Brooklyn Restaurant Week Deals

We've always preferred Brooklyn's Restaurant Week (officially known as Dine In Brooklyn) over that in Manhattan. For starters it's cheaper + many of the participating restaurants offer more expansive menus. This year, lunch costs just $15 (for 2 people!) and dinner will run you $25.00 between (today, tomorrow, and next Monday-Thursday).

Our favorite spots include: Peaches Kitchen & BarApplewood, and Blue Ribbon.
