Detroit Restaurant Week still cooking: One gift certificate available for fine dining

Detroit Restaurant Week returned for its fifth installment Sept. 23 and runs through Sunday, Oct. 2. Three-course dinners are now available for just $28 per person at select fine dining establishments in Detroit.

Just go into any one of the 21 participating restaurants for dinner and order from the DRW menu. Once you've enjoyed all three-courses you'll be brought a bill that reflects the discount price -- but don't forget that beverages, tax, and gratuity aren't included in the $28 per person price.

And don't be shy about visiting as many restaurants as you can or the same restaurant on multiple days during Detroit Restaurant Week. The price will still be just $28 person each time.

While a reservation is not required, we strongly recommend you make one. The restaurants were packed for last spring's DRW. The number of people who participate increased with each promotion. A whopping 36,578 people dined at participating establishments in the spring.

Since its inception in 2009, more than 120,000 people have participated and an estimated minimum of $2.1 million in sales have been generated for participating restaurants.

Detroit Restaurant Week was established as a partnership between Paxahau Event Productions, the Downtown Detroit Partnership (DDP) and its partner organizations in Midtown, Corktown, Eastern Market and New Center to support and promote fine dining restaurants in greater Downtown Detroit.

Detroit Restaurant Week is also a collaboration of the Greater Downtown Districts - Downtown, Midtown, New Center, Corktown and Eastern Market - and Paxahau Event Productions. 

By the way, the official DRW wine this fall is Gothic Wine's 2009 "Nevermore" Pinot Noir. You can celebrate your Detroit Restaurant Week experience with warm company and savor "Nevermore" by the glass or by the bottle.

Organizers from Paxahau Productions and Model D are combining on a promotion that you just might not be able to refuse.
