Making Dallas Even Better

Sneak Peek at KRLD Restaurant Week 2012 Participants

The preview weekend for KRLD Restaurant Week 2012 is August 10-12. However  the most important day for this week-turned-month-long event (August 13-Sept.2) is July 16. That’s the first day you can make reservations from the list of  over 125 restaurants that participate. Each restaurant offers a three-course dinner for $35 per person. If you make a purchase of $25 or more at any Central Market location, you receive a certificate redeemable for a free fourth course valid at participating restaurants. For each prix fixe dinner purchased, the participating restaurants donate $7 to the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth.

This year’s restaurants won’t be announced until next week, but we’re been scouring the internet and checking restaurant websites to help you prep your choices. Here are some of the menus participating restaurants will be serving. Restaurants, feel free to send yours our way.
