Restaurant Week 2017 Will Have Brunch Options

Sliders at GT Fish & Oyster, one of our favorite brunch spots available during Restaurant Week.

It seems like it was just last month that we reviewed every single Restaurant Week menu to determine whether they were a good value, but actually, it's been almost an entire year. Restaurant Week 2017 is coming up fast, and there's one big new development that we're excited about: Brunch.

New for 2017, restaurants will be able to offer a $22 brunch deal (the same price as lunch). The list of participants isn't huge, but there are some great options, including The Duck Inn, Acanto, GT Fish & Oyster, River Roast and Imperial Lamian. As of today, 36 restaurants total (out of the 328 participating in restaurant week) are doing brunch. Also, Restaurant "Week" is now 14 days long, so you should have at least two opportunities to get in for brunch. These are sure to book up fast.

We'll refrain, for now, from offering any opinions about value. Before you ask, yes, we'll be doing another analysis to get you the very best deals during Restaurant Week 2017. Stay tuned.
