Downtown Duluth’s foodie-frenzy returns this month with “Eat Downtown - Duluth Restaurant Week.”
This campaign, now in its fourth year, will kick off April 14 and provide diners with the opportunity to order from a specialized menu to enjoy a multi-course meal at one fixed price. The Greater Downtown Council is pleased to present this eight-day extravaganza with the help of our sponsors and 20 participating restaurants, where you can cash in on a $10 lunch or $20 dinner.
At a somewhat slower time of the season, this campaign proves to be a nice little economic boost for our area local restaurants, and it’s a real deal for diners who are looking for a different twist to lunch or a fun night out. Across the country, restaurant week campaigns have been proven success stories for downtown communities and the trend continues to grow. It’s an opportunity to put the spotlight on dining establishments in our Downtown Waterfront and it allows participating restaurants to enjoy the benefit of teaming up with collective marketing. In the end, it’s an easy way for residents to show their support of our local restaurants, while getting a great sampling of the various cuisines.
As part of the Eat Downtown - Duluth Restaurant Week campaign, diners will find participating restaurants offering multi-course fixed-price menus April 14-21. Lunches will be available at a $10 price point, and dinner will be offered at $20 (a few are fixing the price at $10 for both lunch and dinner). And with the following list of participating restaurants, we know you will walk away satisfied and ready to come back for more! On board for the Fourth Annual Eat Downtown - Duluth Restaurant Week are Bellisio’s Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar, Black Water Lounge at Greysolon, Canal Park Brewing Company, Dubh Linn Pub, Fitger’s Brewhouse, Grandma’s Saloon & Grill in Canal Park, Green Mill, Grizzly’s in Canal Park, Hanabi, Midi Restaurant, Northern Waters Smokehaus, Pickwick Restaurant & Pub, Pizza Lucé, Restaurant 301, Sir Benedict’s Tavern on the Lake, 7 West Taphouse, Tycoons Alehouse & Eatery, VaBene Beraducci’s Caffe, Valentini’s Vicino Lago and Zeitgeist Arts Café.
This promotion is yet another example of why Downtown Duluth is a true destination! I encourage you to start scheduling those lunch meetings now or plan on a date night, as you won’t want to miss out. For more details, including restaurant menus, please visit www.downtownduluth.com.
