The sun rises way too late and sets way too early; the weather is chilly and gray, and the holidays are a distant, hazy memory. These can only mean one thing: Restaurant Week has arrived. It's no secret that having a multi-course meal for $20.14 at lunch or $35.14 for dinner can be a great way to try new restaurants and exciting dishes. But Restaurant Week can also be a waiter's and diner's nightmare when crowds are slamming a place.
What's a Restaurant Week skeptic to do; stay home? Hardly. Some of the most raved about 2013 restaurants, such as Rose's Luxury and the Red Hen, aren't getting into the Restaurant Week game. Others, such as Toki Underground, are so popular and the food's so affordable, what's the point? Another bonus for trying out one of these places this week: crowds might be lighter due to all the folks heading out for the Restaurant Week promotion. So where can someone enjoy a meal in a "business as usual" environment? Check the map to find out some options.
