Tacoma Restaurant Week actually takes place over two weeks running Oct. 16-20 and Oct. 23-27, 2022. Each restaurant will offer a three course dinner ranging from $30 to $58 and the restaurants open for lunch will offer a two course lunch ranging from $15 to $25.

Tacoma Restaurant Week is a great excuse to catch up with friends you haven't seen in awhile or to plan your next date night. It is also the opportunity to try a restaurant you haven't eaten at before at a lower price point.

This fall, 12 restaurants are participating including, Farrelli's Pizza (Tacoma Sixth Ave. location only), Bar Bistro, Crudo & Cotto, The Adriatic at Oakbrook, Melting Pot Tacoma, The Social, WildFin American Grill, Stanford's Steak, Millhouse Restaurant, Copper & Salt at Point Ruston, Marzano Italian Restaurant and Table 47 at Ocean 5.

Restaurant menus are posted at Check it out to help decide where to eat. For example, Copper & Salt is offering both lunch and dinner restaurant week specials.

For the second course, the choice is between Cacio e Pepe with bucatini, pecorino romano, black pepper, and burro; or Grilled Tuna with garbanzo puree, za'tar, watercress, lemon, and brown butter.
