Restaurant Week LogoWhat  a great way to enjoy one (or more) of the many Wilmington restaurants you've been wanting to try but never had the chance or the one that you love and want to enjoy again - City Restaurant Week in Wilmington, Delaware is that opportunity.  For my husband and I this was our chance to taste many different delicious meals from well-known Wilmington restaurants and experience chefs delights at discounted prices.

With so many food types to choose from including Italian, Seafood, Steak, Classic American, Japanese, and so much more, my husband and I along with a few friends set off to enjoy dinner at two of our favorite restaurants and one new restaurant during City Restaurant Week.

outdoor diningWe had a delicious dinner at The Big Fish Grill and Eclipse Bistro, two restaurant establishments that we frequent regularly and one that we tried for the first time, Moro.  Each dinner included a 3 courses for just $35.  A few co-workers and I also took advantage of Wilmington Restaurant Week's lunch specials at Deep Blue which included 2 courses for $15; the seafood meal we ordered was oh so delicious and perfectly prepared.

One of the best things about Wilmington Restaurant Week is that there are no chain restaurants, all participants are local, home grown establishments - making each dining experience unique.  This year City Restaurant Week will take place Monday, April 7, and continue through Saturday, April 12, 2014 with 19 participating restaurants - including a few new restaurants which I am looking forward to trying.
