Restaurant Week

Posted by Brette in Food

Last night Mr. MarthaAndMe and I went out to dinner to take advantage of Restaurant Week. This is a wonderful Buffalo-area promotion (also happening in Pittsburgh) that encourages people to get out and try restaurants they normally would not go to. Dinners are $20.10 per person (some restaurants are even doing 2 for $20.10) and most include 2-3 courses. Each restaurant puts together a special restaurant week menu.  We went to Le Metro, a restaurant we’d never tried before. It was completely filled on a Thursday night so I think restaurant week is working. We were given some restaurant made bread and a garlic and white bean spread for it which was tasty and light. Mr. MarthaAndMe started with the salad which had green beans, hardboiled egg, purple potatoes, red onion and olive in it.  Very nice. I had corned beef soup which tasted mostly like beef soup. For entrees, he had lobster mac and cheese which was served in a hot skillet. Elbow mac with white cheeses and pieces of lobster made it very rich and delicious. I had spring roasted chicken with strawberry champagne sauce. This was lovely and came with rice and green beans. Dessert was creme brulee for the Mr. and chocolate mousse for me. The brulee was very nice with a crunchy top. My mousse was a disaster and had to be sent back. It was grainy and thick. I asked if there was another batch and fortunately there was, so my replacement mousse was excellent. For $40.20 plus tax and tip, this was a very affordable meal and a fun weeknight outing. I’m just upset that we don’t have time to try out more options – however restaurant week runs through Sunday. Wouldn’t this be  a great idea to drive business to restaurants in your area?
