The Northeastern Guide to Restaurant Week

(Special thanks to @ARGYLE5 for contributing!)

It’s that wonderful time of the year again where students can emerge from our standard, cost-effective, nearby eateries and seek out a truly brilliant culinary experience, for Restaurant Week is almost here!

From August 19th – 24th and August 26th – 31st, you will be able to go to some of the finest restaurants in Boston and get a great prix fixe dinner for 33 dollars (see their website for cheaper lunch options)!

But, now the question is, which restaurant should you choose?  Check out our list of some of the top choices and assistance navigating the 170 restaurants participating!

What You Should Consider

  • As this is the summertime, you’re probably going to want something with some sort of patio (rooftop, garden, etc.) that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. For example, check out the patio at Blue Restaurant located above the Ritz Carlton at Downtown Crossing:
  • No matter where you go, your dining experience will be enhanced by the friends you bring along, so make sure to start coordinating right away to put together your fine dining dream team.
  • Finally, as this is a great opportunity to get outside of your usual restaurant bubble, look at what is being offered and find something that you’ve never tried before in a place where you’ve never been. Boston is filled with top-notch, hidden gem restaurants that you would never think to try, so be sure to do a search for the restaurants with a “rooftop bar” or a “view of the skyline!”

For some suggestions to get started, here are some of our favorites:
