Let the countdown begin for North Texas’ hottest summer dining event, the 18th annual DFW Restaurant Week. The official list of participating restaurants will be unveiled on Reservation Day, Monday, July 13, and diners may begin booking August reservations at more than 125 restaurants. DFW Restaurant Week supports the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas and Lena Pope in Fort Worth, with proceeds raised from participating restaurants benefiting local children and families in need. The campaign will launch with the First Course: DFW Restaurant Week Kick-Off Party at a stylish new location, Sixty Five Hundred, on Aug. 6, with tickets available starting that day.
“We’re excited for the best DFW Restaurant Week yet, with newly restructured features like the Cadillac Lunch Experience and numerous opportunities for diners to support our single largest fundraiser,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO, North Texas Food Bank. “Each dollar we receive from a purchased meal provides three meals for hungry North Texans.”
Diners can enjoy a different scene and cuisine each day as they select from more than 125 top restaurants offering delicious three-course prix fixe dinners for either $35 or $45, or the newly revamped Cadillac Lunch Experience, featuring new two-course lunches for just $20 at select locations. Twenty percent from each meal purchased will be donated to one of the charity partners in either Dallas or Fort Worth.
