The true foodie is always on the lookout for that ultimate gourmet experience. More often than not, this experience does not make it to the top of your ‘Pocket friendly things-to-do’ list. And hence, such a culinary delight is a not so regular activity for the low on cash but high on desire foodie!
But, there exists a silver lining for all dark clouds (Yes, foodies included) and this silver lining comes forth in the avatar of ‘Restaurant Week’. This is an immensely popular concept from London and New York that offers three-course meals at fancy restaurants for a snip of their usual prices. The idea is to reach a wider customer base, and give people who wouldn’t necessarily be able to, the opportunity to sample highlights from some of the city’s best restaurants. This is also a brilliant opportunity for the participating restaurants to put their best ‘food’ forward by selecting dishes that personifies their identity and allow the diners to literally take a bite out of their proposed philosophy. Most importantly, it is a celebration of some of the best restaurants our country has to offer and a time for each one of us (foodie or not) to be proud of our culinary scene!
