Twenty-two North End/Waterfront restaurants are participating in 2018 Dine Out Boston which takes place March 18-23 and March 25-30. The event is presented by the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau (GBCVB) and sponsored by American Express.

Celebrating its 17th year of providing diners an opportunity to enjoy the region’s exquisite culinary offerings and restaurants the chance to bring in new guests, the event showcases the North End’s restaurant scene.

During the two weeks of Dine Out Boston, diners have numerous choices as they enjoy the finest dining coupled with significant savings. The program’s flexible pricing structure benefits restaurants and guests alike.

Restaurants can customize their lunch and dinner menus by choosing price-points: lunch for $15, $20 or $25 and dinner for $28, $33 or $38. Restaurants can offer as many courses as they desire at their selected price.

Social media mavens are once again invited to share #dineoutboston pictures on Instagram for a chance to win $100 gift cards to participating restaurants.          Follow GBCVB social channels to learn more. The GBCVB is also launching a Snapshot account during Dine Out Boston this year. Diners and restaurants will be encouraged to share their experiences on Snapchat and the Bureau will be posting to Snapchat from Dine Out Boston restaurants throughout the two-week period.

This March, the GBCVB is also excited to announce a partnership with Lyft that will offer new Lyft users $5 off their first 2 rides to or from a participating Dine Out Boston restaurant during the 2 weeks of the program. Download the Lyft app and enter code DINEOUT18 to take advantage of this deal. Current Lyft subscribers can take advantage of 25% off one ride to or from a participating restaurant during Dine Out Boston.

“Dine Out Boston spotlights Boston as one of America’s premier culinary destinations, providing patrons from Boston and afar with a unique opportunity to enjoy exceptional value, variety and hospitality in Greater Boston restaurants,” said Patrick B. Moscaritolo, President & CEO of the GBCVB. “Diners are invited to take advantage of these restaurant deals while also taking in seasonal activities-a concert, theatrical performance, museum exhibition, or a game at the Garden, coupled with a Dine Out Boston meal, makes for a classic Boston experience!”

Since 2012, the GBCVB has used this dining program to give back to different local Boston non-profits each year. To date, over $375,000 has been raised for charities through the online auction component of DOB. The charitable partner for March 2018 is the Boston Park Rangers.
