Restaurant Week 2018 begins next Wednesday, August 8, in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Actually, I should say, Restaurant Weeks, because it is 12-days of culinary deliciousness.

Over 70 restaurants in the Greater Grand Rapids Area will participate with each  of the restaurants have created tantalizing menus that the everyone can view online at

In addition to 2-Course menus for lunch and dinner, a new dining option has been added called “Chef’s Choice” which allows open-ended chef designed multi-course menus at various price points at select restaurant locations.

Each restaurant has been given the opportunity to offer one or more of the following options for this year’s event:

• Two courses for $15 per person (available lunch and dinner)
• Two courses for $25 per person (dinner)
• Chef’s Choice for over $25 per person (dinner)

The idea behind the new options was based on customer and restaurant staff feedback and to serve the interests of summer dining patrons. During some evenings diners asked for more casual summer options, as well as, a variety of multi-course options. The three options allow diners more opportunity for frequent dining out throughout the event.


Restaurant Week GR diners are encouraged to share their #RWGR meals on Instagram. Those people who submit impressive food photographs of their dining out experiences could be selected to win gift cards from participating restaurants and may be featured in an Experience Grand Rapids blog post.

It's time to start making your Restaurant Week GR plans now. A list of the participating locations and their special Restaurant Week GR menus are available at:
