In celebration of the 5th anniversary of the winter edition of Restaurant Week Boston, the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) and American Express will add even more value for consumers. As usual, from March 14-19 & 21-26, 2010 diners can take advantage of prix fixe menus at more than 200 of the region’s best eateries, including three-course dinners for $33.10, three-course lunches for $20.10, and two-course light lunches for $15.10 - prices are per person and exclude beverages, tax and gratuity.
Starting in March 2010, the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau in partnership with ArtsBoston will offer diners half price tickets to select performances and concerts during Restaurant Week. Discounts are being offered throughout Greater Boston for performances at American Repertory Theater, Huntington Theatre Company, Boston Lyric Opera, Improv Asylum, and Blue Man Group.
Visitors can go online to see a list of participating restaurants, take advantage of half-price tickets, peruse menus, make reservations, and enter to ‘Win a Boston Getaway’ all on the Official Restaurant Week website.
Restaurant Week Boston is about more than great deals. When diners use any American Express Card at participating restaurants, American Express and the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau will donate* $.25 per transaction, up to $5000, to Boston’s St. Francis House, which serves more than 800 poor and homeless men and women a day with a full range of basic, rehabilitative and housing services to end an individual’s experience of homelessness.
* Purchases are not tax deductible.
Beginning on March 15th, diners can further support St. Francis House by bidding on restaurant gift certificates at www.RWBauction.com.
