Reno Bites Restaurant Week
October 8 - October 21
Discover great culinary talent at the end of your fork!
Revel in Reno’s distinctive culinary culture during the 7th annual restaurant week filled with dining specials at dozens of local restaurants and experiential, food-focused events. Taste fantastic fare created by skilled chefs, explore new restaurants or revisit old favorites. Don’t miss the exhilarating Chef Showdown which pits the area’s top chefs in a cooking competition for bragging rights and prizes.
The event encourages exploration of local restaurants and discovery of the diverse talents of local chefs. Participating restaurants offer $10, $20 or $30 dining specials during the two-week celebration of local food culture, while guests can also select from their regular menu items.
Two events will further spotlight the local food scene:
- Thursday, Oct. 11: the Midtown Walkabite will guide guests through multiple courses at several Midtown Reno restaurants beginning at 6 p.m.
- Saturday, Oct. 20: The Chef’s Showdown features eight local chefs going head-to-head in a culinary battle, preparing a dish from secret ingredients in just one hour for tasting by a panel of judges. Three winning chefs receive prizes, while spectators can take part in a free raffle, and enjoy food and drink samples. Beginning at 2 p.m., the competition will take place in the eight gourmet kitchens at Czyz’s Appliance and is free to the public.
It’s a great excuse to experience tasty cuisine; your taste-buds will thank you!
