Las Vegas Fall Restaurant Week – August 27 – September 2
Restaurant Week, benefiting Southern Nevada food bank Three Square, kicks off August 27.
It’s that time of the year again in Las Vegas. The culinary masters of Las Vegas come together to host an impressive collection of prix fixe menus that sends foodies hopping around top Las Vegas eateries for seven days straight. Restaurant Week is coming to Las Vegas from August 27 – September 2 (overlapping with Labor Day Weekend).
This year, over sixty restaurants have signed up to be a part of the event, which benefits Three Square, a food bank that serves Southern Nevada.
