The 2011 Summer Boston Restaurant Week is about to kick off with 12 days worth of opportunities to experience some of those off- the-budget restaurants for a special, low prix-fix.
From the 14th-19th and the 21st-26th, at participating restaurants, you can choose from a two course lunch ($15.11), a three course lunch ($20.11) or a three course dinner ($33.11).
Now, although I do love the whole idea behind restaurant week, I have yet to have an experience that lives up to my anticipation...As can been seen by my last RW review, I have some major qualms...
Fortunately, I am one who likes to learn from mistakes and so I am quite prepared (and have recovered enough from my previous experience) to give it all another go:)
This time around, I will make sure to choose a restaurant that offers either an exceptional choice of menu, or better yet, their full menu. There is nothing worse than feeling as though you are being igven a sub par menu designed especially for the 'restaurant week crowd'. If you check out the following link Restaurant Week, a complete list of participating restaurants and their menus can be found. Peruse this with care and select a menu that suits your needs.
I will also not pick a restaurant that looks as though it is about to fall into a crumbling heap...aka Stay away from Anthony's Pier 4.
Ideally, I would like to combine location with acutal menu pricing and the breadth of choice.
Then again, maybe I go a different route and go for a place I have actually tried out (albeit on a much smaller appetizer sized scale) and would like to invest more into...I am thinking something along the lines of Top of the Hub...or Mistral?
As you will soon see, the decision is not an easy one to make. Luckily, Restaurant Week comes about twice a year so I am hoping that I will eventually get it right.
