For all the foodies out there, it will soon be a special time of year – Boston’s Restaurant Week!
Back this year with a makeover, Boston’s most delicious event has a new name: Dine Out Boston. And although the name is new, the idea is the same: over 200 of the top restaurants in the Boston area will serve up special prix fixe lunch or dinner menus (or both!) for the event, inviting people from near and far to indulge for less from March 16th - 21st and 23rd - 28th.
Along with the name change, this year’s participating restaurants will offer pricing based off a three-tiered model for each menu. Lunch menus will be priced at $15, $20 or $25 and dinner menus are available for $28, $33 or $38 (not including beverages, tax and gratuities).

You can browse restaurants, from the trendiest new spots and chef-owned bistros to national chains and some of Boston’s esteemed award-winning restaurants, based on neighborhood and cuisine on the website here. With the number of participating restaurants, there’s bound to be something for everyone.
Looking for fondue? The Melting Pot in Bedford/Burlington will have a special $33 three-course dinner menu with enticing options like filet mignon or wild-caught mahi-mahi paired with signature dipping sauces. In the mood for sushi? Osaka in Brookline is offering menus for both a two-course lunch ($15) and a three-course dinner ($28) with fare such as char-grilled Chilean sea bass and Japanese mochi ice cream. Or, if you’re looking to treat yourself to an upscale fine-dining experience, try something like The Capital Grille on Boylston Street, which will feature both a three-course lunch and dinner menu ($25, $38).
