B.R. Guest Latest to Respond With a Restaurant Week “Substitution Special”

Published by Andy at 6:27 pm under Recession Specials

Last week we called upon restaurants participating in Restaurant Week to allow customers ordering off the RW menu to substitute a glass of wine for the dessert course (sorry to all you pastry chefs and dessert bloggers out there). The response so far has been great. We just received an email earlier this afternoon that B.R. Guest’s Wildwood Barbeque  has responded to our call-to-action with a “Substitution Special.” Customers will have the option to choose a mug of Wildwood’s “Cold Ass Beer” or a glass of featured wine in place of an appetizer or dessert course at both lunch and dinner. Have a look at Wildwood’s Restaurant Week menus here for lunch and here for dinner. This deal just got pretty good. For $35, we’d definitely head to Wildwood for a choice of soup or salad, choice of skirt steak, smoked cornish hen or apple stuffed pork loin + a mug of beer or glass of wine. Sorry dessert, we’re just not feelin’ ya.

Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that other B.R. Guest restaurants around town (Atlantic Grill, Blue Fin, Blue Water Grill, Isabella’s, Ocean Grill and Vento) are offering select bottles of wine for $20.09 at lunch and $35 at dinner.

    Here’s a quick rundown of the restaurants that we’ve heard back from:

    - Cafe des Artistes will let you sub a glass of wine for dessert course

    - If you request it, Benoit will also allow you to sub a glass of wine for dessert course (not a formal policy or on the menu though)

    - Artisanal is offering a cheese plate as a third course option

    - Chinatown Brasserie will let you sub a glass of wine for dessert course on a buy 1 get 1 free basis (basically pay for 1 glass of wine and get 2).

    - Almost all Patina Group Restaurants are giving you 25% off all bottles on their wine list through March 31st.

    Way to go, Wined and Dined! Great idea, and props for having the drive to get somebody to change their policies.
