Good food brings people into downtown Ann Arbor year-round. But this week is an especially good time to make your way downtown for Ann Arbor Restaurant Week, which runs until this Friday, June 25th. Your taste buds can enjoy special Restaurant Week meals cooked up by 33 local establishments for fixed prices - $12 for lunch and $25 for dinner. The event, which is presented by Ann Arbor's Main Street Area Association, is about more than just giving people a reason to dine out on the town. It aims to support downtown's local economy, by encouraging people to frequent downtown dining establishments, shop at nearby businesses, and find new favorite places.
"Restaurant Week is all about bringing people downtown. For those that frequent downtown it's an opportunity to try some new spots, for those that have maybe fallen out of the routine of supporting downtown businesses it's encouragement to come back and see what's new. And for those who have never been to downtown Ann Arbor, it's yet another reason to visit our award-winning neighborhood," Main Street Area Association executive director Maura Thomson was recently quoted in an article Magdalena Zenaida contributed to annarbor.com.
