Here's how it works:  During Dine Out Boston (a.k.a. Restaurant Week), chefs offer prix fixe lunch and dinner menus.

Each chef chooses one of three price options for each meal - $15, $20, or $25 for lunch, and $28, $33, or $38 for dinner - and prepares a delicious menu at the chosen fixed price amount.  

Sometimes, for a small supplement cost, you can add on special extras like a dollop of caviar, a sprinkling of truffles, or a slice of fois gras.  Some restaurants also offer wine pairings or beer flights, and these can often be a great deal.  Prices do not include beverages, taxes, and tips.

With a wide range of participating Boston and Cambridge restaurants on offer, you can choose your Dine Out selections based on your favorite chef, cuisine, location, and price point.

Reservations needed?  Yes - here's why

Dates for Dine Out Boston Winter 2020

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

Although drinks, tax, and tip are additional and a few selections even require supplemental charges, Dine Out Boston still serves up a sweet deal.  Some participating restaurants also offer wine pairings, typically for about $20-$25 more.  Since not everone loves wine, a few restaurants have started offering beer flights - watch for this trend to grow!

Don't forget to make reservations!  Check our tips for reservation strategies.

More Fun Things to Do in Boston

Should You Make Reservations for Dine Out Boston?

Yes.  You definitely need to have reservations because bargain-hunting foodies turn out for this event in huge numbers.  Your best strategy will be to call as soon as the reservation period opens, usually about 3 weeks before each Dine Out 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.
