The summer session of (614) Restaurant Week is back from July 26-31, 2021. This year, the majority of meals are available for carryout, as well as the traditional dine-in, plus participants have the opportunity to raise money for A Kid Again!, an organization dedicated to providing cost-free, fun-filled trips to families raising children with life-threatening conditions.
In anticipation of this delicious week ahead, we’ve put together an FAQ for any first-timers.
What is (614) Restaurant Week?
(614) Restaurant Week is a bi-annual event in which restaurants from across the city offer three-course prix fixe meals at a fraction of their regular cost. Meals range from $15-40 (increasing in $5 increments) and typically feature a starter, main course and dessert.
Many places also offer specialty cocktails or recommended drink pairings, and thanks to new liquor laws in Ohio, those are available for carryout as well!
How does this support the restaurant industry?
With limitations on in-person dining and evening curfews, bars and restaurants were devastated throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, so any purchase, no matter how small, is needed and appreciated by local restaurants.
What types of meals are available?
Meal options range from comfort food to fine dining and everything in between. In true Columbus fashion, cuisine from around the world, including Indian, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, French and more. There are plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options as well. Menus can be sorted by price or type to make finding the right meal easy.
