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

Celebrate Restaurant week two ways in the Spring Mountain Corridor and a bonus event where you can learn about the wonders of natural wine.

This week, everyday 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. Tasty Week features two local restaurants with must-try Restaurant Week menus that range in price from $20 to $80—now through June 18. 

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.
