Raleigh Restaurant Week 2012 - Help a newbie, please?
We just moved to the Brier Creek area (arriving in time to catch the last day of Durham Restaurant Week) and I'm looking for suggestions for the upcoming Raleigh Restaurant Week, August 20 - 26. Ideas??
Unless things have changed radically this year, Restaurant Week is rarely worth it. Your best bet would be to scan this board for restaurants whose menus appeal to you and/or ask for the thoughts of people whose opinion you respect and just go to those resturants for a meal.
The RW menus are generally not "special" in that they are just items off the standard menu and the prices usually do not represent any kind of deal or bargain. In fact, there have been cases in years past where a RW menu was actually priced higher than if you ordered the exact same dishes off the regular menu. I don't think that has happened recently, though.
