The Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), City of Madison and Huntsville representatives, and members of the local hospitality industry gathered to release this year’s participants and special events for Huntsville Restaurant Week.
Over 50 eateries and breweries are participating in this week-long event. The theme this year is “Ten Tasty Days of Deals”, with special prices and menus at participating restaurants.
At most locations, lunch specials include fixed-price selections at $10 or $15 featuring two courses. Dinner specials include selections at $10, $20, $30, and $40 with three courses.
One thing exclusive to Huntsville Restaurant Week is a ‘Bonus Bites’ category at eateries that may not offer a traditional lunch and dinner but offer deserts, appetizers, breakfast, or small bites exclusively.
Local breweries will also be participating. Straight to Ale, Old Black Bear, and InnerSpace breweries will be offering specialty Restaurant Week craft beers.
