DEARBORN – For a diverse, cultural dining experience showcasing what the city has to offer, food lovers need look no further than the second annual Dearborn Restaurant Week.

The weeklong event returns Feb. 12 to 18 promising to entertain taste buds and discerning palates with more than 35 participating restaurants.

The wide array of local cuisine found in Dearborn as part of Restaurant Week will expose restaurant goers to hidden gems, new-to-the-scene hot spots and the opportunity to rediscover longtime favorites.

Throughout the week, each participating restaurant will have its regular menu alongside a special Dearborn Restaurant Week menu plating a prix-fixe, three-course meal priced at $10, $20 or $30 for either lunch or dinner, and for one or two people.

“Menus will include new dishes that represent the restaurant’s style of cooking or a medley of the restaurant’s existing plates,” said Downtown Dearborn Promotions Committee Chairperson Sam Abbas, owner of Brome Modern Eatery and Yogurtopia.

Ordering from the Dearborn Restaurant Week menu is not required.
