Denver Restaurant Week (DRW), the event every food lover in Colorado dreams about, returns to Mile High City-area eateries in 2013 for its ninth year, with official dates set for February 23 – March 8. Denver Restaurant Week is organized by VISIT DENVER, The Convention & Visitors Bureau, to showcase the many fine dining options in and around The Mile High City.

During DRW 2013, diners will be treated to a multi-course meal for the “mile high” price of $52.80 for two or $26.40 for one (not including tax and tip). Registration for restaurants will begin in November 2012, and participating restaurants and menus will be posted on the Denver Restaurant Week website in early 2013.

Denver Restaurant Week was a huge success in 2012, setting a new record of 339 participating restaurants – the most restaurants to participate in any restaurant week in the nation, according to VISIT DENVER. Based on surveys, a record 404,400 meals were served during DRW 2012, up 12 percent over the 360,480 total meals served in 2011.
