My word, March is a busy month. No sooner do we wrap up the Wine Festival, than the Spring offering of Greater Cincinnati Independents' Restaurant Week happens. March 16 – March 22 you can visit 26 locally owned restaurants for a 3-course, prix-fixe menu for $26.09.
As I've said the last few times we have had Restaurant Week, this is a great opportunity to try some restaurants you haven't experienced for a great price.
We've had both good and bad experiences. I believe that, because they are bringing in so many new customers, restaurants should always put their best foot forward during Restaurant Week. However, we've had a mediocre experience at Tink, a passable experience at Red, and amazing experiences at Bella Luna, The Pub, and Chalk. So it runs the gamut. I still think it's a great deal and the restaurants will, hopefully, take advantage of the chance to show off a little.
Keep in mind that the $26.09 does not include drinks, taxes, or tip. However, we've noticed in the past that a lot of restaurants offer a paired wine flight for a special price as well. According to the GCI web site, some of the casual themed restaurants are offering dinner for 2 for $26.09!
Restaurant Week is such a deal that it's our Recession Deal of the week.
Participating restaurants are after the jump, and you can read full details on the GCI web site.
