For the next ten days, leave the kitchen cold and dine out for a good cause. Omaha Restaurant Week begins this Friday, September 13th and runs through the 22nd.

Every time you have dinner at a participating restaurant and order from the Omaha Restaurant Week menu, you will be supporting Food Bank for the Heartland

“In the two years Visit Omaha has organized this event, Omaha Restaurant Week donations have provided more than 65,000 meals to families in our community,” said Keith Backsen, executive director for Visit Omaha. “Our goal is to help increase business for our local restaurants, and provide additional funding for the food bank, something we’re very proud to do for our community.”

This year, 46 metro area restaurants are participating in Omaha Restaurant Week. Diners can choose from a special multi-course dinner menu available at a fixed price of $20, $30, $40, and $50 a person. Each menu typically includes three options for each course: appetizer, entree and dessert. No tickets, passes or coupons are required; food lovers can simply dine out as often as they like at participating restaurants during the ten day event.

Five percent of each multi-course meal purchased at restaurants participating in Omaha Restaurant Week will be donated to Food Bank for the Heartland. Visit OmahaRestaurantWeek.com for a complete list of participating restaurants, menus and pricing. Visit Omaha, also known as the Omaha Convention & Visitors Bureau.
