Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week is back. The weeklong culinary celebration promoting downtown Raleigh’s vibrant restaurant scene begins Monday, August 18 and lasts until Sunday, August 24.
42 restaurants in the downtown Raleigh vicinity are offering three-course prix-fixe menus at $20 and $30. And, new to DRW this year, select restaurants like Babylon, Kimbap Café, Sono, Jimmy V’s Osteria + Bar, Tuscan Blu and Mo’s Diner are additionally offering an “Elite” experience option whereby dinner will also include additional courses beyond the prerequisite three and will also include drink pairings for $65 a person.
If you are a fan of snapping foodie pictures of dinner with your mobile device, the Downtown Raleigh Alliance (organizers of Downtown Raleigh Restaurant Week) are holding an Instagram contest throughout the restaurant week. Diners that use the hashtag #myDRRW throughout the restaurant week have a chance to win one out of five $50 gift cards to a participating restaurant.
So, what can diners expect for DRW? Check out six tantalizing sample prix-fixe menus from participating downtown Raleigh restaurants.
