Everything You Need to Know About Dine Out Boston Week
Calling all foodies: August Dine Out Week (formally Restaurant Week) is almost upon us! Gather alongside local Bostonians on the second and third weeks of August and enjoy some of the city's best restaurants at unbeatable prices!
How it Works
Use Dine Out Week's restaurant finder to browse participating restaurants. You can filter by Boston neighborhood, cuisine type, and preferred pricing. Some restaurants offer a fixed price for a three-course meal, or discounted lunch and dinner menus made for the occasion. Prices usually fall in the range of $15-$25 for lunch, and $48-$38 for dinner, per person. No reservations are required, but we highly suggest doing so if possible.
Studio Allston-Approved Restaurants
We get it. If you're not from Boston, finding a restaurant can be difficult. Here's some of our favorite spots participating in Dine Out:
This underground Bohemian gem in the Back Bay dishes out American fare, accompanied by live entertainment. For $38 dollars, you’re guaranteed a delicious meal and plenty of dancing.
Grafton Street Pub & Grill
Want something close to Studio Allston? Grafton Street Pub & Grill—a relaxed gastropub with specialty cocktails—is only a neighborhood away in Cambridge. Their Dine Out Week dinner menu includes an appetizer, entree, and dessert for just $28!
Located in the historical John Hancock Counting House, Chart House is a long-time historical haunt with a roster of ribs, steak, and fresh seafood. We're looking forward to their $25 lunch menu, full of greens, chowder, and cheesecake!
Make sure you participate in Dine Out Week's online auction to bid on restaurant gift certificates. 100% of proceeds go to MLK Boston, a non-profit that creates memorials and programs dedicated to the life of the late Martin Luther King Jr.
