What is Early Access?
Restaurant Week has always been a Monday to Sunday 7-day celebration.
In its early years, there was a Kickoff Party held on the Thursday beforehand as a lead-in to the week. “Bonus Days” fill the void in between by allowing the restaurants to opt to start their specials immediately following the kickoff party. This means that restaurants participating in #BonusDays are offering their special menus for a total of 10 days.
In 2016, this concept was renamed “Early Access” to better describe that the menus are available EARLY as a lead in to the week-long celebration.
