Traverse City Restaurant Week is here (woot woot!) featuring special three-course menus at 30 participating restaurants for $25 or $35 per person. The annual Traverse City event is a great way to try new dishes from your favorite area restaurants or check out a new eatery in town.

View the menus on Downtown TC’s Restaurant Week page. A few items that immediately caught my eye: bourbon apple pie at Forrest, lime chicken at The Good Bowl and mushroom bisque topped with duck confit at Mammoth Distilling.

Indoor dining in Michigan is limited to 25 percent capacity due to COVID-19. Restaurant Week has been extended an extra week this year to allow for more people to enjoy it. Reservations are encouraged. Some restaurants are also offering to-go menus, including amical and Trattoria Stella, but not all.
