Restaurant Week Is Coming

By Erin

The year is coming to a close, which means January -- and its Winter Restaurant Week -- will soon be here. Yes, the $30.08 three-course dinners and $20.08 three-course lunches will be offered all around town Monday, Jan. 14 through Sunday, Jan. 20.

Highlight participants include Rasika, Charlie Palmer Steak, Oval Room, 701 and Vidalia.

1789 is a great value for the money. However, the restaurant will extend the special through Jan. 27, so you have an additional week to cash in on the goodness. Another perennial favorite, Corduroy, will extend the special, which usually includes the full menu, through Jan. 26.

You have 9 days before the standard month-to-the-day reservation policy opens, so start planning.

you do not really save that much money, if any at all. this is not a good deal for the consumer.

Depending on where you go, you can actually save SIGNIFICANT money. If you're eating at a restaurant where appetizers, soups, salads, etc are $7-$10 each, entrees are $25-$30, and desserts are $5-$8, you would normally be spending between $35 and $50 on the same three items that are costing you $30. I would definitely consider that 16%-40% savings a "good deal for the consumer."

In reality, though, this isn't meant to be a bargain opportunity for eating out. You should look at Restaurant Week as a chance to check out that restaurant you've been meaning to visit, or just broaden your horizons and try something new.

If cheap eats are all you care about, you may as well hit up a fast food place and forget about Restaurant Week.

WHEN are they going to post the official list of participating restaurants???? I've already started making reservations at restaurants just by guessing which ones will be participating based on past experience and hopefulness ...
