newportrestlogoIt’s Restaurant Week in Newport, Rhode Island. To me, Newport (or even Providence & Westerly Restaurant week) signify a chance for my husband and me to go out and discover new restaurants and dine on a budget. Then again, it is also a chance for the family to dine out at a nice restaurant but on a budget as well.

If you have never experienced a ‘Restaurant Week’, you really should look into one in your state. During Restaurant Week, numerous restaurants (almost 50 restaurants are participating in the Newport and Bristol area for Newport Restaurant Week) offer prix fixe lunches and dinners. For Newport Restaurant Week, the cost is $16 for a three-course lunch and $30 for a three-course dinner.

The other part of Restaurant Week that appeals to me is that there are often other events that run during this week such as winemaking, pairings, brew tours, walking tours, etc.

Do a search online for a restaurant week in your state and start exploring.
