dante in Cambridge
Eastern Standard in Kenmore Square
Gaslight in the South End
Grotto in Beacon Hill
Icarus in the South End
La Morra in Brookline
Lumiere in West Newton
Masa in the South End
Metropolis Cafe in the South End
Pigalle in the Theater District
Quince in Needham
Stix in Back Bay
Tangierino in Charlestown
The Beehive in the South End
Vlora in Back Bay
Just to be clear… I am NOT saying that the other restaurants are not worth visiting. They ALL look great! This is just my knee-jerk reaction to an initial scan of the list (based on places I’ve been to and love and places I’ve been wanting to try… and, I tried to include several different areas in around the city.
Also… THIS WEEK is Stuff at Night’s annual Cocktail Week Boston (it began on Monday). It’s not too late to hit up for your favorite bars for some special cocktails either!
