Ann Arbor Restaurant Week

For foodies, Ann Arbor is paradise. And with such a varied spread of options— from Korean fare to New American plates, vegan treats, Cuban cuisine, and more— many of us find ourselves with a laundry list of restaurants that we’re going to try “like, really soon.” Ready to cross a few places off of your A2 restaurant bucket list? Ann Arbor Restaurant Week, a semiannual event starting Sunday, June 9, is the perfect time to try something new (or settle into your stand-by favorites with deep discounts).

Running June 9 through 14, Ann Arbor Restaurant Week features 54 restaurants all offering meals at affordable fixed prices (one to three-course lunches for $18 and three-course dinners for $28), with some restaurants offering two-for-one pricing, as well as a few featuring splurge-worthy Chef’s Choice menus ($38).

Gratzi

326 S. Main St.
888-456-3463 | Gratzirestaurant.com

Deals: three-course lunch for $18 on Friday only, and three-course dinner for $28 on Sunday only.

An Italian favorite, Gratzi, is serving up two days of deals on their sumptuous menu filled with hearty and inspired classics. First-course options include calamari with saffron aioli. Second-course delights include salmon with local potato gnocchi, Pollo Milanese and braised short ribs. Oh yeah, the meal is topped off with your choice of tiramisu or zuppe inglaise.

Aventura

216 E. Washington St.
734-369-3153 | Aventuraannarbor.com

Deals: three-course dinner for $28.

Watermelon, octopus, zucchini, hazelnuts, and saffron are all brightly featured on this modern Spanish bistro’s inspired menu. From salmon appetizers to passion fruit and meringue tarts, we’re eager to experience these new dishes during Aventura’s Restaurant Week adventure.

Mani Osteria

341 E. Liberty St.
734-769-6700

Deals: three-course lunch for $18, three-course dinner and dessert for $28, and a two-course brunch(!!!) for $18.

Another Italian favorite, Mani Osteria’s offers a wide range of Restaurant Week selections, including a Sunday brunch from 11am-2pm. Appetizers include chorizo dates, baked goat cheese, and deviled eggs, with the second-course options including biscuits and gravy, avocado and prosciutto toast, and Margherita pizza.

Miss Kim

734-275-0099 | misskimannarbor.com

Deals: Lunch for $18 (with a deluxe option for $20), and dinner for $28 (with a deluxe option for $42).

When it comes to fried chicken, this locally-sourced Korean hotspot does not mess around. During Restaurant Week, get the Miss Kim experience by enjoying their crispy, spicy and flavorful Korean-style fried chicken rice bowls (or, if you’re vegan, a gochujang tofu bowl), with smashed potatoes or avocado and edamame dip, and cardamom bread pudding. For extras, including pork buns, soup, and more, see the deluxe menu options online.
