Restaurant Week GR will kick off in three weeks, August 8 through August 19, for 12-days of creative dining out and culinary exploration by the public. Each of the restaurants participating have created tantalizing menus that the public can view online at

Diners are encouraged to start making their Restaurant Week GR plans now.  A list of the participating locations and their special Restaurant Week GR menus are available at:

In addition to 2-Course menus for lunch and dinner, a new dining option has been added called “Chef’s Choice” which allows open-ended chef designed multi-course menus at various price points at select restaurant locations.

Each restaurant has been given the opportunity to offer one or more of the following options for this year’s event: 

  • Two courses for $15 per person (available lunch and dinner) 
  • Two courses for $25 per person (dinner) 
  • Chef’s Choice for over $25 per person (dinner)  

RWGR not only promotes the Greater Grand Rapids culinary scene but has also provided over $143,000 to students through an endowed scholarship fund at the Grand Rapids Community College Secchia Institute for Culinary Education. Participating locations each donate $1 for every Restaurant Week GR meal sold at their establishment.

Restaurant Week GR diners are encouraged to share their #RWGR meals on Instagram. Those people who submit impressive food photographs of their dining out experiences could be selected to win gift cards from participating restaurants and may be featured in an Experience Grand Rapids blog post.
