Boston | Restaurant Week - Winter 2012

Boston Restaurant Week | Winter 2012

It's that time of the year again - Boston Restaurant Week! I can't even tell you how excited I am for this food- and fun-filled festival in the city. Of all the restaurant weeks in the states, I absolutely think Boston offers one of the most fascinating and best valued flairs, starting at $15.12 for 2-course light lunch, $20.12 for 3-course lunch, and $30.12 for 3-course dinner. That is an awesome deal considering entrees at high-end restaurants could cost almost twice as much as the 3-course dinner price (for example, the No. 9 Park).

Unfortunately, this is probably my last restaurant week in Boston, as I will graduate from M.I.T. in June. Therefore, I went to as many restaurant as I could in 4 days damaging my weight as well as my wallet...

Tips for next year:
Since the Boston Restaurant Week is sponsored by American Express, AMEX card holders get premium access with an early reservation period as well as a $20 statement credit when you spend $100 at 3 or more restaurants. I definitely took advantage of those two perks!
