Pounds: Restaurant Week Toledo — Third time’s a charmWritten by Tom Pounds | President / Publisher | firstname.lastname@example.org
One of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of Toledo Free Press is the opportunity to work with strong local organizations to help move the community forward.
As we plan and work on such upcoming events as the Feb. 15 Fire & Ice Rock ‘n’ Roll for the Red Cross fundraiser, the March 10 Project iAm Acoustics for Autism concert, the May 22 American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball, and a CD of local musicians playing summer songs for the local American Red Cross chapter, one event is accompanied by a tremendous amount of cooperation and buzz.
The third annual Restaurant Week Toledo, presented by Medical Mutual, is set for Feb. 21 to March 2. Participating restaurants are Bar 145, Barr’s Public House, The Blarney Irish Pub, Bobby V’s American Grill, Burger Bar 419, Caper’s Restaurant, Gradkowski’s, ICE Restaurant and Bar, La Scola Italian Grill, Loma Linda, Mancy’s Bluewater Grille, Mancy’s Steaks, Manhattan’s, Maumee Wines and Bistro, The Oliver House (Mutz, Maumee Bay Brew Pub, Rockwell’s and The Café), Plate 21, Poco Piatti, Registry Bistro, Rosie’s Italian Grille, Shorty’s True American Roadhouse, Tea Tree Asian Bistro, TREO, Ventura’s and Zinful.
Each venue will feature a special Restaurant Week menu priced at $10, $20 or $30. (Drinks, taxes and gratuities are not included unless specified.) A portion of the proceeds will benefit local nonprofit Leadership Toledo’s youth programs. We are big believers in the mission and work of Leadership Toledo, and it has been amazing to watch this event grow exponentially every year.
As Toledo Free Press Managing Editor Sarah Ottney has reported, the boundaries of the event stretch far beyond Toledo.
Participants are in Sylvania, Swanton, Perrysburg, Maumee, Waterville, Holland and the surrounding area.
“Restaurant Week Toledo encompasses the whole Greater Toledo area,” said Becca Gorman, co-chair of Restaurant Week Toledo. “We want everyone to feel a part of the event and to participate. From the various price points to the healthy options offered at each location to the variety of areas represented, there’s something for everyone.”
The event is a great way to visit old favorites or explore new venues, all while supporting local causes.
It’s hard to believe we are already in the third year of this event, and it’s one we hope to be a part of for many years to come. Watch for full coverage in upcoming editions of Toledo Free Press and Toledo Free Press Star.
