I just returned from vacation and, while I had the time of my life romping around and trying new dishes including kudu and ostrich, I was sorry to have missed a huge portion of Restaurant Week. For those of you who missed the boat and didn't get your reservations in time or just forgot, several restaurants have come to our aid with extended specials.
Butterfield 9, a Gurus' pick for local romantic restaurant, hopes to draw promotion-loving diners through Aug. 27 with items like pork medallions and a fresh peach shortcake. Charlie Palmer Steak, one of our picks for favorite steaks, extends the special through Aug. 26 with a list that offers two steak options, in addition to a grilled peach salad and salmon. Dino lets hungry patrons choose any appetizer, an entree or pasta and any dessert through Aug. 24. For a small supplement, the restaurant offers wine flights.
I Ricchi's menu special, available through Aug. 31, includes a winter vegetable risotto and creamy mushroom pasta. Indebleu extends through Aug. 27 with choices like a lobster "cappuccino" and salmon on eggplant mash. Mie N Yu's menu, also available through Aug. 27, offers spicy tuna tartare, short ribs and a whole rockfish for two.
If you're very late on the draw, Oya will have seasonal dishes, like yellow tomato soup and a banana bread pudding, through Sept. 9. As I reported earlier this summer, 1789 is not participating in Restaurant Week, but the restaurant is offering a stellar dinner offer through Sept. 13.
The week isn't over yet, so let me live vicariously through you with your reviews and feedback. Any great new finds or amazing dishes?
