A true dining destination with more than 75 restaurants in its mere 13.1 square miles, Dunwoody offers everything from a white-table cloth experience to come-as-you-are-casual. With so many options, it can be difficult to find the time to experience all of these establishments.
For this reason, in 2012 the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Dunwoody formed Dunwoody Restaurant Week, a seven-day showcase of some of the best dishes and desserts at Dunwoody restaurants. All Dunwoody restaurants are invited to participate in this event and feature some of their favorite dishes in a prix-fixe menu.
In its second year, Dunwoody Restaurant Week will take place June 22-29 across 25 participating restaurants. Throughout the week, food enthusiasts will have the opportunity to choose from $10 or $15 lunch menus that will offer lunch entrée options including an appetizer or dessert or from $20 or $30 dinner menus that will offer an appetizer, dinner entrée, and dessert option at each establishment. Patrons are encouraged to mention the Restaurant Week menu if it’s not offered.
This year’s Restaurant Week includes some of the area’s long-time favorites and newly-opened eateries. Participating restaurants for 2013 include: Alison’s Restaurant, Alon’s Bakery and Market, Another Broken Egg Café, Café Intermezzo, Carbonara Trattoria, Chili’s Bar and Grill (Perimeter location), Chuy’s Mexican Restaurant, Dunwoody Bistro, d’Vine Wine Bar, Eclipse di Luna, El Azteca, East 48th Street Market, Firebird Rotisserie and Sports, Goldfish, La Grotta Ravinia, Marco’s Pizza, Marlow’s Tavern, McCormick and Schmick’s, McKendrick’s Steakhouse, Mimi’s Café, O’Brian’s Tavern, Old Hickory House, Sage Woodfire Tavern, Twisted Oak at the Marriott, and Vino Venue.
“McKendrick’s Steakhouse feels strongly about being an active participant within the Dunwoody community,” said CEO Doug McKendrick. “Restaurant Week was one of our first thoughts when the city and the Convention and Visitors Bureau were formed. Restaurant week allows the the opportunity for many people in the Dunwoody/Perimeter area to revisit and enjoy the many great restaurants in our area. We look forward to the week and the opportunity to introduce McKendricks’s Steakhouse to both new and old customers.”
Many of these places you’ve probably driven past without noticing, some you may consider yourself a regular, and others you’ve wanted to try. Now is your opportunity to explore a new place, a new dish, or just revisit an old favorite. Dunwoody Restaurant Week is the perfect time to make dinner plans with friends, invite new neighbors to dinner, or take a colleague to lunch.
