The essential compendium of your Restaurant Week haiku

By Alex Baldinger

In this week's Going Out Guide chat, we asked you to share your thoughts on Restaurant Week in standard 5-7-5 haiku format, and you did not disappoint. What seems apparent: Lots of you have a few things you'd like to fix about the dining promotion.

Some had complaints about limited menus:

Small menus they are
With prices that go too far
Let's go to a bar

What a deal it seems
But limited menus lade
Service underwhelms

The season is nigh
For few veggie offerings
Pathetic, try. Why?

Why am I tempted
By promises of cuisine
That never live up?

Others weren't happy with the restaurant chosen for a specific occasion:

Celebrate one year
With surprise meal for foodie -
Morton's Steak, Really?

On the positive side, there were culinary discoveries to be made:

At B.D. Tavern,
I learned bone marrow mostly
Tastes like meat butter.

Restaurant deals yo
I tried lunch, Sushi Taro
Just one word, Bravo

And the peril induced by overindulgence:

Cruel Restaurant Week
I gorge until I vomit.
Should I eat some more?

And finally, one that doesn't have a whole lot to do with Restaurant Week but seemed poignant:

Miller Lite Vortex?
Seppuku is only way.
Beer dishonors floor.
