Who Doesn’t Love Restaurant Week?!?

Posted: January 30, 2012 in Bidness, Eating/Drinking, Entertainment, Style, Tourism

According to today’s  Metro, there are more than a few chefs who could do without the bi-annual event.

It seems some folks-in-the-know in the restaurant business consider Restaurant Weeks as glorified 2-for-1 offers.

And some foodies are even going so far as to publicize the NON-participants in the Week.

There are winners and losers in this tradition.  Sometimes it’s the restaurant that is off it’s game, and sometimes diners get short shrift when the quality of their fancy dining experience is more like what you’d get at your nephew’s wedding.  In past years some prominent restaurateurs have been quite vocal in their dislike of the promotion

Oh, well…there’s obviously some good and some bad in the whole restaurant week concept.  But, when it comes right down to it, we delight in the possibility that some pretentious group of cheapskates comes in from the provinces just to garner bragging rights by eating at a swanky dining establishment and ends up getting the “tourist menu.”

And of course, we don’t for a second mean to imply that any chef is in it just for the money!  That seems impossible!
