#CelebrateDelicious This January on Beautiful, Tropical Galveston Island!
Galveston, TX (PRWEB) January 05, 2017
The sixth annual Galveston Restaurant Week - Saturday, January 7th to Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 - brings Galveston Island's vibrant food scene to life for two full weeks of delicious dining. The event will showcase the freshest ingredients, most flavorful dishes and tastiest culinary gems that Galveston has to offer, as well as benefit Access Care of Coastal Texas.
Home of the finest Gulf Coast seafood and some of Texas's most delectable restaurants, Galveston Island proudly welcomes visitors to Galveston Restaurant Week, where patrons can choose from Galveston's most delightful and delicious eateries for prix-fixe lunch and/or dinner menus. New this year, 2 and/or 3-course dinners will be priced between $20-$35; and 2-course lunches, breakfasts, & brunches will cost between $10-$20.
Last year's event featured a vast array of Galveston Island eateries, and resulted in a very welcome boost during the Island's slower season of winter. Over thirty restaurants to date have committed to the 2017 event.

Restaurant of the Year
Galveston Restaurant Week returns this month, and with it comes the 4th Annual Restaurant of the Year contest. Continuing thru January 19th, the public is invited to vote for their favorite participating Island eatery. At the end of the voting period, the restaurant with the most votes will be named Galveston Restaurant Week Restaurant of the Year. Full details at GalvestonRestaurantWeek.com.
And while your taste buds are celebrating delicious, you can put the guilt aside knowing that your participation in Restaurant Week is helping others. This year, each restaurant participating in Galveston Restaurant Week has committed to help Access Care of Coastal Texas provide weekly lunches to its clients. These lunches provide nutrition for persons with HIV or AIDS. Many times this is the only nutritious meal a client may have that day, or sadly, that week.
Join the Fun
Participating in Galveston Restaurant Week is easy. There are no passes to buy, no coupons to carry, and no cards to punch, only a quick call to the restaurant(s) selected to make reservations; then simply dine out during the period January 7-22, 2017. Reservations are strongly recommended.
The public is invited to experience cuisine that will highlight the fun of dining on Galveston Island. Quite simply, this new culinary tradition promises to "celebrate delicious!" like no other event of the year.
