Today kicks off Restaurant Week. As an added bonus this glorious week has been extended to two weeks to celebrate its 5th anniversary. Frank and I have enjoyed a different restaurant each day of restaurant week the past couple years. This year, though, we're scaling back.
Splurging on 14 meals would be excessive any way you slice it. But I did hope we could indulge in a regular week of meals spacing them out over the two week period. However, we ran into unexpected repairs and I nearly had to kiss my dreams of restaurant week good-bye. Now, that it's actually here, it looks like we'll finagle a few meals afterall. Woot!
Our first meal will be at Sirio inside Aria on Wednesday. When it first opened I heard mixed reviews, since then majority sing its praises. Sirio is run by the Maccioni family, who also operate, Circo, my favorite Italian restaurant in the city. I figure it's time to see how they compare. Restaurant week provides us with the perfect excuse to do so.
Other restaurant menus that piqued my interest are DOCG, Alize, Prime, Roy's and Sensi. Carnegie Deli also has a lunch menu for $20.11 that looks intriguing. It'd be a good time to stray from our usual corned beef rueben and try their pastrami.
We'll wait and see how these meals shape up.
