New Restaurants for Restaurant Week?

  • 8

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?

  1. Mia Dona is relatively new. I plan to go there.

    1. 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.

        Good idea on Grayz. Thank you both for the suggestions.

        1. re: foodjewels

          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.

          1. re: RGR

            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.

              I am going to Grayz for RW dinner and would love to get a peek at the menu. Can you post it please? Thanks. BTW, I love your blog and read it all the time in additon to this board.

                Oh thanks, G3B!

                Um...here's my best attempt to copy and paste it since it was in a PDF format. It would've been easier for me to email it to you.
