New Restaurants for Restaurant Week?

f

Does anyone have any good suggestions for new places to try during Restaurant week? I just want a new experience, to find a somewhat untapped goldmine or just take a chance. Any bright ideas or eager eaters awaiting a review?

    There really aren't any brand new restaurants on the list.

    Grayz hasn't been around too long. Now that Cafe Gray has closed, it should be interesting to see what Gray Kunz is doing at Grayz. RW lunch and dinner.

        If you do go to Grayz, I hope you will report back. I don't do RW, but if you have a good experience, I will consider giving it a try once RW is over.

          Grayz's RW menus seem interesting (they've kindly emailed it to me) but I was hesitant about going there since I didn't hear much feedback about this place.

          Please do report on your experience, foodjewels.
