Las Vegas Restaurant Week Returns for 10th Anniversary
With 12 Days and More than 140 Restaurants
Help Out By Dining Out June 6-17, 2016
LAS VEGAS (May 2, 2016) – Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Las Vegas Restaurant Week, the highly anticipated annual culinary event will return June 6-17, 2016.
Restaurants joining in Las Vegas Restaurant Week will create their own prix-fixe menu offered at price points ranging from $20 to $80, with a fixed portion of the proceeds benefitting Three Square and the fight against hunger in Southern Nevada. Offered for the first time, the new $80 dinner option will allow the valley’s top high-end restaurants to participate while giving back at unprecedented levels.
Beginning May 23, a website devoted to Las Vegas Restaurant Week – www.helpoutdineoutlv.org – will launch, providing the list of participating restaurants and menu details. The easy-to-navigate, mobile-friendly site allows diners to search by type of cuisine and offers the option to book a reservation through opentable.com or yelp.com.
Restaurants already confirmed to participate include: Alize, Blue Ribbon, China Poblano, Culinary Dropout, Del Frisco’s Steakhouse, Fogo de Chao, Hakkasan, Holstein’s Shakes and Buns, Honey Salt, Itsy Bitsy: Ramen and Whisky, Gilley’s Bar-B-Que, MOzen Bistro, Searsucker, Sushi Roku and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, among many others.
In its first ten years, Las Vegas Restaurant Week has raised more than $1 million for Three Square. 100 percent of the proceeds collected from participating restaurants benefits Three Square and its mission to provide meals to more than 305,000 hungry residents in Southern Nevada.
Diners are encouraged to share their experiences and be a part of the conversation on Twitter and Instagram by following @threesquarelv and using the hashtags #LVRW and #HelpOutDineOutLV, and on Facebook by ‘Liking’ the Las Vegas Restaurant Week page – http://on.fb.me/lvrwfb.
