Gwinnett Restaurant Week is only days away.

The annual tradition this year features 15 restaurants that offer a three-course meal for $21.21, plus tax and gratuity. The event starts on Monday and ends on July 25. This year, diners are eligible to win small prizes by checking in through the Yelp! app at participating restaurants. Details can be found at www.GwinnettRestaurantWeek.com.

“We are so excited that Gwinnett’s restaurant scene is growing and changing,” said Lisa Anders, executive director of Explore Gwinnett. “Gwinnett Restaurant Week is designed to show off some of the best offerings in Gwinnett. We encourage locals and visitors to use this promotion to discover something new.”

This year, five new eateries are joining the event: Marlow’s Tavern, Three Blind Mice, Graft Restaurant, Mojito’s and The Georgia Pine.

Anders said that “the large majority of our restaurants are independently owned, and we worked very hard this year to incorporate some new establishments that many people haven’t tried yet.”

Most participating restaurants require reservations for Restaurant Week and it is suggested to make them early to confirm space. Reservations can be made online or by phone. Diners can view all of the menus at www.GwinnettRestaurantWeek.com.
