Restaurant Week Frequently Asked Questions

A Restaurant Week is your opportunity to try as many restaurants as your schedule allows for one incredibly low fixed price. Ever wondered about that restaurant you’ve heard about or driven by all those times? Restaurant Week is your chance to give it a try with the security of knowing exactly what you will be spending. Restaurant Weeks happen several times a year in towns all over Connecticut as well as an annual state-wide week.

2. Why do restaurants participate in Restaurant Week?
Restaurant Week offers restaurants the opportunity to introduce the community and visitors to what they do best at a price that encourages dining out. Restaurants will be showing you their best, they want you to come back!

It depends on individual local city or state wide week. Usually both lunch and dinner are fixed price menus offering several courses.
