Boston’s semi-annual Restaurant Week is upon us, and there’s no better way to enjoy the city’s hospitality at its finest than by sitting down to a meal.

This year Restaurant Week in Boston runs from August 9-14 and 16-21, and over 200 restaurants are participating, according to Patrick Moscaritolo, head of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, which organizes the event.

Moscaritolo says it’s a chance for the city’s best chefs “to get creative and showcase seasonal New England ingredients, farm fresh herbs and produce, and local seafood all at a tremendous value to diners. It’s also the perfect time to enjoy the region’s outdoor cafes, patios and harborside dining.”

A number of restaurants with live jazz are participating, here is a sampling:
  • Boston's Downtown: Les Zygomates
  • Boston's South End: Beehive Jazz Club and Petit Robert Birstro
  • Boston's Back Bay: Oak Room at Fairmont Copley Plaza, Skipjack's Restaurant and Top of the Hub Restaurant
  • Boston's Waterfront: Lucky's Lounge
  • Cambridge: Upstairs on the Square
  • Brookline: The Fireplace
  • Belmont: Savinos
