Where to Avoid Restaurant Week

IMG_5422While Restaurant Week inspires a frenzy of reservation snatching from delighted deal-seekers, there are also plenty of diners who would prefer to stay as far away as possible from the crowded dining rooms and limited menus. Fortunately, Restaurant Week can also be a quieter time to visit otherwise packed places that aren't participating in the promotion. Here are 15 Y&H-approved spots you might want to check out if you have Restaurant Week phobia. Feel free to add other suggestions in the comments.
