DEARBORN – Food lovers are preparing for a cultural dining experience during the inaugural Dearborn Restaurant Week Feb. 13 to 19, promising to entertain taste buds with more than 20 participating restaurants.
The 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 its regular menu alongside a special Dearborn Restaurant Week menu plating a prix-fixe three-course meal priced at $10, $20 or $30 for either lunch 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 Chairman Sam Abbas, owner of Brome Burger & Shakes and Yogurtopia.
Ordering off the Dearborn Restaurant Week menu is not required.
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,” Downtown Dearborn Executive Director Cristina Sheppard-Decius said. “Dearborn Restaurant Week will guide metro Detroiters to discover the variety, quality, personal service and hometown experience that Dearborn delivers.”
