The eagerly anticipated “Reservation Day” kick-off for the 15th Anniversary of KRLD Restaurant Week presented by Central Market began yesterday -- Monday, July 16. The heat is on to book sizzling dining deals at over 125 regional hot spots opening up tables, and currently accepting reservations for this popular gastronomic-dining event supporting the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home.

Steakhouse, Shinsei, The French Room – The Adolphus, and The Mansion.

Helpful Reservation Tips:
To book a spot, diners can call the desired establishment and request a “KRLD Restaurant Week” reservation, or do so online at CBSDFW.com by following the link to OpenTable. Book early and be flexible; remember that popular places fill up fast and that smaller groups are often easier to seat. Dining out on a weeknight during off-peak evenings like Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday may also help ensure a prime table and time slot. Look for the many restaurants extending their participation by one or even two full weeks -- through August 26 or even September 2 -- opening up additional reservation opportunities.

Select Spots Now Serving Lunch!
Extending the tradition of KRLD Restaurant Week’s tasty three-course prix fixe dinners priced at only $35 per person (tax, tip and drinks billed separately), diners can also now satisfy their hunger for a fabulous mid-day meal. To celebrate 15 years of fine dining, consumers can test-drive the new Cadillac Lunch Experience sponsored by Oak Farms Dairy in 2012. Spotlighting some of North Texas’ hottest lunch locales, 35 select establishments will also feature a special three-course lunch menu for just $25 a person (tax, tip and drinks billed separately) during their participation in KRLD Restaurant Week.

For every prix fixe meal purchased, participating restaurants will donate a portion ($7.00 from every dinner and $5.00 from each lunch) to either the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth. The fundraising goal for this year’s event is $750,000 dollars, aiming to raise $50,000 over the record amount generated by diners in 2011 in support of our community.
