The Perfect Bite, The Perfect Price

The city's crowd-drawing Birmingham Restaurant Week event will be held from Jan. 30 - Feb. 3 and Feb. 6 - 10. The delicious dining event happens just once per year.

Take advantage of this opportunity to dine at the city's finest restaurants featuring specially created menus at extraordinary prices. Delve into three-course lunches for $15 and three-course dinners for $30. Brand new this year, Forgotten Harvest is the official charity partner for Restaurant Week. The campaign is called “5 Feeds 25”; a $5 dollar donation will provide 25 meals for those in need.

Participating restaurants have already set out collection canisters and hope to collectively raise $10,000 to provide meals for 50,000 meals to Metro Detroit families in need. Participating restaurants include 220 Restaurant, Barrio Tacos & Tequila, Big Rock Chop & Brew House, Cafe' Via, Cameron's Steakhouse, Chen Chow Brasserie, Elie's Mediterranean Cuisine, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, Forest Grill, Luxe Bar & Grill, Mitchell's Fish Market, Phoenicia, Salvatore Scallopini, South Bar, Streetside Seafood, The Rugby Grille, Toast, Townhouse Bistro and Zazio's.

  1. I wonder if Barrio will have a new executive chef in place before its Restaurant Week debut.

    Hammond Lawton called it quits at the end of December, citing "a difference of visions" just five months after opening.

  2. Alan we will be at Barrio for our Chamber Business After Hours event on 1/11. More info at www.bbcc.com
