Downtown Wausau Dining Week returns Oct. 16-20
After the major success of last year’s first Downtown Wausau Dining Week, one of the most frequent requests from downtown restaurants was to have another Dining Week the very next week. That request was taken to heart and another Dining Week is set for mid-October.
From October 16th through the 20th, Downtown Wausau Dining Week will return for a second week this, featuring three-course price-fix menus from participating restaurants. Menus will be displayed on DowntownWausauDining.com when available. Until then, you can get a virtual taste of April’s Dining Week menus on the site.
Twelve downtown restaurants will be participating in Downtown Wausau Dining Week this fall. Throughout the week, diners will have the opportunity to sample several three-course price-fix menus for lunch and dinner, ranging in price from $7-15 for lunch and $12-35 for dinner, depending on the restaurant. Some restaurants will be creating new menu items for the event and others will be highlighting their customers’ classic favorites.
Participating restaurants include 319 Bistro, Back When Café, Chatterbox, City Grill, La Prima, J. Gumbo’s, Jalapeno’s, Malarkey’s/Townie’s, the Mint, Polito’s, The Paisley Mug (formerly Allister Deacons), and Peking Restaurant. Restaurants will continue serving their regular menus as well, and reservations are not generally required.
New for this Downtown Wausau Dining Week, diners are invited to enter a picture of their meal with the hashtag #WausauRiverDistrict on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for a chance to win a gift certificate package to participating restaurants.
Downtown Wausau Dining Week is a time when residents and visitors can try some of the best food Wausau has to offer. “This week is a great opportunity for people to experience great savings on quality, artisan lunches and dinner prepared by your community, small, locally-owned businesses,” says Rollie Thomas, owner of La Prima. Mitch Meurette, co-owner of Peking Restaurant adds, “You will be truly amazed!”
