Dozens of restaurants across middle Tennessee are offering special discounts as part of Nashville Restaurant Week.
More than 30 locally owned establishments are participating in the semi-annual event, which runs Aug. 19-25.
The participating restaurants are members of the Nashville Originals independent restaurant association.
"Restaurant Week is a celebration of Nashville's incredible dining scene, and the importance of supporting locally owned restaurants," said Tom Loventhal, president of Nashville Originals. "What we eat matters, and where we eat becomes a part of our culture. These restaurants are supporting each other, employing local people and buying from local suppliers. That's what community is all about."
Many participating restaurants are offering three-course dinners featuring an appetizer or salad, entrée and dessert for $20.13.
At other member restaurants, three-course dinners for $30.13 are on the menu.
Nero's Grill and Noshville locations are giving diners even bigger incentives: Nero's two-course lunch menu is only $12.13, while at Noshville Delicatessen two diners eat for $20.13 at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
