Restaurant Week Toledo to run March 28-April 3Written by Sarah Ottney | Managing Editor | firstname.lastname@example.org
Leadership Toledo is teaming with Toledo Free Press to organize a Restaurant Week to benefit the local nonprofit and showcase the area’s diverse culinary options.
Cory Dippold, director of youth programs for Leadership Toledo, said Restaurant Week is something that is done across the country in most mid-size and larger cities.
“The main goal is that it is a fundraiser for Leadership Toledo, but it is also designed to bring awareness to locally owned restaurants and some of the menu items they have to offer,” Dippold said.
Restaurant Week Toledo is set for March 28 through April 3.
More than 15 restaurants in Toledo and the surrounding area have created menus especially for Restaurant Week and will offer meals for $10, $20 and $30 or other specials.
Diners will have several choices for each course, typically an appetizer, entrée and dessert. Restaurant Week specials are for dine-in only. Beverages, tax and gratuity are not included in the price.
For each purchase, an amount will go to Leadership Toledo, a nonprofit organization established in the early 1980s. The group fosters leadership and involvement in the Greater Toledo area, including expanding knowledge and awareness of community issues and opportunities, and preparing area residents for more active and informed involvement in community affairs.
The lineup of restaurants is profiled in a pullout guide in the March 23 Toledo Free Press Star, available in more than 300 locations, including Meijer, Andersons and Kroger stores.
The 12-page guide is also available as a downloadable document here.
The list of Restaurant Week Toledo participants includes: Angelo’s Northwood Villa, Black Pearl, The Blarney Irish Pub, Dégagé Jazz Café, Fat Fish Blue, Fifi’s Reprise Restaurant and Lounge, Frog Leg Inn, Hungry I, J. Patrick’s Restaurant & Pub, La Scola Italian Grill, Manhattan’s, Poco Piatti, Rockwell’s, Rosie’s Italian Grille, Tea Tree Asian Bistro and Ventura’s.
Other media partners include FOX Toledo and Star 105.5 FM.
