Memphis Dining Week Is August 17-22: Eat Local, Give Back

The first-ever Memphis Dining Week is August 17 - 22, 2021, and every time you eat out that week you'll also help feed your fellow Memphians. 

Check out the menus on the website, and then make your reservations! Be sure to ask for 'Memphis Dining Week' when you make the reservation. 

Twelve local restaurants across the city will participate in the inaugural Memphis Dining Week. Enjoy three-course meals with special menus with prices ranging from $35 to $45 per meal. Restaurants will donate $1 from every tab to Refuge Memphis, a local nonprofit supporting people in need of food and shelter. The price points do not include tax, tip, or beverages. A twenty percent gratuity will be automatically added to each tab, so keep that in mind.
