The concept started in New York City as a lunch promotion in 1992 and has grown to cities like Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, DC. Seeing as other metropolises and even smaller cities have successful events like this, we knew Wilmington would follow suit. If there is anything our town knows, it’s good food.
In its second year as the Port City’s most successful dining event, Wilmington Restaurant Week was created for those who love to eat! No pretense or snobbery here—it’s all about area chefs serving up delicious cuisine in some of the area’s best venues.
Held each spring and fall, this new culinary tradition features over 30 Cape Fear restaurants, all offering three- and four-course lunch and/or dinner menus at deeply discounted prices. This year we’ve made participation easier than ever. There are no passes to print; diners just show up at the restaurants and request to redeem the WRW offer. This offers the opportunity to explore new dining opportunities or enjoy old favorites. While the menus are here for just a week, diners are sure to get a new favorite stop that might be a little unexpected.
New this year is the official Wilmington Restaurant Week Guide. It’s an easy-to-carry companion to help plan eight days of culinary bliss. From Asian to French, American to Italian, Latin to fondue, Wilmington Restaurant Week has it covered.
Copies of the guide can also be picked up on area newsstands, at participating restaurants, or downloaded [here]
The question remains: What are you waiting for? Hire a babysitter, feed the dog, gather your friends and start expanding your culinary horizons. Wilmington Restaurant Week begins now!
