Summer Restaurant Week. If you’ve heard the hype but you haven’t tried it yet, you’re probably asking, “Why this year?”
Because it’s a bigger adventure than ever!
Summer Restaurant Week – a chance for dozens of local restaurants to show off new dishes and offer you a chance to see what they can do – returns July 27 to August 3. Now with over 40 of the biggest-name local restaurants participating, you’ve got an excuse to try a lot of places around town you may never have sampled before.
Every restaurant approaches the week differently, but overall , you’ll be able to pick up a three-course meal for a pretty reasonable price at many of the spots in town. I had a chance to sample some of the highlights of this year’s restaurant week at a preview put on by the Miami Valley Restaurant Association at their Sneak Peek event last evening.
Crazy Mango Bar & Bistro at The Greene has taken the chance to show off some of its most loved dishes. Its Korean Tacos, made with ribeye and topped with an unlikely combo of kimchi, Siracha, and a ton of veggies, won “Best Damn Dish” in last year’s Taste of Miami Valley, and owner Bob Silva says it’s on the menu again this year.
Coco’s Bistro is showing off its tasty skills again with a light summer salad, topped with sangria glazed petit pears, bleu cheese, ancho candied pecans & a white peach vinaigrette. Sous chef Donald Ford said it’s a chance to introduce people to the restaurant’s existing favorites.
Owner Emily Mendenhall of Lily’s Bistro showed a fruitier side with a cucumber and watermelon salad served alongside pork tenderloin and peach habanero salsa. All of it has a little bit of sweet, a little bit of spice and a lot of flavor.
Then of course are the favorites; The Melting Pot and its luxuriously chocolate-covered fruit, Figlio with a pear and brie pizza, The Dock’s much loved lobster bisque. No matter what food you’re up for, you won’t go hungry this week.
“I think we have a lot of great variety this year,” MVRA executive director Amy Zahora said.
