Food lovers prepare yourselves for a cultural dining experience as the first annual Dearborn Restaurant Week comes to Downtown Dearborn, Michigan, February 13-19, 2017, promising to entertain your taste buds with more than 20 participating restaurants.
This weeklong event will spotlight the wide palette of local cuisine found in Dearborn, exposing restaurant goers to hidden gems, new-to-the-scene hot spots and the opportunity to rediscover longtime favorites.
Throughout the week, each participating Dearborn restaurant will have their regular menu alongside a special Dearborn Restaurant Week menu plating a pre-fixed 3-course meal priced at $10, $20 or $30 for either lunch and/or dinner, and for one or two people.
“Menus will include new dishes that represent the restaurant’s style of cooking or a medley of the restaurant’s existing plates,” said Downtown Dearborn’s Promotions Committee Chairperson Sam Abbas, owner of Brome Burger & Shakes and Yogurtopia. Ordering off the Dearborn Restaurant Week menu is encouraged, but not required.
From California to Rhode Island to Michigan, restaurant weeks across the nation have sparked a fresh interest in local cuisine.
“We want to bring to the forefront Dearborn’s diverse tapestry of people, places and flavors,” said Cristina Sheppard-Decius, Downtown Dearborn Executive Director. “Dearborn Restaurant Week will guide Metro Detroiters to discover the variety, quality, personal service and hometown experience that Dearborn delivers.”
