Today marks Des Moines’ 10th annual Restaurant Week. Between August 18 and 27, diners can enjoy a special menu at one of 39 area restaurants, with special “Restaurant Week” pricing – two lunches or one three-course dinner for just $28.
The participant-restaurants include East Village neighbors like Alba, Hoq, and the new Republic on Grand (on the top floor of the newly-opened AC Hotel at East 4th and Grand), along with new and old favorites around the metro area.
Chef George Formaro, whose Centro restaurant is a Restaurant Week stalwart, has a great Facebook post this week about the roots of Des Moines’ fine Italian dining traditions, by the way.
The full list of 39 area restaurants and more information about Restaurant Week Des Moines (which is organized and sponsored by DSM Magazine and the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau) is at Des Moines Restaurant Week website.
