SAVE THE DATE: 4TH ANNUAL DEARBORN RESTAURANT WEEK

Calling all Dearborn restaurant owners - the registration process for Dearborn Restaurant Week 2020 is underway!


With over 30 restaurants participating last year, we hope to continue the growth for this year's event. It will be taking place from March 20-29, allowing you to enjoy increased traffic for two weekends!


This nine day event provides the opportunity to put a spotlight on the wide array of local cuisine found in Dearborn, exposing restaurant goers to hidden gems, new-to-the-scene hot spots and the opportunity to rediscover longtime favorites.


Throughout the week, each participating Dearborn restaurant will have their regular menu alongside a special Dearborn Restaurant Week menu plating a prix-fix 3-course meal priced at $10, $20 or $30 for either lunch and/or dinner, and for one or two people. No tickets are required for patrons to participate in this event.
