Get out and explore what Kalamazoo restaurants have to offer.

If you’ve been wanting to try a downtown restaurant for the first time or revisit one (and there are more than 30 of them), then July has the week you’ve been waiting for.

Downtown Kalamazoo Summer Restaurant Week, from July 21–29 (OK, that’s two days more than a week, but in this case it’s a good thing), is a celebration of the downtown area’s fresh, fun dining scene. The best part: prix fixe (fixed price) menus with such deals as $10 lunch and shareables to $25 and $35 dinner options for one or two. And with downtown establishments’ bartenders engaging in the second annual Summer Cocktail Competition at the same time, there is food and drink to look forward to.

To add to the delicious fun, Restaurant Week will be kicked off with the annual Salsa Cook-Off, in which you can visit participating downtown Kalamazoo shops, restaurants and breweries to sample delicious salsa concoctions and then vote for your favorite. The cook-off runs from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. July 21.
