Restaurant Week events in metro Detroit are in full force

It’s that time of year again. Yep, you can’t swing a cat without hitting a restaurant week in the Detroit area over the next few months.

Here’s a quick low-down on the dates for upcoming restaurant weeks in the metro Detroit area.

  • Rochester Restaurant Week is happening now and runs through Friday, August 12th. Lunch is $10 for a two-course meal and dinner is $20 for a three-course meal.
  • Nautical Mile Restaurant Week joins in the fray for the first time celebrating the restaurants of St. Clair Shores. Three-course lunch and dinner menus will be available for $20. August 12-21, 2011.
  • Troy Restaurant Week includes 16 participating establishments. Theirs is also the most confusing. Lunch specials for $15 and dinner can run you $25, $30 or $35 per person depending on the restaurant. August 21-26, 2011.
  • Detroit Restaurant Week is always the most anticipated and the fall edition will return September23 through October 2, 2011. The price will stay the same at $28 for a three-course dinner.

Detroit Restaurant Week started in 2009 and this will be the fifth installment. Last spring 18 establishments participated.

From the responses I’ve heard in the past, people either love the restaurant week concept or hate it. The complaints usually are that you receive smaller portions and possibly not the best quality because of the sheer volume.

Others, though, love it and make several reservations each season.

Which camp do you fall in? Are you a lover or hater of restaurant weeks? Which cities’ installment will you participate in?
