Head back for seconds during Triangle Restaurant Week

— Triangle Restaurant Week, a week-long celebration of the area's culinary scene, is returning for the second time this year. Beginning on Monday, June 2, TRW will continue through Sunday, June 8.

Participating restaurants, which this time around number more than 80, are offering three-course prix fixe menus. Some restaurants are just participating for dinner, and others are also offering lunch menus. At most restaurants, lunch is $15 and dinner is $20 or $30.

While some of the restaurants' menus are still being finalized and tweaked, you can take a look at the participating restaurants here, or visit the Triangle Restaurant Week website.

For a truly unique experience, check out "The Chef's Table," which became an option during TRW this past January. Select restaurants will offer a five-course menu paired with five wines for $50 to $100. Reservations for The Chef's Table are only available Monday through Thursday during TRW.

    Perhaps SNOWL was cracking a joke about MOM's comment. The phrasing of MOM's comment makes it sound like she wants to eat cancer, not that she cannot eat due to the cancer.

    That was a bit rude. I won't eat a lot of what restaurants put out on Restaurant Week, and it has nothing to do with being part of the "Golden Corral crowd." Many of the restaurants I've patronized on Restaurant Weeks feature items I find to be too busy. I don't want a dish with 10+ ingredients. Being too busy takes away from the integrity of the dish by hiding the individuals flavors within each other. I wish more restaurants would feature what's on their normal menu so more people could have a taste of what's served daily.

    Some people are turned off by snobbery on Restaurant Week as well.

    One of the downfalls of restaurant week is you get the Golden Corral crowd like snowl who believe a good dinner is a buffet of canned vegetables and all you can eat beef by-products. On the other side, you get the positives of those sort who believe that all you can eat buffet is good eating but learn that you can have a great experience eating something fresh and different that doesn't have to have to be protected by sneeze guards. I'd say it's a win for most, and I appreciate the participation of our great local restaurants.
