Raleigh’s annual tradition where culinary excellence converges with gastronomic delights known as Triangle Restaurant Week has many local eating establishments sharpening their knives in anticipation of the eager and hungry mouths that await them. Designed to showcase the best local restaurants in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, food enthusiasts are given the opportunity to sample special three-course meals from prix fixe menus over a span of seven days and nights.
Many restaurants in the area are eager to sign up to participate in Triangle Restaurant Week as it provides them with not only a blanket of media exposure and instant social media acclaim, but also brings them directly to the potential patrons they want to reach. Most restaurants offer the same menu format to guests at the event, which includes appetizers, an entrée, and dessert. Prices typically range between $15 for a lunch tasting to between $20 and $30 for a dinner tasting. This does not include the cost of beverages, tax, and gratuity. As always, reservations are recommended.
Though it’s not exactly great news for their waistlines, Triangle Restaurant Week guests are afforded an opportunity unlike any other where they can sample foods of every variety and from every cuisine imaginable. Among the most popular offerings are local Raleigh favorites such as Caffe Luna, Five Star, Jujube, Posta Tuscan Grille, Sitti, and The Pit.
Triangle Restaurant Week does away with the concept of the finicky eater. Whether guests are in the mood for locally caught seafood, the balanced tastes of French and Chinese cuisine, or the fiery aromas of Indian and Thai food, there are plenty of options for all to choose from
