All 12 318 Restaurant Week Special Events, Described in One Sentence Each

The second installment of 318 Restaurant Week is scheduled for March 14-18, 2017. This edition of the local restaurant promotion will be a citywide event with nearly 40 participating eateries, 12 special, one-night-only dining experiences, plus a guided food tour hosted by Chef Hardette Harris. That’s more than twice the number of events and restaurants from 2016. So, there’s a lot to digest, so to speak.

I’ve boiled all of the special events being offered by 318 Restaurant Week down to just a single sentence and a few helpful links. You can also swing by the 318 Restaurant Week website for more complete information and to enter to win a prize package featuring gifts from 2439 Fairfield: A Bed and Breakfast, Robinson Film Center, Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets and Fully Stacked.

318 Restaurant Week is presented by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau, The Times and Waitr.
