It may be cold here in South Bend in January, but things are heating up at a handful of restaurants downtown. The winter South Bend Restaurant Week kicks off on January 21st and will run through February 3rd. Participating restaurants are offering typically a three or four course meal or a dinner for two for just $30 (some restaurants and some lunch menus are $15). This is a great way to head downtown and explore something new, or just go to one of your old favorites and have a great meal for one low price. There’s even a brand new restaurant on display for this event–Baker’s Restaurant can be found at the DoubleTree Hotel. I’ve had a chance to sample some of their food and it’s worth checking out if you want to try something new.

2013 South Bend Restaurant Week

If you’re planning on attending one or more restaurants during restaurant week, be sure to plan early and make reservations. Given the popularity, restaurants get quite busy, especially on weekends and in the second week, so booking your table in advance is a good idea. When making your reservation be sure to mention it’s for the restaurant week menu.

Finally, when paying your check, you can add an “Extra Helping”for the Food for Kids Pack-a-Backpack program. Sponsored by the Jordan Automotive Group and the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, Food for Kids Pack-a-Backpack provides food backpacks for K-6 students during weekends and holiday breaks.

Participating Restaurants and Menus

This year there are 11 restaurants taking part in restaurant week. Every menu has a lot to offer and you will be able to select from a great list of starters, main courses, desserts, and so on. Many restaurants are also offering drink specials and highlighting local beer and wine. So, take a look at the menus and start planning on where to eat!
