Nashville Restaurant Week kicks off  today, running from Aug. 19 to 25. This year’s event will include more than 30 local restaurants offering special menu items, price points and prix fixe meals.  For example, a Nero’s Grill two-course lunch menu is priced at $12.13 and Noshville Delicatessen is offering a $20.13 special for two diners at any meal. Other restaurants will offer three-course dinners for $20.13 or $30.13, according to a news release.

The event gives local diners a more affordable chance to experience the city’s growing restaurant scene that has been a national media darling for the past 18 months and has drawn nationally acclaimed chefs to the area! Restaurants are members of the Nashville Originals, an association of independent restaurants that have been operating for more than one year.  Click the link to view who is participating and check back often as they are updating the list regularly with menus too.
