Back with a new name and pricing options to spotlight the stellar lineup of participating restaurants throughout the Metroplex, DFW Restaurant Week, formerly KRLD Restaurant Week, will once again be supporting the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home.
The culinary festivities will kick-off with Reservation Day on July 15, when the much-anticipated list of this year’s participating restaurants and menus will be unveiled. Diners enjoy a different scene and cuisine every day as they select from more than 125 top restaurants offering delicious three-course prix fixe dinners or the Cadillac Lunch Experience brought to you by Oak Farms Dairy, featuring three-course lunches at many locations. Twenty percent from each meal purchased will be donated to the charity partners. DFW Restaurant Week raised a record $760,000+ for the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home last year alone.
“DFW Restaurant Week is one of our most popular and important fundraisers,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO of North Texas Food Bank. “It’s an ideal way to enjoy a fabulous meal at a deal, while also putting food on tables for children, families and seniors in need. The donation from just one dinner purchased during the campaign will provide up to 27 meals for hungry North Texans.”
Dedicated to offering a variety of fine dining experiences at the hottest restaurants for a great value, DFW Restaurant Week organizers say that the new $45 dinner option provides a way for chefs to feature specially priced menus that are representative of their restaurants’ established high-end cuisine, at a time when the food costs are at a premium. The sixteenth annual DFW Restaurant Week presented by Central Market is also sponsored by Metroplex Cadillac Dealers, GuideLive, Oak Farms Dairy, the Texas Beef Council, Sysco, Fresh Point, Glazers (A by Acacia, Alamos, Edna Valley, Sterling, Barone Fini, Beringer, Josh Cellars, Stages Leap, Deutsch Family Wine and Spirits), CBS Radio and the American Institute of Wine & Food.
