Restaurant Week 2020 is here
Now more than ever, dsm is excited to present the 13th annual Restaurant Week, 10 days of meals and deals starting today, Friday, Aug. 21.
As events and activities throughout the city have been forced to change in response to COVID-19, so, too, has Restaurant Week. With the goal of elevating and celebrating our city’s dining scene, this year’s event will give restaurants additional flexibility, with dine-in and carryout options and the freedom to create a menu that works for them. Dine-in dinner menus will range from $30 to $35 per person, while carryout will be $30. Lunches, both dine-in and carryout, will be $15 per person.
Eateries were just starting to reopen when we produced a special section in the July/August issue of dsm Magazine, but we hope these stories serve as an appetizer to what’s ahead for Restaurant Week. dsm writers Wini Moranville and Karla Walsh shared some of their most memorable dining experiences over the past year, from sensational sweets (canelés, anyone?) to the best burgers. And in an insightful and moving essay, Wini reminisces on 40 years of Des Moines dining.
For the list of this year’s participating restaurants, please visit the Restaurant Week website. Then plan your 10 days of feasting as you show support of your favorite restaurants. And try some new places, too!
