Glen Lake Restaurant Week Is Happening Now
By Ross Boissoneau | April 29, 2022
Glen Lake Restaurant Week — billed as offering diners everything “French Fries to French Cuisine” — is returning April 29 to May 7. Several restaurants around the Glen Lake area will be participating, including La Becasse, Art’s Tavern, Cherry Republic Public House, Broomstack Kitchen & Taphouse and others.
Prices range from $15 for an entrée with a side to $35 for a prix fixe menu. Offerings include a smelt dinner with fries or tots, cole slaw and a cookie, and a pastry-wrapped beef short rib Wellington with a choice of appetizer and dessert, the latter of which includes peanut butter and jelly sorbet.
The idea was hatched eight years ago by Randy Chamberlain of Blu as a means to increase business for restaurants during the early spring. “It was suggested for a shoulder season event,” says Glen Lake Chamber of Commerce Marketing Director Raquel Jackson She says it has been well-received by both community members and visitors, and she says business has increased at area hotels and B&Bs as more people have come to the area in the pre-season to take advantage of it.
The event didn’t take place in 2020, so this will be the seventh Restaurant Week. Some will be offering takeout options as well as dine-in. Go here for the complete list of participating restaurants, their menus and reservation or take-out policies.Comment
