Vegas Restaurant Week Kicks Off Today

Andrea's at Wynn

Andrea's at WynnToday marks the start of the 2014 Las Vegas Restaurant Week which runs from August 22nd to August 28th and features over 150+ restaurants from all over Vegas.  If you are a foodie (like me) this is an absolute must attend event in the city with some of the best restaurants offering prix fixe menus for a fraction of what they would usually cost.  The way the Restaurant Week is setup is restaurants either offer breakfast, lunch and/or dinner for a fixed price to diners.  Breakfast menus cost $20.14, lunches range from $20.14 to $30.14 and dinners have three options – $30.14, $40.14 and $50.14.

This is the 7th year that Restaurant Week has been around and 2014 features the most restaurants ever to participate in the event which means there is a ton of choices.  With a portion of all proceeds going to Three Square, a charity that feeds underprivileged families, this is a really great way to give back while enjoying an excellent meal.  Below we’ve broken down some of the top picks that shouldn’t be missed and give you an awesome dining experience for a major discount.  You can also check out the tag board which shows pictures from real dinners enjoying dishes at participating restaurants.
