It’s time for diners to make their selections for North Texas’ popular summer food and wine event, the 16th annual DFW Restaurant Week presented by Central Market, which begins Sunday.
With a new name and pricing options to spotlight the stellar lineup of participating restaurants throughout the Metroplex, DFW Restaurant Week will again benefit the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home. Diners must decide which restaurants they’ll choose from the list of this year’s 125 participating restaurants and menus detailed at DFWRestaurantWeek.com.
Diners can enjoy a different scene and cuisine every day as they select from top restaurants offering three-course prix fixe dinners for $35, the $45 level at select restaurants or the Cadillac Lunch Experience featuring three-course lunches for just $25 at many locations. Twenty percent from each meal purchased will be donated to charity partners, the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or the Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth.
Formerly knows as KRLD Restaurant Week, the dining event serves as a major charity fundraiser supporting the regional community, raising a record $760,000 last year for the charities. Those funds represented a 9 percent increase in funds raised over the previous year.
“DFW Restaurant Week is one of our most popular and important fundraisers,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO of theNorth 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.”
Todd A. Landry, executive director, Lena Pope Home, says DFW Restaurant Week makes an enormous impact on funding and awareness for the organization’s work helping Tarrant County children and families. “We love the excitement of Reservation Day when the restaurants are revealed and our supporters begin to tell us where they will be dining for DFW Restaurant Week.”
