Lots of restaurants also offer the special menus on the Saturday between the two weeks.  A few make their special menus - and prices - available throughout the months of March and August.

Although drinks, tax, and tip are additional and a few selections even require supplemental charges, Restaurant Week in Boston still serves up a sweet deal.  Some participating restaurants also offer wine pairings, typically for about $15-$20 more - usually great deals.

Should you make reservations for Restaurant Week in Boston?

You definitely need to have reservations during Restaurant Week in Boston because bargain-hunting gourmands turn out for this event in huge numbers, so be sure to call as soon as the reservation period opens, usually about 3 weeks before each Restaurant Week period.

Because many of the city's top restaurants take part, competition to get coveted reservations can be fierce - but diners are well-rewarded by the opportunity to sample the cuisine of famous chefs, revisit old favorites, and try the offerings of newcomers.  Check my 5 top tried-and-true tips for getting the best value from Boston Restaurant Week.

My family and friends look forward to Restaurant Week for months, and dine in as many different places as we can fit into our schedules and budgets.  If you're planning to visit Boston while this event is underway, get ready for a treat!

Check the Boston Event Calendars for March and August for exact dates.
