DETROIT - Detroit Restaurant Week (DRW) is back!

Seventeen Detroit fine dining establishments will serve-up specially-priced three course dinners beginning Friday, September 28 through Sunday, October 7, 2012 for only $30 per person.

"Detroit Restaurant Week began as a way to introduce people to the finer dining establishments and has evolved into a staple event that people come to expect every spring and fall; just like they do similar promotions in other cities across the country," said Dana Boyette, DRW restaurant relations manager.

Reservations are still strongly recommended, even after six installments of DRW.

The spring edition earlier this year enticed more than 38,000 people to have dinner at a participating restaurant. Since its inception in 2009, DRW has had an economic impact of more than $5 million for the restaurants thanks to the nearly 200,000 people that have taken advantage of the dining deal.

Changes in the restaurant business have caused the number of participating restaurants to fluctuate over the years. This fall some restaurants that regularly participate are undergoing renovations that will not be completed before DRW begins; restaurants that have opened in recent months are still reaping the benefits of their newness; and others have shifted their focus away from fine dining.

Boyette points out though that the creation of Detroit Restaurant Week has never been about the number of diners, or the number of restaurants that participate. He says the intention has always been to "create memorable experiences that will keep people coming back to the participating restaurants and the city of Detroit."

For the seventh installment the 17 restaurants participating in the biannual fine dining event are:
