Access the Menu Beforehand
Consider the preferences and eating habits that you and your friends and family enjoy. Not all restaurants cater to everyone. Browse the menus beforehand and visit the restaurants with a variety of options that can cater to a wide array of preferences – from the young to the mature, the vegan to the meat lover. Restaurants like Trader Jack’s Island Grill, located in Fiesta Plaza Movie Towne, for example, already have their menus accessible for all anticipating patrons.
Make Reservations Early
After you’ve downloaded your menus, make your reservations. Don’t hesitate!
Everyone is just as excited as you are to be a part of this immersive experience of great food. Make a reservation at your favourite restaurant now to make sure you don’t miss out on the action.
Go Hungry, Leave Satisfied
No matter how big of an eater you are, take our advice and go hungry. Don’t have a big breakfast before you take advantage of the unbelievable 3-course meals available for $300 and under. Check out J. Malone’s Irish Pub and Restaurant, for instance! They’ve prepared a delicious three-course lunch menu for only $120! Imagine paying only $200 and getting Bacon Risotto (Appetizer), Honey Peppercorn Salmon (First Course), Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (Dessert), and a complimentary Tequila Sunrise for Dinner! J. Malone’s clearly has you and your crew covered.
The competition between the participating restaurants will have you declaring the old Trini saying “Better belly buss dan good food waste” as your personal motto. Ordering delicious seconds and mouth-watering desserts would seem like the only sensible thing to do.
Lastly, you’ll definitely want to take a look at the pre-existing reputation of the restaurants you decide to visit for restaurant week.
