January 20-26, 2023.  Restaurant Week Reimagined.

This isn't your typical Restaurant Week.

We've ask our participating locations to come up with new and different menu items for you to try or showcase their most unique items.  Whether its entrees, drinks, or desserts, our locations are letting their creativity loose with new menu items for you to try.

And, when you're done, make sure to submit your ratings to our web site.  We share the feedback with our restaurants to help improve there already-amazing offerings that will hopefully make their permanent menus!
