Dine Out 2017 Dates

Dine Out Boston® (formerly Restaurant Week) is back on the menu August 6-11 & 13-18! Visit dineoutboston.com to see over 150 participating restaurants, browse menus and make reservations. Presented by the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB), and sponsored by American Express, Dine Out Boston is celebrating its 16th year of providing diners an opportunity to enjoy the region's dining scene, and restaurateurs the chance to bring in new guests.  This two-week celebration showcases Boston’s diverse restaurant scene.

During the two weeks of Dine Out Boston, diners have numerous choices as they enjoy Greater Boston's finest dining coupled with significant savings. The program’s flexible pricing structure benefits restaurants and guests alike.

"Dine Out Boston spotlights Boston as one of America's premier culinary destinations, providing patrons from Boston and afar with a unique opportunity to enjoy exceptional value, variety and hospitality in Greater Boston restaurants," said Patrick B. Moscaritolo, President & CEO of the GBCVB. “Diners are invited to take advantage of these restaurant deals while taking in seasonal activities – an outdoor concert, ballgame, or museum exhibition, coupled with a Dine Out Boston meal, makes for a classic Boston experience!"

American Express will also make available an exclusive offer to American Express Card Members during Dine Out Boston.  Card Members can enroll an eligible American Express Card, use their enrolled Card to spend $25 or more in a single transaction at any participating restaurant from August 6-18, and get a $5 statement credit.

Since 2012, the GBCVB has used this dining program to give back to different local Boston non-profits each year. To date, close to $375,000 has been raised for charities through the online auction component of DOB. The charitable partner for August 2017 is the Parks Beautification Fund. The Fund is dedicated to the annual plantings in our historic parks, making these public spaces all the more vibrant and captivating. Gift Certificates provided by participating restaurants will be up for auction starting August 7, with proceeds benefiting the Parks Beautification Fund.
