Tell Them You’re Here for Restaurant Week
Ask for the Restaurant Week menu. Let them know if you’re new to their restaurant or returning, and tell them you’re here for Restaurant Week. Oftentimes, it’s the only way they can tell if Restaurant Week is a success.

The experience varies dramatically from restaurant to restaurant; for example, some restaurants offer multiple course options while others offer tapas or small plates. Some restaurants offer their signature dish while others offer less expensive items.
