Dine Out Boston FAQs
DINE OUT BOSTON WILL RETURN in 2024
What is Dine Out Boston?
Dine Out Boston, formerly known as Restaurant Week Boston®, is brought to you by Meet Boston twice a year, providing locals and visitors an opportunity to sample area restaurants at special prices. Participating restaurants design prix fixe menus for lunch and dinner. Each participating restaurant selects ONE of the three price options - the Chef then prepares a menu to delight.
Diners can choose from old favorites to the latest culinary hot spots, from nationally known chain restaurants to local chef-owned bistros, from Asian or Argentinean fare to French, Italian, tapas and sushi, from the award-winning restaurants of Boston and Cambridge to the gourmet gems in the suburbs north, west and south of the city.
When is Dine Out Boston?
Dine Out Boston is held twice a year for two weeks in March and August. The next Dine Out Boston will take place in March 2024.

Are Reservations Required?

What is the Charitable Partner?
For each Dine Out Boston, a local charity is selected to benefit from the Dine Out Boston Auction. You can bid on $100 participating restaurant certificates to be auctioned off at DOBauction.com. Proceeds from the Dine Out Boston August 2023 Auction benefitted the The Shirley-Eustis House.
The Shirley-Eustis House is located in Roxbury near Nubian Square, providing a tourism destination for the Roxbury community as well as a unique resource for residents. The Shirley-Eustis House Association seeks to engage the broadest community in understanding the role of Shirley Place, since its construction as a Royal Governor’s mansion in 1747, as it reflects the beginning of our nation and the history of Roxbury and Boston. Over the last few years, the Association has done admirable work researching and presenting the identities and experiences of enslaved people in the Shirley household. Support to the Shirley-Eustis House will invest in an arts and culture institution that is actively transforming its programming and identity into a center for inclusive history that reflects the significance of the Roxbury neighborhood, and the diversity of its community today.
