If you cannot make it to Paris for Roland-Garros, also known as the French Open, you can still follow the action on the tournament’s official website. There, you’ll find round-the-clock coverage of the two-week French Open running from May 16 through June 5. Real-time scores, streaming radio commentary and a live blog of tennis’ largest and most prestigious clay-court competition are available 24/7, keeping you up-to-date with the latest news on the action.
Today, more and more restaurants are adopting a small plates concept. And actually, I like that. First because, you get to try more dishes, so you experience more tastes and flavors. But also, because, most of the time, small plates means sharing with the people around the table. Isn’t that a great way to enjoy an evening out with your dining partners?
Restaurant Week Boston started yesterday, and runs through Friday, August 20, and then next Sunday through Friday August 22-27. The 10th annual Restaurant Week boasts more than 200 participating restaurants throughout Boston, Cambridge and neighboring suburbs. I’m delighted to see some of my all-time favorites on the list: Cambridge’s Rialto, B&G Oysters in the South End and the historic Ye Olde Union Oyster House.
Lunch and dinner options include 2-course lunches for $15.10, 3-course lunches for $20.10 and 3-course dinners for $33.10. Prices exclude beverages, tax and tip. Among the many cuisines that Boston’s Restaurant Week has to offer are fine French, Argentinean and Italian fare. The city is encouraging the use of locally grown ingredients and will be recognizing restaurants that use them in their menus. For more information, visit www.bostonusa.com/restaurant-week.
