It’s that time again! Detroit Restaurant Week returns Friday, April 19, and runs through Sunday, April 28. Nineteen of Detroit’s finest restaurants will once again offer specially-priced three-course dinners for only $30 per person.
The Detroit Restaurant Week concept was created in 2009 as a partnership project between Paxahau Event Productions, the Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP) and its partner organizations in Midtown, Corktown, Eastern Market and New Center to support and promote fine dining restaurants in greater downtown Detroit. Since its inception in 2009, almost 230,000 people from across metro Detroit and beyond have enjoyed Detroit Restaurant Week, generating over $4 million in sales.
This year, three new establishments have joined the spring event, including Greektown Casino Hotel’s flagship Brizola, the freshly-updated formerly Mosaic space Santorini Estiatorio in Greektown, and Wolfgang Pucks Pizzeria & Cucina at the MGM Grand Detroit.
THE MICHIGAN CHRONICLE
Wolfgang Puck Pizzeria & Cucina’s menu includes rustic and cozy Italian classics like Tuscan White Bean Soup, Antipasti Salad and Hand Made Fettuccine with Wild Field Mushrooms and Truffle Oil. “Our Detroit Restaurant Week menu is meant to showcase a wide sampling of the food we offer,” said Executive Chef Marc Djozlija. “The restaurant opened last November as a casual Italian destination with wood oven baked pizzas and handmade pastas. Its bar offers domestic and international beers and a comprehensive selection of wines, many from Italy, which complement the menu.
Newcomer Brizola is set to provide a fabulous and distinctive food experience. The signature restaurant, located just off the casino floor, features a progressive wine menu, including new and old world wines, a large bar complemented with bold design and city views. The menu boasts mouthwatering cuts of prime beef, the freshest seafood and decadent side dishes and desserts. Brizola’s General Manager Frederick Nikolovski Amady says, “We look forward to the DRW crowds and are excited to be apart of all the action this year.
Detroit Restaurant Week is presented by Shinola, the Detroit-based manufacturer of premium Detroit-built wristwatches and bicycles as well as other consumer products. Quicken Loans returns as supporting sponsor.
