Restaurant Week Reprieve

Boston Restaurant Week starts on Sunday – if you’re not a fan of the two week long prix fixe extravaganza, there’s no need to be left out in the cold – the list of restaurants that are abstaining from the festivities is long enough to keep you well fed until it’s over. Avoid the crowds at suburban spots like Alta Strada, Blue Ginger, Franklin Cape Ann, Red Rock Bistro, Rustic Kitchen Hingham, Sel de la Terre Natick, Sherborn Inn, Tastings Wine Bar & Bistro, Tosca or Trattoria della Nonna. If you’re in the mood for something casual, plan an outing to an always-budget-friendly spot like Ashmont Grill, Church, Coda, Kingston Station, Poe’s Kitchen, Regal Beagle or Tavolo. Hit the road and head for restaurants like Black Trumpet and Pesce Italian Kitchen in Portsmouth or the Spiced Pear in Newport, or stick closer to home and revisit a tried and true favorite like Bravo, The Bristol Lounge, Clio, Craigie on Main, Finale, Franklin Café, Garden at the Cellar, Grill 23, Hamersley’s, Hungry Mother, Kingfish Hall, Marco, Oleana, Rustic Kitchen, Sauciety, Stix or Troquet. Call the restaurants directly for reservations and Restaurant Week will be over before you know it.
