Restaurateurs across the Las Vegas valley are turning up the heat in preparation for Las Vegas Restaurant Week on June 18 through 29.
During Las Vegas Restaurant Week participating restaurants offer fixe menus at price points ranging from $20 to $80. This year marks Las Vegas Restaurant Week 12th anniversary, which has raised a total of $1.4 million thanks to visitors, locals and the Las Vegas valley’s restaurant community.
“Las Vegas is the epicenter of the culinary arts, providing access to some of the world’s best restaurants and most talented chefs – that’s what makes Las Vegas Restaurant Week so unique,” said Three Square Food Bank President and CEO Brian Burton. “It’s the time of year when our city’s finest make themselves even more accessible with affordable menus that help feed our hungry neighbors at the same time.”
Proceeds from Restaurant Week benefit Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank. Three Square currently provides more than 37 million meals per year to more than 1,600 community partners including nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada.
A fixed portion of each meal’s cost will benefit Three Square, and 100 percent of all proceeds collected will support the nonprofit’s mission of providing meals to residents in Southern Nevada.
Happening prior to the start of Las Vegas Restaurant Week from 7 to 10 p.m. on June 14, is the second annual “Summer Cookout Featuring Robert Irvine” at Robert Irvine’s Public House inside Tropicana Las Vegas.
Hosted by Chef Irvine himself, the event welcomes guests to indulge in summertime favorite dishes, refreshing beverages and bites from Tropicana restaurants.
Tickets are priced at $100 for VIP entry, $50 for general admission and $40 for all active military, veterans and local law enforcement including first responders, not including tax and fees.
