It’s that time of year again... For the 22nd year running, DFW Restaurant Week is back from August 2nd - September 1st and you can officially start making reservations TODAY!
If you aren’t familiar, DFW Restaurant Week is a unique time in Dallas that gives the community a chance to enjoy lunch and dinner menus all around the city while raising money for local charities. According to the official DFW Restaurant Week website, last year, just under $800,000 was raised throughout almost 90,000 reservations setting a new record. Each restaurant participates for a different length of time so you will want to pay close attention to the dates on the list. The majority will participate the entire month, a few just the preview weekend, and other will even extend into the week of Labor Day.
This year over 150 restaurants are participating and proceeds benefit North Texas Food Bank & Lena Pope Home. Restaurants fill up quick for reservations, be sure you start booking sooner rather than later.
To be sure your visit counts towards the cause, when you book your reservation and arrive, make sure to mention you are there for DFW Restaurant Week. (There will be a special three-course prix fixe menu for you!) Some restaurants offer a free additional “Fourth Course” dinner menu item if you have a Fourth Course Certificate. Certificates can be obtained by spending, $10 at a FedEx office Location in DFW.
Get ready to eat, drink and be merry all while donating to a good cause. Here's the list of this year's restaurants!
