Restaurant Week Grand Rapids (RWGR) announced today that nearly 70 restaurants, including 10+ new participants, in the Greater Grand Rapids Area will take part in
Restaurant Week GR 2017 taking place August 9 – 20, 2017.
New to the event this year are over 25 participating locations that will be offering a lunch option. Lunch will include 2 courses for $14.
“By adding lunch, we are inviting more individuals to dine out and ‘Taste the City’ during Restaurant Week,” said Kate Herron, Director of Marketing for Experience Grand Rapids. “Going into our eighth year, we are excited to add something new to entice more people to check out our participating restaurants.”
During RWGR, most of the participating restaurants will continue to offer dinner options with either a 3-course menu for $28 per person or 2-people who can dine for $28.
RWGR not only promotes the Greater Grand Rapids culinary scene, but also helps selected students from The Secchia Institute for Culinary Education with educational support. Since 2010, Restaurant Week participating restaurants and sponsors have contributed over $110,000 to the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education’s Student Scholarship Fund at GRCC. Participating restaurants donate $1 for every Restaurant Week meal sold to the scholarship fund, which then provides grants to selected students within the Institute’s culinary program.
