Two Restaurant Week winners

We usually avoid Restaurant Week except for steakhouses, which have always been good.

This year we had a lovely dinner at Butcher & Singer. My Caesar salad was generous and well-seasoned, my filet was excellent, and my dessert - a chocolate salted caramel torte - was decadent. Everyone in our group was pleased, the service was topnotch, and the place is beautiful.

We had our second RW dinner by accident. We had gone to the Oyster House, one of our favorites, before a concert and were shown the RW menu. My husband stuck to his oyster dinner but I had the clam chowder (always good), a salad, the lobster roll, and dessert. Oysters (four) were among the appetizer choices.
The lobster roll is small, but it is the tastiest I have had anywhere - just delicious. It comes with a mountain of very good French fries.
We find the food to be consistently good here, and of course the oysters are wonderful.
I found out afterwards that the Oyster House does take reservations for Restaurant Week. We were eating very early, so it didn't matter.

Did anyone else have a good RW experience? I like to remember these suggestions for other years.
