DETROIT, Aug. 17, 2009 — Organizers for Detroit Restaurant Week (DRW) today announced that 17 of downtown’s finest dining establishments will make up the roster for the inaugural 10-evening dinner promotion that will run from Sept. 18 through Sept. 27.
“We are very pleased to have downtown Detroit’s top tier restaurants involved in this exciting new promotion,” said Sandy Levine, restaurant liaison for Detroit Restaurant Week. “Our roster of participating establishments is a powerhouse.”
2009 Detroit Restaurant Week will offer specially-priced dining at these fine restaurants:
Andiamo Detroit Riverfront
Atlas Global Bistro
Da Edoardo Foxtown Grille
Detroit Fish Market
Forty-Two Degrees North
Wolfgang Puck Grille
In addition, Detroit’s Eastern Market will offer special Detroit Restaurant Week culinary demonstrations each Saturday morning from August 22 to September 26.
Each restaurant participating in the 10-evening dinner promotion will offer a minimum three-course dinner for the fixed price of $27 (exclusive of beverage, tax and gratuity). Many restaurants will also elect to offer specially-priced wine and beverage pairings to accompany the meal.
Levine noted that restaurant week promotions are extremely successful in other major U.S. cities and he expects the same will hold true for Detroit. Levine participated in four Center City District Restaurant Week events during his years at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Philadelphia. He had been back in Detroit for several years working in the local restaurant industry when the Paxahau Promotions Group tapped him to take the lead on this new event.
