Restaurants participating in the event will design a menu with lunch and dinner options. Next, the restaurant will choose one of the three price options and the menu is then prepared accordingly.  Price options include: lunch $15/$20/$25 and dinner $28/$33/$38.

From Asian and Argentian flavors to more traditional American food, there are perfectly prepared dishes that work for everyone’s palette. Don’t miss out on creatively designed French, Italian, tapas and sushi dishes prepared and cooked by both award-winning restaurants and hidden local gems.
