Boston, Massachusetts, has not one but two restaurant weeks each year. One is in March, and the other in August: this year’s dates are August 19 through 24 and 26 through 31, 2012. (Do note that August 25 — a Saturday — is not included in this special event.)
More than 225 restaurants in the Boston area design special three-course prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner (prices are per person, and exclude beverages, tax and gratuities).
Diners can choose from old favorites to the latest culinary hot spots, from nationally known chain restaurants to local chef owned bistros, from Asian or Argentinean fare to French, Italian, tapas and sushi, from the award-winning restaurants of Boston and Cambridge to the gourmet gems in the suburbs north, west and south of the city.
