Restaurant Week returns to the Motor City on Friday, February 3rd and more than two dozen restaurants are ready to tempt your taste buds with specially crafted menus. The 2017 edition will last for ten nights, through February 12th.

It's easy to join the fun. Find a participating restaurant on the Detroit Restaurant Week website, make a reservation, and ask for the special Restaurant
Week menu. The restaurants are offering two price points: an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $29 or $39 depending on where you go.

The folks from Traffic Jam & Snug recently appeared on Local 4 News to show off some of their creations. The restaurant's entire menu for Restaurant
Week is below. The desserts look particularly delicious, an ice cream cheesecake, raspberry Tirami Su and a special bread and butter pudding.

Other restaurants on the list include 24 Grille, El Barzón, Detroit Seafood Market, Ottava Via, Republic Tavern, and The Rattlesnake. See the complete list here.
