Restaurants that AREN'T doing Restaurant Week?

Yes, yes, I know I could go look at the page and see who doesn't appear, but I'm hoping that some of you may have good tips for spots that aren't running RW. Having a thread with ideas in one spot would be nice! My husband and I generally (although not always) find that service is subpar (servers often run ragged b/c its so busy), food uninspired and the restaurants are jammed to the point of annoying, so we tend to want to avoid it.

So, for example, I know that Clio doesn't do RW (although Uni does). West Bridge and Bondir are other possibles.

Others you all know of?
