Denver Restaurant Week to be Twice the Fun in 2014 Popular Event Will Split to Offer Winter and Summer Versions
For its 10th anniversary in 2014, VISIT DENVER’s Denver Restaurant Week (DRW) will be twice as exciting with both a winter and summer version. The traditional winter DRW will be held from Feb. 22-28, 2014, and next year the popular dining event will be supplemented with another full week of summer dining specials from Aug. 23-29, 2014.
Another change will be a slight price increase (the first in nine years), with the price for a multi-course dinner during DRW rising from $52.80 for two to $30 per person in 2014.
Each of the Denver Restaurant Weeks in 2014 will be seven days, returning to the format DRW launched in 2005, and a departure from recent years where DRW has been 14 days in one stretch.
Said Richard Scharf, President and CEO of VISIT DENVER, “We’ve discovered that 14 continuous days of business is just too much of a strain, both for chefs and wait staffs.” Scharf noted that restaurants felt that it was more difficult to maintain a high quality dining experience for that length of time, considering the volume of people who dine out during DRW.
In 2013, a record 355 participating restaurants served 436,650 meals.
