The second annual Austin Restaurant Weeks kicks off next week. Participating local restaurants will offer prix fixe brunch, lunch, cocktail, and/or dinner specials, which will partially benefit the Central Texas Food Bank. It runs from Thursday, August 15 through Monday, September 2.
Currently, there are 104 Austin restaurants and bars taking part in the 19-day event. Eater combed through all the deals to find the most exciting and best bang-for-your-buck offerings. This includes the Brewer’s Table’s famous pork ribs, handmade pasta from Il Brutto, and a killer menu of summer ingredients from Foreign & Domestic.
Not all restaurants have finalized the offerings yet (most notably: Barley Swine, Odd Duck, and Pitchfork Pretty’s seven-course dinner) so watch this space for updates.
Lunches are $20 for two to three courses, whereas dinners are either $35 or $50 for three to five courses. There may also be cocktail specials available for $12 or beer/wine specials. A few restaurants are donating when specific menu items are ordered, like Suerte donating $1 for each suadero taco sold or Blue Owl donating $5 per growler of its Wild Boss with Peaches. This map mostly focuses on dinner options.
(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
