By Jeffrey Buck

If you’re a fan of dining out at upscale restaurants at discounted rates, then you’re in luck, as over the next three weeks some of the finest dining establishments in metro Detroit will showcase their wares to patrons during three separate restaurant weeks.


Kicking off first is Troy Restaurant Week with opportunities to dine at a list of pre-selected restaurants from March 20th - 25th. The list includes restaurants such as Benihana, McCormick & Schmick's, Ocean Prime, The Capital Grille and Kona Grill, just to name a few.Though each restaurant will feature a unique menu to choose from patrons can expect prices for lunch to be $15 and dinner specials to be either $25 or $35 per person.The week-long event is put on by the Troy Chamber of Commerce and this year's charity partner is the Community Housing Network.More information, as well as menus can be found by clicking here.SPACE

Following Troy will be Royal Oak Restaurant Week starting on March 25th and lasting till April 2nd. The nine-day event will offer those looking to dine at some of Royal Oak’s hottest restaurants a fixed three-course-meal menu. The discounted rates will rang between $15 and $25 per person. These prices do not include gratuity, tax or drinks.

This is always a good time to check out restaurants that you might otherwise ignore because of the prices. The drawback is that reservations will be at a premium, so I would recommend choosing when and where you want to go ASAP and get those reservations in. I hope everyone participates; let us know where you went and what you thought!
