Officially, Restaurant Week Boston 2013 (which actually spans two weeks) runs from March 17 to 22 and March 24 to 29, taking a break from the save-some-bucks-while-dining-on-fabulous-food fun on Saturday, March 23. But, I'm going to let you in on a little secret: Many of the eateries extend the promotion and include the special fixed-price meals on Saturday as well.

A few, in fact, let the good times roll on Saturday, March 30 too. Some of the restaurants that will offer Restaurant Week menus on Saturday include: Morton's The Steakhouse Seaport North 26 Faneuil Hal Petit Robert South End The Met Back Bay Moko Japanese Restaurant South Boston UpStairs on the Square Harvard Square Reservations, as far in advance as possible, are strongly recommended for Restaurant Week regardless of the venue or the day of the week. But reservations for Saturday at those places that offer it would be virtually mandatory if you expect to get a table.

The list above is by no means complete. To find more locations that include Saturday, to make reservations, and to get more info about the event, visit the official Restaurant Week Boston site.
