Restaurateurs across the Las Vegas valley are turning up the heat in preparation for Southern Nevada’s leading culinary event, Las Vegas Restaurant Week, June 18-29, 2018.
This year marks the 12th installment of Las Vegas Restaurant Week, which has raised a total of $1.4 million since its inception thanks to visitors, locals and the 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.”
