Detroit Restaurant Week is making its return in 2019, offering residents an opportunity to taste test restaurants sprinkled throughout several Detroit neighborhoods.

On Thursday, DRW announced 25 restaurants that will be participating this year, including the return of favorites such as Roast, Cliff Bell’s, Grey Ghost, La Dolce Vita, and Central Kitchen + Bar. The event will also offer a slew of new restaurants including Lumen Detroit, The Peterboro, Empire Kitchen & Cocktails, and the Grille Room at the Detroit Club.

Taking place Friday, Feb. 22 through Sunday, March 3, Detroit Restaurant Week intends to “promote fine dining restaurants in greater downtown Detroit.” Organizers claim that the event has generated over 8.6 million dollars in sales for participating restaurants to date.

This year’s event features three-course dinners for $39 per person and menus at certain destinations for $29 per person. Those offering the lower price-point dinner include Common Pub in Midtown, Gather in Eastern Market, and La Noria Bistro in Southwest Detroit, among others.
