One of the great things about 318 Restaurant Week are the one-of-a-kind dining experiences that happen every night from March 15-20. These popular dinners sell out quick so act fast and reserve your seat now. If you can’t get a ticket, don’t forget there’s $10 lunch and $20 dinner specials all week long.
