Sometimes you can have it all. Ogden Restaurant Week is a delicious example.
The sixth annual event will feature special discounted menus to encourage residents and visitors to explore Ogden’s locally owned restaurants and bars from April 12-21.
“Ogden Restaurant Week is a great time to get out and revisit your favorite restaurants or try something new,” Sydnie Furton, marketing and public relations manager for Visit Ogden, said. “Ogden Restaurant Week provides a great opportunity to try new things on the menu and to indulge a little more with an appetizer and dessert without breaking the bank.”
At least 20 participating establishments will offer fixed two-course lunch or three-course dinner menus, designed to showcase their unique culinary offerings. The two-course meal is $10 and the three-course meal is $17.
“Angry Goat Pub and Kitchen is our newest restaurant that we would like to welcome to Ogden Restaurant Week,” Furton said.
While other cities in Utah host similar events, Ogden’s food-centered extravaganza stands out with its focus on libations and its appeal to foodies of all diets and preferences.
“One thing that I find unique about Ogden Restaurant Week is we have two amazing bars participating: Lighthouse Lounge and Angry Goat Pub and Kitchen,” Furton said. “Most bars are thought of for the ambiance and drinks first and their dining options second. Both of these bars have amazing menus with offerings for the meat-lover, vegetarian and vegan diner.”
Below is a list of restaurants that signed on as of early February, but Furton said she expects to add at least five more before April. The final list of 2018 participants and menus will be posted in March at OgdenRestaurantWeek.com.
Restaurants participating so far:
Roosters Brewing Co.
Lucky Slice Pizza
Iggy’s Sports Grill
Hearth on 25th
Thai Curry Kitchen
Angry Goat Pub and Kitchen
Warren’s Craft Burger
How to get the most out of Restaurant Week:
Step 1 – Look at menus. With so many restaurants to choose from, you’ll want to start exploring your options as soon as the menus are posted online.
Step 2 – Choose the restaurants you want to visit. Perhaps the hardest step of all is choosing from the list of over 20 great eateries. Try getting out of your comfort zone by selecting places you’ve never been.
Step 3 – Make reservations. They definitely aren’t required, but it’s always nice to know your table is waiting for you.
Step 4 – Make a night of it. There are plenty of things to do around downtown Ogden, so why not take the deal and then some? See a movie at the Megaplex Theatres, catch some waves at the Flowrider or paint a picture at Liquid Canvas. See VisitOgden.com for more ideas.
