Ogden Restaurant Week is here, offering a chance to break out of your restaurant rut and try more than two dozen participating restaurants without breaking your budget. From now through Saturday, April 15, you can get a two-course lunch for $10 and a three-course dinner for $17. The courses, if purchased separately off the regular menu, would cost quite a bit more than the $10 price for lunch, and the $17 dinner price.
Hosting a Restaurant Week makes a culinary statement about the quality of the city’s local, independently owned restaurants. Many major cities such as New York, Boston, Seattle, Chicago, San Diego and New Orleans have a Restaurant Week with dining deals. About 13 years ago, Salt Lake City’s downtown restaurants organized an annual Dine O’Round that takes place every September. Begun in 2013, Ogden Restaurant Week has added new participants each year.
Some tips for navigating Restaurant Week:
- Drinks, tax and tip are not included in the $10 and $17 prices, so budget accordingly.
- Check the menus on Ogdenrestaurantweek.com or by calling the restaurant. Most places offer several different choices. But if you don’t like any of them, you will end up ordinering from the regular menu, at regular prices — no savings. can always order from the regular menu, and pay the regular price.
- Consider making reservations, if you’ve got a large group. Eateries tend to be fill up more quickly during Restaurant Week. You might want to time your visit before or after the usual rush hours.
- Be part of the buzz. Share your selfies and meal experiences on the Ogden Restaurant Week Facebook page.
