DETROIT – Mayor Dave Bing this morning joined Detroit Restaurant Week organizers and representatives from participating restaurants for a news conference to announce details of the inaugural dinner promotion that begins Friday, September 18 and runs through Sunday, September 27. The news conference was hosted by Michael Symon’s Roast restaurant located inside the Westin Book Cadillac Detroit.

Seventeen of downtown’s finest dining establishments are participating in the inaugural Detroit Restaurant Week and Mayor Bing believes the 10-evening, $27 fixed-price dinner promotion is a great way to sample the eclectic restaurant options the city has to offer while at the same time supporting Detroit businesses.

“Detroit Restaurant Week highlights the many fine establishments we have in our city -- where a plate can be found for every palate,” said Mayor Bing. “As more people look to spend their money locally, I welcome them to Detroit, and invite them to discover the rich flavors and tastes we offer here, not only during Detroit Restaurant Week, but every day.”

2009 Detroit Restaurant Week will offer specially-priced dining at these fine restaurants:

24 Grille - Westin Book Cadillac Andiamo Detroit Riverfront - GM Ren Cen
Atlas Global Bistro - Midtown Coach Insignia - GM Ren Cen
Cuisine - New Center Da Edoardo Foxtown Grille - Foxtown
Detroit Fish Market - Paradise Valley Forty-Two Degrees North - GM Ren Cen
Iridescence - MotorCity Casino-Hotel Mosaic Restaurant - Greektown
Opus One - Downtown Rattlesnake Club - Stroh River Place
Roast - Westin Book Cadillac Saltwater - MGM Grand Detroit
Seldom Blues - GM Ren Cen The Whitney - Midtown
Wolfgang Puck Grille - MGM Grand Detroit  

Each restaurant will offer a minimum three-course dinner for the fixed price of $27 (exclusive of beverage, tax and gratuity). Many restaurants will also offer specially-priced wine and beverage pairings to accompany the meal.

“Fine dining in downtown is always a treat – especially when paired with such outstanding values at Detroit’s very top tier restaurants,” said Ann Lang, President & CEO of the Downtown Detroit Partnership. “We’re hearing nothing but enthusiasm for this first Detroit Restaurant Week, and we hope to see it become a regular tradition in the Downtown, Midtown, Corktown, New Center and Eastern Market districts.”

Jason Huvaere, Producer of Detroit Restaurant Week, said restaurant week promotions in other major cities across the country have brought customers back again and again -- even after the promotion has ended. And based on early feedback from participating restaurants and the local community, Detroit’s restaurant week is expected to be just as popular as those in Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore and Washington D.C.

“We are home to some of the best dining establishments in the country and this region will welcome this type of dinner promotion,” said Huvaere. “Over the course of the last three months, we’ve been promoting Detroit Restaurant Week at events throughout the region, and we’ve received a very positive response from everyone we’ve engaged.

“And based on preliminary reports from the participating restaurants, reservations are strong, which means that our community is truly embracing the Detroit Restaurant Week concept.”

Reservations are not required, but are very strongly encouraged. Individuals or groups can make reservations by visiting the “Restaurant” page on www.DetroitRestaurantWeek.com. The menus for each restaurant can be found on the “Restaurant” page by clicking on the name of the establishment.
