Last year Restaurant Week was moved to August after being held in November its first two years. The results: strong, according to Sally Littlefair Zarafonetis, Experience Grand Rapids project manager for the event. Strong enough that 2013 Restaurant Week is being held in August once again, kicking off last Wednesday and running until Aug. 24.
… In addition, $1 from every Restaurant Week meal sold will be donated by the participating restaurants to a student scholarship fund at Secchia Institute for Culinary Education at Grand Rapids Community College.
“This year we hope to raise $20,000 to add to the fund,” (Doug) Small said. “Many of Secchia Institute’s students decide to stay in the community and some of them develop into masterful chefs growing Grand Rapids culinary talent.”
