Dine Out Boston® (formerly Restaurant Week) is back on the menu August 16-21 & 23-28! Visit to browse menus, make reservations, and view takeout options at over 100 participating restaurants. Presented by the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau (GBCVB), Dine Out Boston is celebrating its 20th year of providing diners an opportunity to enjoy the region's exquisite culinary offerings, and restaurateurs the chance to bring in new guests.  This two-week celebration showcases Boston’s diverse restaurant scene.

"This August we are using the tagline ‘Dining Out, Together Again,’ to promote this signature program," said Martha J. Sheridan, President & CEO of the GBCVB. “We understand the severe impact that the global health pandemic has had on restaurants and on consumer confidence.  Our hope is that Dine Out Boston can help both to recover - spotlighting Boston as a premier culinary destination while prioritizing public safety practices.  We encourage restaurants to share takeout and delivery options and to get creative with their al fresco dining.”

During the two weeks of Dine Out Boston, diners have numerous choices as they enjoy some of Greater Boston's finest dining coupled with significant savings. The program’s flexible pricing structure benefits restaurants and guests alike. Restaurants can customize their lunch and dinner menus by choosing price-points: lunch for $15, $20 or $25 and dinner for $28, $33 or $38.  Restaurants can offer as many courses as they desire at their selected price.  For restaurants and patrons that prefer takeout options, please visit to see a full list of options.
