Restaurant Week kicks off Monday

LAWRENCEVILLE -- It's a celebration of what Gwinnett has to offer in the area of dining.

The Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau has brought together 14 restaurants for Gwinnett Restaurant Week 2010, which highlights a variety of dining options throughout the county.

Participating restaurants will offer three-course meals for $21.21 plus tax and gratuity daily Monday through Thursday.

"Great meals and a great deal, that is kind of our motto for Gwinnett Restaurant Week," said Lisa Anders, GCVB's marketing communications director. "The GCVB conceived Restaurant Week for a couple of reasons: one, to showcase some of our best restaurants to both our visitors and our locals, and by offering great value to diners."

Most participating restaurants require reservations.

"A number of our restaurants sell out each year, so the earlier the better for making reservations," Anders said. "People are really excited by the variety of menus and the great price point."

Participating restaurants include Aqua Terra Bistro and Prime Parc Steakhouse in Buford; Park Cafe, The Melting Pot, Luciano's, Kurt's featuring Vreny's Biergarten and Sugo, all of Duluth; Hi-Life Kitchen and The Palace Indian Restaurant in Norcross; Dominick's in Lawrenceville, Norcross and Duluth; Bonefish Grill at The Avenue Webb Gin and Mall of Georgia; Ted's Montana Grill in Buford, Lawrenceville and Norcross; Sperata Buford and Sperata on the Square in downtown Lawrenceville; and Carrabba's Sugarloaf.
