KRLD Restaurant Week - Reservations Open!

Reservations are currently underway for the annual KRLD Restaurant Week happening August 15-21.

Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant counties are all represented this year. Some of the highlights include longtime supporters Abacus, Del Frisco’s and Stephan Pyles; newcomers like Tei-An and Nosh; and other popular establishments, including: III Forks, Al Biernat’s, Bijoux, Bonnell’s Restaurant, Brownstone, Fearing’s – Ritz Carlton, Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck, GRACE, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, Parigi, Shinsei, The French Room – The Adolphus, and The Mansion.

This year, over 125 regional hot spots across DFW are participating in KRLD Restaurant Week and some will extend by one or even two full weeks to Aug. 28 or even until Sept. 4. This tasty tradition -- which showcases the area’s thriving culinary scene -- features three-course prix fixe dinners priced at only $35/person (tax, tip and drinks billed separately). For every prix fixe meal purchased, participating restaurants will make a $7.00 donation in support of the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth to benefit families in need. Last year alone, the Food Bank received over $489,000 from the effort. KRLD Restaurant Week is the ideal time to treat yourself while helping others!

“This is one of our most popular fundraisers since it enables diners to treat themselves while helping others, and encourages them to venture out and potentially discover new ‘go to’ establishments,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO, North Texas Food Bank. “Giving back never tasted as good as it does each August. Every meal consumed during this timeframe enables our organization to put food on the table for area children, families and seniors especially with summer being the hungriest time of the year.” This year’s fundraising goal is $650,000 dollars, which is nearly $50,000 more than the record amount generated in 2010 from diner patronage at participating restaurants.
