NORTH TEXAS – The countdown is on for the 17th annual DFW Restaurant Week presented by Central Market, and this year the event features a new twist.
For the first time, diners can get a first taste of featured food and cocktails at the festive DFW Restaurant Week First Course Kick-Off Party, set for August 7. Information is available at FirstCourseDFW.com.
DFW Restaurant Week’s goal is to serve-up a combined $800,000 for the charity beneficiaries, Lena Pope and the North Texas Food Bank, to help children and families in need. DFW Restaurant Week, formerly known as KRLD Restaurant Week, was founded by NewsRadio 1080 KRLD in 1997.
“DFW Restaurant Week is our largest single fundraiser, offering supporters the opportunity to dine out for a cause and place food on the table for hungry families,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO, North Texas Food Bank. “The donation we receive from each meal purchased during the campaign will provide between 15 and 27 meals for hungry North Texans.”
North Texas diners can enjoy a different scene and cuisine every day as they select from more than 125 top restaurants offering three-course prix fixe dinners for either $35 or $45. The Cadillac Lunch Experience. sponsored by Oak Farms Dairy, is another option, and it features three-course lunches for $25, at select locations. Twenty percent from each meal purchased will be donated to one of the charity partners. The list of participating restaurants and menus is available at DFWRestaurantWeek.com.
