Eat, drink and be merry starting Thursday, August 27 through Thursday, September 3

APPLETON, Wis. – A group of local volunteers has planned the very first Fox Cities Restaurant Week, which will start on Thursday, August 27 and run through Thursday, September 3.

Participating restaurants throughout the Fox Cities will be offering price-fixed, three-course menu options: $12 for lunch, and $25 or $35 options for dinner. The offer excludes beverages, tax and gratuity. No tickets, coupons or cards are required for redemption.

“The goal is to amplify the awareness of the vibrant, local dining scene in our community and inspire individuals to experience and enjoy new – or their favorite – restaurants,” says Samantha Dennis, event lead. “It is also an opportunity for restaurants to show off their culinary creativity and customer service.”
