Eggs Benedict at Eastern Standard. What better way to start the day?

We all wait patiently (and anxiously) for the arrival of our city’s Restaurant Week, during which we can dine out at terrific discounts. Maybe, though, it’s time to stop waiting and start thinking about taking advantage of Restaurant Weeks in other cities. You don’t have to take weeks — or even days — off to do it. Just ask Philadelphia food blogger Mary Bigham, of WCDish and her friend of Danielle Friel of Iron Hill Brewery. Southwest Airlines provided the flights to get these foodie friends from Philadelphia to Boston and back again in just a day’s time — with lots of stops for fine dining and more Restaurant Week Boston-inspired fun — in between.

You can follow their adventures on Twitter via our @OpenTable_BOS handle as we chat with them throughout the day and drool longingly over their food photography! They’ve already had eggs benny and French toast at Eastern Standard (I only have coffee, so thanks for rubbing that in, ladies. No, really.). Stops along the way will include Parker’s Restaurant at the Omni Parker House and dinner at Barbara Lynch’s trattoria Sportello, where they’ll meet up with area food bloggers for what I’m sure will be a pretty amazing meal.

Stay tuned on Twitter for more highlights from their Restaurant Week Boston daycation — and book your Restaurant Week Boston tables today!
