Get Hungry! It’S Reno Restaurant Week!
Reno Food & Drink Week is coming back for its third year, June 1 – 8. So get ready for a whole week dedicated to celebrating and showcasing the exceptional talent in Reno’s food and drink scene. Sparks is also joining the party this year with the inaugural Sparks Food & Drink Week taking place the week after Reno Food & Drink Week, from June 8-15.
Cherre Boteler started Food & Drink week under her brand Hungry in Reno. Now in its third year, Reno Food & Drink week has excited restaurant-goers and visitors, giving them a chance to see local establishments stepping out of the box and experimenting with new techniques and ingredients. Throughout the week, participating restaurants create unique off-menu items. In addition, many restaurants donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of their featured dishes to local charities.
Reno Food Tours favorites, Mari Chuy’s and Wild River Grille, have joined this year’s line-up alongside over 50 other bars and restaurants. Chuy’s will be featuring a grilled halibut with chipotle cream and Spanish risotto. Wild River Grille will be offering a three-course dinner that includes a cucumber watermelon salad, classic bruschetta, and pan-seared halibut.
Whatever type of vibe you’re looking for, Reno Food & Drink Week has something to offer. Try an upscale meal at Grafted Whiskey and Wine Bar, their special is a seared swordfish and whiskey flight. At Fourk Kitchen, they offer a 4-course special menu that includes a choice of cheese plate or burrata, followed by a Panzanella salad, caramelized onion, and flank steak crostini with blue cheese compound butter, chicken katsu curry and finishing with a S’mores brown.
If you don’t feel like indulging in a coursed meal, plenty of casual options are available. Royce is offering a Pimento cheese dip
appetizer or pimento cheeseburger. Wow Wow Lemonade has created two unique smoothie bowls in honor of the occasion, Lemon Coconut Mint, and Passion Colada.
