North Texas’ largest culinary event and the nation’s second longest running restaurant week campaign, the 25th Anniversary DFW Restaurant Week officially kicks off Aug. 8–14, with most of the restaurants extending dining for additional weeks, through Sept. 4. Many restaurants also offer a head start on dining with DFW Restaurant Week Preview Weekend, Aug. 4-7.

Explore a variety of cuisines with premier restaurants across Dallas, Tarrant, Collin and Denton counties through an expanded selection of anniversary prixfixe menu dining options – including new weekend brunch and Signature Experience dinners. Approximately 20 percent of the cost of each meal will be donated to NTFB in the Dallas area or Lena Pope in the Tarrant area. Options include:

Dinner – Three-courses for either $39 ($8 donated) or $49 ($10 donated)
• Signature Experience Dinner – NEW! - $99 ($20 donated) – Exclusive VIP experience created by select restaurants. Features may include signature cocktails, chef’s table or additional courses crafted for an especially memorable meal. Timing varies
• Lunch - Two-courses for $24 ($4 donated) at many restaurants
• Weekend Brunch – NEW! – Two-courses for $29 ($6 donated) at select restaurants
• Take-Out – Many restaurants will continue to offer take-out options for their DFW Restaurant Week menus

“Over the past 25 years, DFW Restaurant Week has successfully raised nearly $11 million in charitable donations directly benefiting our community,” said NTFB President and CEO Trisha Cunningham. “Diners can help celebrate this summer’s landmark anniversary knowing that each meal purchased in the greater Dallas area in turn helps NTFB to provide up to 147 meals for neighbors in need. Please join us by dining out and giving back throughout the campaign!”

Added Lena Pope CEO Ashley Elgin, Ph.D., “We are so thankful to have been the Tarrant County beneficiary of DFW Restaurant Week for 24 of the 25 years it has been held. As one of our largest annual fundraisers, DFW Restaurant Week is extremely important to our organization – the more people dine out, the more funds are raised, and the more we can help local children struggling with mental health. We hope our Tarrant area residents recognize this huge impact, and dine out charitably throughout its run.”
