Get Out And Eat: Nashville Restaurant Week 2012 Starts Today

We’re prepping ourselves for some serious eating this week, as Nashville’s first Restaurant Week of 2012 is upon us. Restaurant Week, for the unfamiliar, is a week of fixed-price meals at nearly 50 of Nashville’s finest local restaurants, mostly at $20.12 or $30.12 price points. We like to use the semi-annual event as an opportunity to try newcomers to the list of participating restaurants, but we have a little problem – it seems that every single menu is calling our names this time around.

Even at special reduced prices, Restaurant Week could easily wreak havoc on our bank accounts if we’re not careful. Our plan this time around is to make the most of it by partaking in some of the fantastic (and lower-priced) lunch offerings – $20.12 for a two-person lunch at Fido or Noshville, $2.12 for a cup of soup and bread at Provence, $12.12 for burgers for two at McCabe Pub, or $10.12 for a generous lunch at either Sunset Grill or Fish & Co. We may splurge on a dinner or two – we’re dying to try the mysterious and much-blogged-about Mama Myint’s House Salad at ChaChah – but the lunch deals should keep us fat and happy.

Check out all of the Restaurant Week participating restaurants and their menus here. The first Restaurant Week of 2012 runs January 16-22, but check individual restaurants for operating hours and days (most recommend reservations).
