The semi-annual Dine Out Boston is underway this week and next in greater Boston, and that’s great news for visitors and locals alike who want to sample some amazing cuisine at fantastic prices at over 170 restaurants.
Here is a list of participating restaurants.
Formerly called Restaurant Week. Dine Out Boston runs from March 6-11 and 13-18, 2016 in restaurants in the greater Boston area. Now in its 15th year, the culinary festival is run by the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) in partnership with American Express.
Dine Out Boston features a flexible pricing structure benefiting restaurants and guests alike. Restaurants can customize their lunch and dinner menus by choosing price-points: lunch for $15, $20 or $25 and dinner for $28, $33 or $38.
The winter feast (which also takes place in the summer) continues to grow in popularity and this year 18 new restaurants have joined Dine Out Boston, including Ocean Prime, Novara, Tuscan Kitchen and Bostonia Public House.
More good news for diners: some of the proceeds go toward a local charitable group, and this year’s recipient is Boston HarborFest, a Fourth of July festival celebrating the nation’s rich maritime history. Since it was created, Dine Out Boston has raised over $300,000 for local charities through its online auction.
Massachusetts has a vibrant culinary scene, with food festivals, farmers markets, and regional restaurant celebrations taking place throughout the year. The Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism has a handy culinary calendar with details on upcoming events.
