    uhhh… good try?? I think they missed the point. typically restaurant week participants provide reduced portion, scope, and cost such that their meals are more affordable and accessible. Such examples are being able to lets say have a small multi course meal at Jose Andres Bazaar for $35 vs. a typical meal would cost upwards of $80-100 bucks a person starting.

    some restaurants are such as Tutti Manga are merely providing a prix fixe and shaving a couple bucks off their regular price…. but then again, don’t most prix fixe menus already do that?

    Saca’s for restaurant week. so for $10 I get an appetizer, sandwich, falafel, baklava, fountain drink… gratuity not included it says. vely funny.
