Main Course (All the Details):  

City Restaurant Week is a highly anticipated annual culinary event filled with a roster of local restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining. From April 24-29, 18 participating restaurants will be serving up a delicious array of inventive lunches for $15 and dinners for $35 or $50 (excluding drinks & gratuity).  

Wilmington’s dining scene has been boiling hot lately and is marked by a distinguishing characteristic: It is dominated by owner-operators. In other words, there is not one chain restaurant in the bunch! Pretty impressive if we say so ourselves.   

Some of the Participating Restaurants

Each spring, when restaurateurs team up to present City Restaurant Week, chefs and staff view it as a personal invitation, the equivalent of your neighbor inviting you for dinner! With Wilmington’s finest restaurants to select from, offering everything from Asian and Mexican to Italian and Cajun, it's your chance to sample the creative cuisine of these fine dining hot spots with prix-fixe menus. “City Restaurant Week enables us to create fresh menus for the spring, plus it puts emphasis on trying new things and new restaurants within our community,” says Dan Butler, owner, of Piccolina Toscana. “CRW is a reminder that this city has remarkable dining options in close proximity to one another.”    

Sponsored by the Greater Wilmington Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with a host of organizations, City Restaurant Week highlights the best of Wilmington and, for a limited time, offers food lovers the opportunity to dine at some of the area’s best eateries for unbelievably discounted prices. Diners can expect to be treated to a diverse assortment of options. City Restaurant Week presents the perfect opportunity to visit a long-time favorite or to try something new!   

Of course, we can’t forget about...
