Restaurant Week picks and suggestions

Overwhelmed by the number of Restaurant Week choices? We’ve got five top-five lists to help you decide where to make your reservation.

Best bang for your buck

Looking to take advantage of Restaurant Week’s fixed prices to nab a bit of a deal–while still helping out a great cause? Try one of these spots where, during a regular week, you could easily drop more than $25 (typical entrée prices in parenthesis).

  1. Julep’s Restaurant ($25 – 31)
  2. Chez Foushee ($24-36)
  3. Amuse Restaurant ($20-27)
  4. Millie’s Diner ($19-28)
  5. Acacia Mid-town ($18-29)

Out-of-the-box menus
