Annual DFW Restaurant Week hits August 15-21 for Good Eats

If you live in the Dallas-Ft.Worth area, it would be wise to start your diet now because DWF Restaurant Week is right around the corner. From August 15-21, the 19th Annual Restaurant Week offers discounts to 125 different restaurants in the area as a North Texas Charity Event.

How this event works is that the selected eateries prepare a three-course prix fixe menu for a set price of either $35 or $45 for dinner and many of the venues will also include two courses for lunch. Then 20 percent of the cost of the meal is donated to benefit families and children with the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope, which is an organization that provides counseling and education for children under 18.

A new event starting this year is a two-day, kick-off with the DFW Restaurant Week Food and Wine Festival. There is only one location, which is in Downtown Dallas at the Main Street Gardens from 5-10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. During these two days, top restaurants will display their culinary expertise, which includes domestic and international wines and new creative cocktails in the menu to set your dinner off the chart.

Here are a few tips so that you enjoy Restaurant Week to the fullest.

1. Make a reservation to ensure your table. These 125 restaurants will also be serving other customers, so remember to ask for the Restaurant Week pre fixe meal.
2. Be sure of the dates. Many of the restaurants will begin a few days earlier and then remain with the specials until September 4. The list of restaurants will identify the pre and post dates.
3. Get a little extra by shopping Central Market stores and receiving a voucher for a fourth course!

DFW is going to be another fabulous week of delicious wining and dining and it’s all for a great cause. Get hungry, and come out several times to your favorite eateries while the cost is reasonable.
