The annual Austin Restaurant Weeks kicks off in September, where participating local restaurants will offer prix fixe lunch, cocktail, and/or dinner specials. These sales will partially benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. It runs from Friday, September 1 through Sunday, September 17.
Currently, there are over 75 Austin restaurants and bars taking part in the event. Some offer new dishes while others combine popular choices for set meals. Eater combed through all the deals to find the most exciting and best bang-for-your-buck offerings. This includes steaks from Carve American Grille, many summery options from Italian restaurant Intero, and an all-day adobo rice bowl from Filipino-Vietnamese truck Fil N’ Viet.
Lunches are $20 for two to three courses, whereas dinners are either $40 or $60 for three to four courses. There may also be $12 cocktail specials or wine/beer selections available.
Not all restaurants have finalized the offerings yet (most notably perennial Austin Restaurant Weeks superstar Foreign & Domestic or award-winning barbecue spot Distant Relatives) so watch this map for future updates. (While the names are very similar, this Austin Restaurant Weeks isn’t related to Austin Restaurant Week, which was last held in 2014.)Read More
