GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Restaurant Week Grand Rapids is returning in 2015, giving residents and visitors a chance to “Taste the City.”

The annual event will run from August 12 – August 23 this year and feature 60 area restaurants.  The restaurants will create unique three-course menus for $28.  Some restaurants will offer the meal for two people for $28.  The meal will consist of an appetizer, entree’ and dessert.  Menus are to showcase the creativity of local chefs who will be using local, seasonal ingredients.

Founders Brewing will be assisting restaurants with beer pairings and Great Lakes Wine and Spirits will be helping pairing wine selections.

“We are proud to be able to contribute funding for Secchia Institute for Culinary Education during Restaurant Week Grand Rapids,” said Doug Small, Experience Grand Rapids President in a press release. “Throughout the 12 day event each restaurant donates $1 from every Restaurant Week meal sold to the Restaurant Week Grand Rapids Student Scholarship Fund at GRCC.

The fund, over five years, has raised almost $100,000 from which numerous scholarships have been awarded. It is rewarding to see the talented students from Secchia Institute for Culinary Education joining the ranks of the food service staff in this community. A key component of a destination’s appeal is the quality of its local dining scene. Restaurant Week was created to draw attention to our wonderful earth-to-table dining options in the Grand Rapids area.”
