I am still trying to strategize what nights, + a couple lunches, I want to eat during the pre-fix resto festivities that is "Restaurant Week" extravaganza... I get this was begun I believe 3-4 years ago to put people in seats during a traditionally slower time of dining out for Seattle resto's (rain, short dark days, school, work, traffic slogs that had everyone calling for chinese for delivery and not dining out).
All that said, I think it has become an amazing success - provided that the resto you choose has truly tried to bring their game to YOUR table, and give you a meal that will make you want to come back for not-a-discount; In other words, they got you to come to their establishment with the idea, or the menu online, and they PERFORMED. As in, for the price, you really liked what you had, and hopefully they got you to get glasses or a bottle of wine (add to the bottom line check), and you want to visit again.
What have been your best experiences from the LAST time we did this ( springtime), and who's menu's - many are samples, albiet, but like LARK's is as of now saying theirs is what they are serving for the upcoming week.... - have your found that sample is same as what you find when eating there during resto week?
Where do you want to eat, what new places (or old fav's you can visit for less $$ and indulge in the love), or who is not exciting you to come on down due to the menu planned?
I am going to Lark, Anchovies & Olives, and Spring Hill for dinner so far, what about you?
