Here Comes KRLD Restaurant Week (Yay!)

The simply amazing KRLD Restaurant Week is in full swing August 15th through 21st.  And, some restaurants will continue through August 28th.  Even a few will continue through Labor Day weekend.  Oh, and if that’s not enough, many will have a special preview August 12th through 14th.  It is the very best way to spend a hot August night.  A great meal, at a great price for a great cause–The North Texas Food Bank and the Lena Pope Home.  Over 125 restaurants!  This event raised over $600,000 for the charities last year, and millions through the years since it started in 1997.  Bring your friends.  Bring you family.  Heck invite the in-laws to town!  They don’t have to know you got a great three-course dinner for them for only $35.  But be sure and let them know you’re all helping charity with your dinner, because $7 from each meal purchased goes to the charities.  You MUST have a reservation to get this special deal.  The phone lines are levitating as we speak at the hottest places in town, so hurry and call now!  There is so much diversity, both in food and in location, that I wouldn’t sweat it if you can’t get a reservation at exactly the place you want.  The big brand name places fill up fast.  So, consider branching out and trying new places, or going to an area you haven’t visited before.  There are great choices on the list.  Like Carnegie Hall, not a bad seat in the house.  See all the restaurants at GuideLive.com or KRLD.com.  Please remember, if you make a reservation and can’t keep it, CALL the restaurant and let them know so you don’t keep someone else from dining out for the cause.  And, by all means take good care of your server!  At these prices, you should tip 20% on what the meal SHOULD have cost, AND order a more expensive wine.  Most all of the restaurants are doing wine and food pairings for an additional charge.  That’s the best way to experience the meal and the great flavor profiles the way the chef envisioned it.  So have a great time, and let me know what you really love this year during KRLD Restaurant Week.  Bon appétit!
