3th Annual RWGR Serves Up Specialty Menus, Digital Check-Ins & Foodie Gifts 

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. (Oct. 4, 2022)- Restaurant Week GR is cooking up one of the most popular culinary events of the year, November 4-12th. After two years offering an “everyday menu” format, Experience Grand Rapids announces the highly anticipated return of specialty menus, along with other event favorites like digital check-ins, incentive offers, and free gifts. 

“We’re excited to bring back the traditional format of Restaurant Week, combined with our newer digital pass program,” says Kate Lieto, Associate VP of Marketing for Experience Grand Rapids. “The past two years were successful in supporting restaurants during challenging times and this year, we’re pleased to bring back the excitement of the specialty menus where local chefs can really showcase their culinary talents.” 

Participating restaurants will offer a special Restaurant Week menu featuring at least 2 courses for either $25 or less, or $25 or more. In addition, restaurants are encouraged to offer additional dessert or drink pairings.  

To prepare for the big event, visit RestaurantWeekGR.com to sign-up and be among the first to receive the RWGR digital pass when it is available in early November. Throughout the event, diners can check-in at three participating locations to receive a free gift. Each check-in also results in a digital coupon for a future visit. A dollar from every check-in will be contributed to an endowed scholarship at the GRCC Secchia Institute for Culinary Education, which has raised more than $185,000 from RWGR since 2010.
