Troy Restaurant Week

troy restaurant week 2012 logoThe first Troy Restaurant Week starts today and runs through Sunday. It's the usual restaurant week format -- special set menus at a set price. But there's a bit of a twist: participating restaurants will be offering menus at three different price points: $10, $20, and $30. (Though not all restaurants are offering menus at each price point.)

There are 21 restaurants participating. The Troy BID site (linked above) has a listing with details. A quick list of just the restaurant names is post jump.

I looked at it cursorily and didnt find any good deals. You'd pay about the same a la carte, I'd think. If I'm wrong, please give suggestions - would love to go.

Thanks for this list. I'm hitting up the Ale House tonight. They have what looks like vegetarian friendly options.

Aw, now the Ale House will be busy tonight...
