COVER THE STRIP TO DINE-OUT FOR A CAUSE


Chefs and Co-owners Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger Create
North and South Strip Prix Fixe Menus for
Restaurant Week June 15-26


You Can Eat This and That to Help End Hunger in Las Vegas


 Two acclaimed chefs, two distinctive locations and one common objective: fighting hunger in Las Vegas. As part of the ninth annual Restaurant Week, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger will for the first time have the opportunity to double their commitment to Restaurant Week by including both of their Las Vegas locations – Border Grill Mandalay Bay and Border Grill inside The Forum Shops at Caesars.

“Supporting the community has been part of our DNA since we began, and we are excited to participate in Restaurant Week once again,” explains Susan Feniger. “The great thing about this year is that for the first time we are able to do it from one end of the Strip to the other. We decided to create two different menus at the two restaurants with the hope people support this great cause twice.

The special prix fixe menus offered will go to support Three Square Food Bank, and both restaurants will be donating a portion of each prix fixe meal served from June 15 – 26 to support Southern Nevada’s only food bank. Guests are invited to experience the bold and authentic cuisine at great prices while helping end hunger in Las Vegas. “It’s the perfect opportunity to discover and taste what we do here in Las Vegas while also making a big difference in people’s lives,” adds Milliken.
