Menus for first summer Denver Restaurant Week to be announced Wednesday
DENVER — Menus for the first summer Denver Restaurant Week will be made available at noon Wednesday. The menus will be posted at DenverRestaurantWeek.com.
More than 200 Denver restaurants will participate in the event Aug. 23-29. Multicourse dinners will be available at a fixed price of $30 (not including tax and tip).
Denver Restaurant Week had been held over two weeks in February and March, but it was changed last year to have one week in the winter and one week in the summer.
“At the request of the participating restaurants, Denver Restaurant Week was expanded this year to offer a summer version, which will feature outdoor dining, fresh locally sourced produce and seasonal menu items,” said Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, which organizes the event.
Menus will be listed by cuisine and neighborhood.
“Planning is an important part of restaurant week,” Scharf said. “Certainly, some restaurants will fill up early at prime dining times, but there are many off-peak dining times that remain available, and of course, we encourage diners to experiment and try new restaurants.”
