Let the Feast Begin

Dear Restaurant Week Guy,

I know what you're doing.

You're sitting in your little corner, getting kickbacks from restaurants, laughing at the expense of the poor, unrefined laypeople of New York City, who have decided to particpate in your little marketing ploy, to venture into the respectable restaurants around the city to enjoy a delectable 3-course prix fixe lunch or dinner ($24.07 and $35 respectively) and act a fool.

We're on to you.

Whew!  Who knew being cynical was so hard.

It's restaurant week ya'll.  So pretty yourselves up and impress someone by taking them out to a fancy restaurant.  Just make they order from the prix fixe menu.  I know I will.  (Pretty myself up, I mean.)

Eh. I think the whole thing's a scam!

Just go where you want when you want.

I agree with Jess. I actually did it twice, 1 lunch, 1 dinner. They actually reduce the portions and usually offer you the cheapest thing on their menu. Those are the big name expensive places. The smaller places though, it is a really good opportunity to try things.

We have the same thing here in Toronto, but it has always been good with a fair choice in delicacies and such.

Cynical? Cynical?!?

So, what time is our reservation?

Here in Montreal, we've no need for that kind of gimmic. We're famous for having a huge and diverse number of restaurants in the city - and you can find 5 start quality for really low prices.
