As always, participating restaurants will offer three-course prix fixe dinners for $20 or $30 per person, depending on the venue. Continuing the great tradition that began last year, select venues will offer three-course beer or wine pairings for an additional $10 per person. New this year, several restaurants will also offer a $15 appetizer sampler featuring three appetizers with a selection of at least four options.

The Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week offers the perfect opportunity to sample cuisines from around the world. Choices include Moroccan, Italian, Lebanese, and Spanish dishes, just to name a few. Whatever your preference, the Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week is sure to deliver multi-course meals that satisfy your cravings. Arthur Gordon, owner of Irregardless Cafe, says “Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week showcases our city's treasures: amazing eateries offering delicious appetizers, meals and pairings with unique wines.”

Restaurants will participate in the promotion the week of Monday, August 20-Sunday, August 26 during their normal dinner hours. Although no tickets are required, reservations are strongly recommended (when applicable). For your convenience, online reservations can be made at more than half of the venues through OpenTable.

    So many great choices. So many places I've wanted to eat at for awhile. I'd probably go with Blue Mango or Babylon, but I've heard Gravy is awesome, and I'm interested in Beasley's as well.
