Restaurant Week is back

MPLS St. Paul Magazine’s Restaurant Week is right around the corner!  October 19-24 participating restaurants will present specially priced meals (lunch, dinner, or both) that showcase their culinary offerings in the local dining scenes.  Lunches are $10/20 and dinner is $15/30, depending on the venue.  Tax, wine, beverages and tip are not included in that price.  Some of the participating restaurants include Cafe Lurcat, Haute DishSanctuary, The Oceanaire Seafood Room and many more.  For a full list of participating restaurants and menus offered, click here.  Some of the menus are not up yet but some of the hot spot restaurants may fill up their allotted Restaurant Week reservations before the menus are up.  Therefore, you may want to make a reservation now.
