Hi, just moved from NYC and have been excited to try all the great food in the Dallas area.
Restaurant Week is generally a love/hate kind of situation -- it's for a great cause and gives you an opportunity to try out some new places. However, the crowds can be intense, affecting food quality & service. Plus, most places seem to water down their menu to cut costs.
On the Manhattan board, there was an active thread during every Restaurant Week for diners to review their experiences. It really helped to plan subsequent Restaurant Week reservations so we could avoid those establishments that catered to the lowest common denominator and chose those that really took up the challenge to maintain tasty/interesting food at an accessible price point.
I haven't found that kind of thread on this board, and had kind of a miserable experience at this past Restaurant Week. Anyone interested in sharing their experiences last week (or this week, for those restaurants that extended)?
