Charleston Restaurant WeekFor Immediate Release, June 2011
Mark your calendars! The dates for the next installment of Charleston Restaurant Week have been released. The event will take place from September 7th through the 18th, 2011. Charleston Restaurant Week, executed by the Charleston Restaurant Association (CRA), has quickly become a favorite time of year for locals and tourists alike.
Charleston Restaurant Week is a celebration of the world-renowned cuisine of the Lowcountry. Participating restaurants offer prix fixe menus consisting of three items for one price: $20, $30 or $40. This year, expanded menu categories are designed to offer the restaurants more flexibility with their menus and encourage more restaurants to participate. This opportunity is available only twice a year.
With over 90 participating restaurants ranging from casual to five-star, diners will find great deals on old favorites as well as those restaurants they have been wanting to visit. Menus from each participating restaurant will be available to view on the CRA website as the event gets closer.
