Maine Restaurant Week is about to kick off, it runs March 1st through the 12th. Make your dinner reservations now, and consider spending the night. There are a great group of inns, hotels and hostels welcoming foodies to the party. Maine Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity for a getaway, whether it's a vacation or a staycation.

Menus are being added daily to the huge list of Maine restaurants on the Maine Restaurant Week website. This is the perfect chance to check out a spot that you've been wanting to try for a while. Prices are amazing and chefs are all about impressing you and getting you to come back to dine with them on the regular.

M.R.W. is also a way to show your favorite restaurants some much needed love during their slowest time of the year. It's up to us locals to keep all of these talented chefs and unique restaurants afloat during our long, cold winter. Resist the urge to stay in, get out there and let them see your smiling face. Leave your server a big tip and remember to re-button your pants before exiting all fat and happy and promising yourself that you'll be back soon.
