I am happy to report that its once again Restaurant Week in New Haven! This fall's New Haven Restaurant Week will run from Sunday, November 3rd through Friday, November 8th. Participating restaurants will offer a three course, prix fixe menu consisting of an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Prix fixe menus are priced at $18 for lunch and $32 for dinner.
New Haven Restaurant Week has become a seasonal tradition for residents and visitors alike, providing an opportunity to sample New Haven’s wonderful and nationally-known restaurants at special pricing.
Here are a few tips to ensure you have the best possible experience during Restaurant Week:
• Make reservations as early as possible as restaurants are sure to book fast.
• Try a new night—if you cannot secure a Friday reservation, try a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday night. It’s a nice way to break up the work week!
• Don’t forget about lunch! If you are set on dining at particular restaurant but cannot get a dinner reservation, don’t be discouraged—try lunch instead!
