Winter Restaurant Week 2012 in Brookline and Chestnut Hill

It's time to get out to your favorite Newton and Chestnut Hill restaurants to try their bi-annual, specially discounted menus during Restaurant Week.

Winter Restaurant Week is here again! Twice a year, local restaurants offer special menus at greatly reduced prices. While their regular menus are also available, from March 18 – 23 and March 25 – 30 several Brookline and Chestnut Hill locales will offer a three-course lunch for $20.12 and a three- (or more) course dinner for $33.12. Some restaurants even offer wine pairings at an additional cost.

Reservations can either be made through Open Table or by calling the individual restaurants. Please remember to tip your servers on the full, rather than discounted, cost of the meal.
