Discover Saratoga’s Annual Restaurant Week Kicks Off With $10, $20 And $30 Prix Fixe Meals

Have a case of the Mondays? This week, at least, you’ll have a reason to get over it quick: Discover Saratoga’s hosting its annual Restaurant Week, with more than 50 Saratoga Springs and area restaurants and bars participating.

What does that mean for you? Local eateries will be offering three tiered options: $10 lunches, $20 dinners and $30 dinners at the select locations. So, for example, if you want to grab a $10 lunch in town, you can do so at Esperanto, PJ’s Bar-B-QSA (closed Monday/Tuesday), The Barrelhouse and The Thirsty Owl, among others. Twenty-dollar dinners are being offered at locations such as Boca Bistro, Cantina, Dizzy Chicken and Forno Bistro; and $30 dinners at Chez Pierre, Fish at 30 Lake, Hamlet & Ghost and Mouzon House, among others.

“It’s very exciting to have so many of Saratoga’s favorite restaurants and newcomers on board,” says Darryl Leggieri, president of Discover Saratoga. “We’re excited to be able to showcase their extraordinary menus to locals and visitors alike.”

So are we! And there are a bunch of other great things to do around town besides stuffing your face this week and weekend. Check out our hand-curated list below:
