    2. Frankie -- have you actually had Restaurant Week meals at these places, or are they just restaurants you like the rest of the year?

        I haven't eaten in those restaurants --on restaurant week --i have gone to dinner at those restaurants several times throughout the year.

          Of your list, I've had one RW meal at Great Bay. It was okay, but there are better choices for RW -- I've always been happy with Upstairs on the Square for example. This year I'm checking out Taranta -- they have a good RW reputation.

            Taranta was great for RW last year. Had their fabulous mussels.

                I've done about a dozen restaurant week experiments, with varying levels of success. As other threads on this topic will support, some restaurants to a great job and others not so much. No. 9 Park was the best of the best, Via Matta was my least favorite (ok, so that reminded me, I've had RW there as well.)
