    Mixed feelings on Restaurant Week. While I do believe its a great chance to try a place you've been wanting to (for a good price) I always worry that you aren't getting the best of what the restaurant represents.

    You're not. Talk to anyone who works in a kitchen during Restaurant Week; they'll assure you they're putting out their C-game and tell you to stay at home. The sheer volume makes it impossible for them to deliver something really good.

    Restaurant Week is for enjoying all the restaurants that don't participate in Restaurant Week.
