J Squared - Restaurant Week

J Squared - Restaurant Week 
J SquaredAlways wanted to try the slow braised short ribs at L’Espalier? How about the roasted Scottish Salmon at No. 9 Park? Well if it’s the high-price of these renowned restaurants that’s been stopping you, you no longer have an excuse to stay away. That’s because it is restaurant week here in Boston, which (lucky for us) actually lasts ten whole days. All this week and next (not including weekends) local restaurants are offering special menus that focus on signature dishes at an incredible price. A two course lunch will run you 15.11 and a three course dinner just $33.11. There are dozens upon dozens of restaurants participating, so we have tapped our resident insiders, J Squared—Jan Saragoni and Jared Bowen—to comb through all those special menus and pluck out a few gems for you.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
