Yesterday was our fourth time trying Restaurant Week in the past two years. Tonight we're going to Midtown Oyster Bar and if it turns out to be anything like the last four, it will be our last. We were there in December and loved it. The restaurants just can't seem to pull it off. Slow, confused service. Big plates, small food. Like sample portions in some cases. If I hadn't tried the restaurants during non-restaurant week, I wouldn't return. Last night's restaurant wasn't even busy. Why can't they make it work?

Benjamins. Without a doubt the best restaurant week menu of all the participants. Huge portions and fantastic food.

The Conservatory at Vanderbilt Grace has been the only restaurant so far to make RW truly enjoyable. Four of us went for lunch yesterday and it was outstanding, both food and service.
