DETROIT (WWJ) – Friday night is the kick-off for “Restaurant Week” in downtown Detroit. 

Theodor Oresky, General Manager of Detroit Seafood Market on Randolph,  said Restaurant Week is a great event for the city; diners get a good deal plus the restaurants hopefully drum up some repeat business.

“We all submit a menu that will fit into a $28-per-person budget. So, you come down to these restaurants, and some of these are some of our great landmarks and icons of the area,” Oresky said.

Eighteen fine dining restaurants are participating in the fourth year of this annual event.

“You have the Roma Cafe, Saltwater and Coach Insignia, of course, not to mention ourselves, but the $28-per-person menu will consist of an appetizer, a main course and a desert,” Oresky said.

Other participating restaurants are: 24Grille, Andiamo Detroit Riverfront, Angelina Italian Bistro, Atlas Global Bistro, Caucus Club, Cuisine, Da Edoardo Foxtown Grille, Iridescence, Mosaic Restaurant, Opus One, Rattlesnake Club, Roast, The Whitney, and Wolfgang Puck Grille.

“This gives us an opportunity to get guests that may not come down to the Detroit market and that may be a little bit hesitant, ‘well I can’t really afford that,’ so it’s a win-win,” Oresky said.

Although reservations are not required, they are strongly encouraged so the restaurants can provide an outstanding experience for each guest. Reservations can be made by visiting this website or by contacting the restaurants directly.
