-DO your homework and look at menu offerings and prices on line. Some places offer the whole menu and some offer special RW menus
-DO leave generous gratuity, people are working just as hard.
-DON’T Show up without a reservation
-DON’T be unkind , staffing shortages are still real
-AND DO know that many restaurants extend their price offerings past the official restaurant week dates. Always, check websites for details.
