Ann Arbor Restaurant Week is Next Week
A few years ago, the Main Street Area Association began holding Restaurant Week. Over the years, Ann Arbor Restaurant Week has grown in popularity. Restaurant Week now encompasses restaurants throughout the Ann Arbor area and is held twice a year. Ann Arbor Restaurant Week for Winter 2015 begins on Sunday, January 18 and runs through Friday, January 23.
My family loves Restaurant Week and we enjoy deciding which restaurants to try each year.
How Restaurant Week Works
During Restaurant Week, participating restaurants offer limited menus for $15 at lunch and $28 at dinner. Lunch is typically two courses while dinner is a 3 course meal. Some of the less expensive restaurants offer 2/$15 at lunch and/or 2/$28 at dinner.
It has been our experience that most restaurants assume you want the Restaurant Week Menu and either present only that menu or present both the Restaurant Week and the regular menu. Occasionally, we have had to request the Restaurant Week Menu.
Selecting Restaurant Week Restaurants
How do we select which restaurants to visit during Restaurant Week? I base a lot of my decision on the Restaurant Week menus as shared on the Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Website. I look for both restaurants that I want to try and favorite restaurants. Then, I check the menu to see if the items on the menu appeal to me. I also check the regular menu to compare the prices of the regular menu and the Restaurant Week Menu.
Past Restaurant Week Experiences
Last summer we went to Neopapalis for Restaurant Week and took advantage of their 3 for $28 dinner deal. The same deal is again available this Restaurant Week. We love Neopapalis and find this to be a great deal.
In June 2010 we had a Date Night at Weber’s for Restaurant Week. Other favorite Restaurant Week visits have included: Conor O’Neill’s, Lena, Cottage Inn, What Crepe?, The Melting Pot, and many others.
Be sure to check out all of the Restaurant Week Menus before making your plans.
