GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Food lovers will once again have the opportunity have the chance to try a variety of options when restaurant week kicks off later this summer.

Restaurant Week Grand Rapids announced 50 restaurants, along with 10 new participants will be taking part in the event starting August 10th.

In a statement issued Monday, participating restaurants will offer either a 3-course menus for $28 per person or a 3-course menu for 2 people at $28. All menus will showcase the creativity of local chefs who are asked to prepare dishes that are both unique and use local, seasonal ingredients.

“Restaurant Week provides an excellent opportunity for the public to explore new restaurants and sample interesting ingredients and cooking styles,” said Janet Korn, Senior Vice President of Experience Grand Rapids.

Since 2010, restaurants and sponsors provided more than $110,000 to the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education’s Student Scholarship Fund at GRCC. $1 from every meal sold will go towards scholarship funds for students enrolled in the culinary program.

“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/CEO. “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 Grand Rapids was created to draw attention to our wonderful dining options in the Grand Rapids area.”

The event runs August 10 through August 21st.
