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.
