Dine in Newton During Summer 2012 Boston Restaurant Week

A list of locations in Newton and Chestnut Hill where you can find deals for the 2012 Boston Restaurant Week.

It's that time of year again -- the Boston Summer Restaurant Week is upon us. 

Twice a year (summer and winter), local eateries participating in Restaurant Week offer lunches and dinners at greatly reduced prices. This year, the Summer Boston Restaurant Week features more than 200 area restaurants.

But just because it has "Boston" in the title doesn't mean you have to head into the big city to take advantage of the discounted meals. 

Six Newton and Chestnut Hill restaurants will be participating in the event, which will run Aug. 19-24 and Aug. 26-31. 

The Restaurant Week menus feature a two-course lunch for $15.12, a three-course lunch for $20.12 or a three-course dinner for $33.12. Each menu is fixed with a set of two or three options for each course. 

Check out and see what the Newton and Chestnut Hill restaurants will be offering:
