Mark your calendars and get hungry.
Triangle Restaurant Week, which seeks to promote the area’s thriving culinary scene, is June 5 to June 11. Across the Triangle, almost 90 restaurants will offer fixed three-course menus for lunch and dinner at set prices.
Restaurants, from institutions to those that have just opened, often offer new dishes, or create a menu that shows off their classic selections. It’s the perfect time to hit up an old favorite or to sample a new restaurant at a reasonable price.
Pricing for the event is $15 for a 3-course lunch, and $20, $25, $30 or $35 for a 3-course dinner. The price is per person and doesn’t include beverages, tax or gratuity.
Triangle Restaurant Week is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2017. For the winter edition, organizers broke a record when it hit a milestone of 100 participating restaurants.
This go-round, there are some new restaurants joining the mix.
▪ Seasons 52 on Glenwood Avenue near Crabtree Valley Mall. The restaurant has a seasonally changing menu with food prepared in a brick oven or over an open-fire grill.
▪ So.ca in Cameron Village. The restaurant, from the owners of Bu.ku, serves small plates, tapas and entrees with a Latin-Caribbean twist.
▪ Vidrio on Glenwood Avenue in the Glenwood South area. Look for Mediterranean-inspired small plates and entrees to share.
▪ Dashi in downtown. A Japanese ramen shop with small plates and an extensive sake list.
