If you haven’t taken advantage of all the deals of 318 Restaurant Week, get to eating…you only have two days (Friday and Saturday) left!
13 downtown eateries signed on to the popular restaurant promotion started several years ago by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau.
There have been some stellar meals had already this week, based on social media posts, including the ‘Have It Your Way’ Burger deal at Retro Down Town Cafe which includes 6 different burger options, fries, a hipster salad, a drink, and if you eat in the restaurant, one of Cassie Eaby’s delicious brownies a la mode, ALL for $10. Try to beat that price, if you can!
Others are raving about the Abby Singer’s pineapple bowls (Chef Tootie had to make a special grocery store run earlier this week when they blew through their pineapple stash) and the 3-fer special of half sandwich, soup and salad at Red River Brewpub.
No matter which restaurant you choose, we think you will enjoy the food, the atmosphere and the service and hopefully, you will come back for more after 318 Restaurant Week is gone.
