Several times a year restaurants around Boston prepare special pre-fixe menus as part of Dine Out Boston. Diners can get a multi-course meal priced at $22-32 for lunch and $36-46 for dinner. It’s a great way to try new cuisines, or to sample special-edition dishes at your favorite haunts. If you capture a photo of your meal and tag it #DineOutBoston on Instagram, you’ll be entered to win a $100 restaurant gift card. Don’t forget to save room for dessert.
