Flint’s growing food scene gets cookin’ during 4th Annual Restaurant Week

Flint will be cookin’ with class and sass next week when Flint Restaurant Week kicks off.

The event offers the best culinary experiences the city has to offer – everything from fine dining cuisine in a casual atmosphere, to fresh-ingredient bar food will be showcased May 14-18.

The fare includes historic hometown pizza, bistro cafes, delicious vegan dishes and more. Michigan craft beers, handcrafted cocktails and fine wine from around the world will also be on the menus during the weeklong celebration, now in its fourth year.

“Passports” are available at each participating restaurant during the event, which guests can use to track the number of establishments visited. After collecting six stamps, passports should be turned in at the Soggy Bottom Bar. But eat fast – prizes are limited to the first 300 who respond May 14-18.

In addition, after a suggestion from a Flint Restaurant Week fan, organizers have created an award for Flint’s Top Foodie. The person with the most stamps turned in by Saturday, May 18, will win a trophy, courtesy of A-Frame Awards. So be sure to pick up your Passport early and get busy!

For some establishments, Flint Restaurant Week is an opportunity to present new and special menu items to regular customers. For others, it’s chance to showcase their cuisine to a new clientele who may not be familiar with their restaurant.

Some restaurants have scheduled special entertainment and associated events to complement the full-week of activities.

Next week promises to be great fun and good eats in Flint.
