Celebrate a Very ‘Tasty’ Las Vegas Restaurant Week

Where to eat and drink around Las Vegas this week

By  Melinda Sheckells

(Editor’s Note: Tasty Tuesday airs on KTNV Channel 13 on Tuesdays at 11:20 a.m.)

This week, every day is “Tasty” thanks to Three Square’s annual Restaurant Week, which features dozens of Las Vegas restaurants where you can dine and support the fight against hunger in our community. Restaurant Week is a great excuse to get out and try new dining experiences in Las Vegas. Now in its 14th year, the annual 12-day event, held every spring, encourages people to dine out for a good meal, a good value and a good cause.

Las Vegas restaurants offer three-course prix fixe menus, donating a small portion of proceeds to Three Square Food Bank. By dining out, you are helping Three Square reach its goal of feeding hungry families and individuals in Southern Nevada.
