Frequently Asked Questions
Do attendees need a ticket to attend the event?
No tickets are required; however, reservations are highly recommended as restaurants fill up quickly.
What are restaurants offering during Restaurant Week?
Most participating restaurants will present a prix-fixe dinner option consisting of three courses (appetizer, entrée and dessert). Menus are $15, $25, $35, and $45 per person, depending upon the restaurant. Prices do not include beverages, tax and gratuity. Many restaurants may also offer a specially priced, two-course lunch option.
Does the menu include a drink?
Certain restaurants may offer wine or a drink within this offer, but in most cases, beverages, as well as tax and gratuities, are not included. Many restaurants will feature specially priced wines for the event.
What are the prices for lunch?
Lunch prices are up to individual restaurants. Click on the restaurant's name to view their menu and lunch price.
How do I experience a restaurant participating in Restaurant Week?
Some 100 restaurants throughout New Mexico are expected to participate in three consecutive Restaurant Weeks. To make a reservation, click on the restaurant and you can connect with their website, Open Table (if they are a member), or find their phone number to call them directly. Due to the expected popularity of this event, advance reservations are strongly encouraged, but walk-ins are appreciated. There is no guarantee that walk-in guests will be accommodated.
Is tipping included in the price?
No, tips are not included, but servers work especially hard during Restaurant Week and depend upon tips. A 20 percent gratuity is suggested, but the amount is entirely up to you.
What if a restaurant's prix-fixe menu doesn't show a vegetarian option?
Simply ask the restaurant for their vegetarian offering. All chefs will gladly prepare vegetarian meals and are happy to accommodate any other dietary preferences.
Do you have to order off the prix-fixe menu during New Mexico Restaurant Week?
No. Most participating restaurants will be offering their standard menus as well. Diners may order a la carte from the regular menu or choose the three-course, prix-fixe menu.
