Restaurant Week is a yearly event, in fact it happens twice a year. As a matter of fact, many of the restaurants continue with the specials past the one week. And the restaurants are some of the top, most expensive in the city. You get a three course meal for a fixed price way below the normal. The choices are limited, and drinks, taxes and gratuities are extra, but it is a great way to experience a restaurant that you may not try at a regular price. Make sure you book as far in advance as possible. Reservations are required.
