Best Deals This Week: Restaurant Week Boston

So, the move went smoothly. I am so grateful to have had so much help from so many wonderful people. I'd still be moving right now if it wasn't for all the friends and family I had by my side this weekend!

Now that the move is over, let's get to the important stuff: It's Restaurant Week in Boston. For us frugal foodies, this week and next week encompass one of the best times of the year. Some of Boston's best restaurants are adjusting their menus to accommodate every wallet size, and feeding us nothing but quality, scrumptious dishes. I'm ecstatic.

Because there are so many wonderful restaurants participating in this summer's festivities, and because there is such a necessary focus on locally-sourced food, the Best Deal for this week includes every single participating restaurant. Personally, I am excited to sample the cuisine at EVOO, Rialto, and The Fireplace, and I'd love to make a return visit to Ten Tables.

Here's a complete list of participating restaurants. Which ones are you excited to try?


  1. I was thrilled to see a search by local food option for Restaurant Week this time around. I'll be visiting a neighborhood gem, and favorite, Bistro 5 with my girlfriends and Flora, for the first time, with my husband. I can't wait!

  2. I have such a love/hate relationship with RW. I'm not sure if I will participate in RW but if I do, I will definitely try one of the restaurants with a local option.

  3. GGC - I just moved to Arlington, and have passed Flora many times in the past few days - let me know how it is!

  4. I've had my fair share of so-so RW meals, but my dinner at Rialto the other night turned me back into a RW fan!
