Foodies Rejoice! Restaurant Weeks are Coming

Restaurant week is coming! Which, of course, means that us common-folk are allowed into some more prestigious restaurants in the area for a fraction of the regular price.

The most famous restaurant week is the one hosted in New York. It's running from July 21st to the 25th, taking the weekend off, and then starting again on July 28th until August 1st. The 3 course prix-fixe meals cost $24.07 for lunch and $35.00 for lunch.

While it's certainly not the cheapest dining option, it's definitely worth the money. There are hundreds of restaurants participating, such as Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill and Tom Colicchio's (of Top Chef fame) Gramercy Tavern. Personally, the Life in Boxes crew (and friends) will be heading to Indochine for some delicious treats.

For more information, you should visit their official website, and also check out's restaurant recommendations.

However, if you're from Jersey and don't want to make it all the way across the river, Hudson county is hosting their restaurant week as well.

The Hudson Restaurant Week event starts on July 28th and ends on August 8th. There is less selection, but it might give us Jersey folk the opportunity to find hidden food gems in our own back yards.

Their official website is lacking on some details (such as cost), but hopefully they'll update food.

No matter where you end up going, the end of July seems to be a great time to be a stingy foodie in this area.
