Downtown's Tastiest Week
2017 Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week Returns Feb. 17-26
By Lexi Hotchkiss
Do you really need a good reason to experience Cleveland’s award-winning Downtown restaurants? The reason of “hunger for great food” isn’t enough?
Well, fine. Enter: Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week.
During this divinely delicious week, more than 50 participating Downtown Cleveland restaurants will offer $15, $30 and $40 lunch and dinner specials Feb. 17–26.
“Downtown Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to try out some of Cleveland’s--even the nation’s--best restaurants,” Meghan Tinker, spokeswoman for the Downtown Cleveland Alliance, says. "[It gives Clevelanders and visitors] an opportunity to explore five-star dining options without breaking the bank."
This year, the Downtown Cleveland Alliance will again host the Downtown Restaurant Week Awards.
"We’ll be asking diners to vote for their favorite restaurants," Tinker says.
Categories for the 2017 Downtown Restaurant Week Awards include Judges' Choice, Best New Restaurant and Restaurant of the Year.
On top of that, restaurant patrons will be prompted to vote for the Best Dining District, which coincides with the event's theme, The Hungry Games: Battle of the Districts. Will it be the Warehouse District? Or, maybe Playhouse Square? Only the diners know.
Downtown Cleveland Alliance is working with several downtown parking locations to secure parking for Cleveland Restaurant Week visitors (stay tuned for details).
So, tell us, what’s the best restaurants to hit up in Downtown Cleveland?
