Quick, change your dinner plans: Dine Out Boston, the twice-yearly event formerly known as Restaurant Week, is back for another 12 days of dining deals in the Greater Boston area. Dozens of restaurants have crafted special lunch and dinner menus for the occasion, with the hopes that you might divert from your regularly scheduled dining program. And why shouldn’t you?

Dining Week, an annual event in which participating restaurants have a set special offer, can make Copenhagen’s diverse food scene more accessible. Restaurant owners hope for long and short-term benefits of attracting customers through the promotion. During the week-long event, which runs until February 17th, restaurateurs will welcome many new guests in what otherwise would be one of the quietest weeks of the year. The hope for business owners is for guests to return during the year and pay regular prices. But does the special offer give new diners an unrealistic picture of value when eating out? "The concept is that all of the participating restaurants serve a three-course menu, including a bottle of mineral water, for 215 kroner plus booking fee per person,” Nusha Riis Hassani, marketing manager with Dining Week, explained in a written comment to The Local.

Mark Kurlyandchik Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Jan 3, 2019 The new year may just be an arbitrary date that we've set for ourselves to delineate another revolution around the sun, but it's also a great time to make wild predictions about what's in store for humanity in the near future and to ask the big questions about the meaning of life. Namely, "What's for dinner?" Look, I'm no astrologer, but I've read the proverbial tea leaves and consulted with a Mars bar for insight into 2019. Here's what the year ahead looks like from my seat on the local dining beat. More restaurants will close Amidst dozens of buzzy openings and high-profile out-of-town-chefs planting flags around metro Detroit, the local restaurant scene also lost some heavyweights of yore in 2018.
