“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.

Steak is but one item from the menus of more than 100 restaurants participating in Dallas-Fort Worth Restaurant Week.

Decisions, decisions.

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.”

Blow off the diet. Forget the budget. It’s time to dine out.

Beginning this month eating in some of North Texas’ most prestigious restaurants will also mean helping two area non-profit organizations. KRLD Restaurant Week has adopted the theme of “Dining Out’s a Good Deed, Helping Families in Need” for the event that kicks off mid-month. The preview is set for Aug. 14 through 16, followed by the official Restaurant Week Aug. 17 through 23.

North Texas’ top restaurants participate annually, offering special menus, while supporting local charities. Prix fixe meals, set at only $35 per person with tax, tip and drinks billed separately,make this an opportunity to try some of the region’s finest restaurants.

During Restaurant Week, $7 of every meal will be donated to either the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or the Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth. Last year 75,000 reservations were booked and more than $430,000 was raised.

At some establishments, consumers can pay $40 per person for a special house drink using 10 Cane Rum or Grand Mariner. Additionally, some restaurants will extend the fixed-price menus into September.
