Restaurant Week offers great deals on great meals
From hearty breakfasts to elegant dinners, many of Nashville’s favorite eateries will offer special prices and menus during Restaurant Week, Monday, January 17 through Sunday, January 23.
The event is sponsored by Nashville Originals, a nonprofit association of 45 locally owned independent restaurants in the Nashville area, as a way to spotlight Nashville’s unique local dining establishments.
“We think this is a terrific opportunity for Nashville diners to try new restaurants and revisit familiar favorites while enjoying tremendous prices,” said Rick Bolsom, Nashville Originals board president. “Many of our members are creating special new menus for Restaurant Week, and this is a great chance to try something new.”
Many participating restaurants are offering three-course dinners featuring an appetizer or salad, an entrée and a dessert for $20.11. At other member restaurants, three-course dinners for $30.11 are on the menu. Joining this month’s Restaurant Week are new members Rumours East, Puckett’s Nashville, Blind Pig 55 and Fish & Co.
A few examples of Restaurant Week specials: Jackson’s is offering a small plate, main and dessert for $20.11; DrinkHaus is serving a different specialty coffee drink each day for $2.11. Noshville’s three locations are featuring two “We Dare Ya” Breakfasts with eggs, sausage, bacon, griddle cakes, potato cakes or oatmeal and a beverage for $20.11 or lunch for two for $20.11. Lamb Shank with Pappardelle, Pork T-Bone with Crushed Yukon Gold Potato and Pan Sauce and Shrimp & Grits highlight Red Pony’s three-course ($30.11) Restaurant Week menu.
