April 14 to April 18 and April 21 to April 25: Spring Tacoma Restaurant Week

Taking place for select weeks in April (April 14 to April 18 and April 21 to April 25), Spring Tacoma Restaurant Week has returned with some of the best dining deals in town. During this Washington restaurant week, diners can expect prix-fixe menus highlighting the best of each restaurant’s offerings. These include plates from Adriatic Grill at Oakbrook, Copper and Salt Northwest, El Gaucho Tacoma, Farrelli’s Pizza Point Ruston, Lobster Shop, Melting Pot Tacoma, Poquitos Mexican, Stanley & Seafort’s and WildFin American Grill. El Gaucho Tacoma, for example, will be boasting a three-course menu, with fixings including your choice of spring salad or Insane Truffle Soup; your choice of a 6-oz. top sirloin, grilled prawn pasta or oven-roasted cauliflower; and for dessert, your choice of key lime pie or a seasonal sorbet. 

Beyond the delectable dishes, Tacoma Restaurant Week also provides a unique opportunity to support local businesses and chefs who are passionate about showcasing the flavors of the Pacific Northwest. By patronizing participating restaurants, diners not only enjoy a vibrant culinary experience but also contribute to the vibrancy of Tacoma’s culinary landscape. This sense of community and pride in supporting local businesses adds a special flavor to the dining experiences. For more information, visit tacomarestaurantweek.com.
