The results of Las Vegas Restaurant Week are in! From posh Las Vegas Strip eateries to local favorites, 172 restaurants across the valley joined the fight against hunger during the culinary event, raising a record-breaking total of more than $230,000 for Southern Nevada’s only food bank.
This year’s proceeds will help Three Square provide approximately 690,000 meals to the more than 271,000 food insecure residents in Southern Nevada. Since its inception in 2007, Restaurant Week has raised a total of nearly $1.6 million.
From June 18-29, restaurants across the valley offered prix-fixe menus at price points ranging from $20 to $80, with a fixed portion of each meal’s cost supporting Three Square’s mission of providing meals to the one in eight Las Vegans who struggle with hunger. Also, 20 restaurants extended their participation in Restaurant Week through July 6. This included venues at the Venetian and Palazzo Las Vegas, Westgate, Table 34, The Pasta Shop Ristorante and Chef Marc’s Trattoria.
Restaurant Week newcomers, such as Nobu, Black Tap and District One, joined longtime participants including Honey Salt, Tommy Bahama, and Zuma. This year’s top earners include Mesa Grill, Mon Ami Gabi, Charlie Palmer and Buddy V’s Ristorante.
Three Square currently provides more than 37 million meals – the equivalent of more than 45 million pounds of food and grocery product – per year to more than 1,600 community partners including nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools and feeding sites throughout Southern Nevada. Three Square is a member of the Feeding America network of food banks. For additional information visit www.threesquare.org or w
