Restaurant Week GR takes your order
Get your forks and knives ready to dig into the farm-to-fork fare at the heart of this year’s Restaurant Week GR, which kicks off today.
More than 70 restaurants are participating in Restaurant Week this year — each with a special menu designed to show off the best of West Michigan.
Participating restaurants are offering three-course menus for $25 or two-course menus for $25.
Restaurant Week runs from Aug. 14-24.
Instagram photo-taking contest
Experience Grand Rapids is running a photo contest called #MyRWGR during Restaurant Week.
Diners enter the contest by taking a photo of their Restaurant Week experience — food, dining out with friends, cocktails or other imagery from their night out — with Instagram.
Diners who tag their photos with #MyRWGR then have a chance to win one of 10 $50 gift cards for a participating Restaurant Week restaurant.
Winners will be announced Thursday, Aug. 29.
Cocktail of choice
People’s Choice voting for Grand Cocktail 2013 is already underway, and Restaurant week diners have until Aug. 22 to vote for their favorite cocktail online.
There are two cocktail categories for the public vote: Best Creative Cocktail and Best Manhattan.
People’s Choice cocktail winners will be revealed on Aug. 24.
