Downtown Wausau Dining Week will be coming back from April 17th through the 21st. Many downtown restaurants will be offering three-course lunch specials ranging from $7-$12 and/or three-course dinner specials ranging from $10-$35.
Executive Director of the Wausau River District, Elizabeth Brodek, says when they first tried this event last year, it was a huge success.
"It was phenomenal," said Brodek. "Every restaurant had a wait at some point. I know there were some that were turning patrons away because they couldn't keep up with the demand. The couple of times that I went to restaurants I had between a 20 and 45-minute wait for a table. It just packed the restaurants."
Brodek says the businesses will continuing using their normal reservation policies for that week.
She said, "Reservations are definitely recommended. If the restaurant takes reservations as is, as their normal operating plan, then they will continue to do that. If they don't then they won't. So basically it's business as usual plus they're adding a wonderful three-course price fixed menu for everyone."
Participating restaurants include 319 Bistro, Allister Deacon's, Back When Cafe, Chatterbox, City Grill, La Prima, J. Gumbo's, Jalapeno's, Malarkey's/Townie's, the Mint, Polito's, Rosati's, and Peking.
