The second annual Triangle Restaurant Week will be held across the Triangle on May 11-17. Restaurant Week has been a fixture in other cities for years, where restaurants offer a three-course menu for a low, fixed price. For the Triangle event, lunch will cost $15 and dinner will be $25. Many restaurants typically provide a special “Restaurant Week” menu, but other places allow diners to order off the menu, recognizing that they want their customers to experience the full menu. As I learn more details, I’ll report back here.
Last year, Restaurant Week only included restaurants in Raleigh, but the event has truly expanded by including a number of Durham and Cary-based establishments.
Some of the restaurants that I would consider checking out include Four Square, 18 Seaboard, Jibarra, Il Palio, Frazier’s, and Sitti. There are currently 48 places that are participating this year, which is fantastic growth. Go to the Triangle Restaurant Week website for more information.
