In New York City we have what is known as restaurant week. We get to dine out at fine restaurants for dinner and get an appetizer, entree, and dessert for only $42/person per person. Or we can choose to have a 3 course lunch for only $29/person. Once you add the drinks (alcohol, coffee/tea) and the tax it comes out to much more per person but still cheaper than doing the regular menu. This lets us go to expensive restaurants, try delicious food, and not spend as much money as we would have on a regular day. Restaurant week happens twice a year. One is in the winter and another one is in the summer. The summer one is already here. It started on June 24th and will go until August 18th. I can't wait to go out for dinner. Planning on doing it more than once. My task is to pick out which restaurants to go to and confirm with my hubby and then we are off. Very excited. Is there restaurant week where you live?

@Happy2BeMe Interesting name for this. I wonder why it's called Chop Chop. Drinks are not included in our restaurant week either, though the French restaurant week did include a drink, but no dessert though. That was from regular menu, if we wanted it.

@lovebuglena Your NYC restaurant week is so interesting w/ all the discounts it offers. I'm not aware of any restaurant week here in my neck of the wood, although there are discount every now and then in some eatery or restaurant as part of their promotional.

Colorado has long food festivals. I am not sure of all the details as I have never been to it, but I know the fee to attend is minimal and one gets tons of food. Good enough. There is a restaurant opening here every week at least. Always something going on around food here. Here is one such offering
