Las Vegas Restaurant Week lets you eat well and help feed others

Las Vegas
Las Vegas' Restaurant Week lets you enjoy fine food and contribute to a good cause -- a food bank

Great food is part of the Las Vegas experience and Restaurant Week provides an opportunity to savor some fine fare while helping a charity.

More than 150 restaurants featuring a variety of cuisines will participate Aug. 22-28. Proceeds help support Three Square, Southern Nevada’s only food bank.

Las Vegas Restaurant Week, now in its eighth year, offers diners the opportunity to enjoy prix fixe, three-course lunches and dinners at prices from $20.14 to $50.14.

For each meal sold, restaurants will donate between $4 and $6 to Three Square. Since Restaurant Week began in 2007, it has raised more than $850,000 for the food bank.

Most of the restaurants have previously participated in the event, and most are along the Strip. They include:

--Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas

--Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace

--Rose Rabbit Lie at Cosmopolitan

--The Steak House at Circus Circus

--Top of the World at Stratosphere

The twice-yearly event will feature 11 newcomers this month.

For $30.14, Double Helix Wine & Whiskey Lounge (at Town Square, 6599 Las Vegas Blvd. South) will serve a dinner that begins with an appetizer of stacked watermelon and feta cheese, followed by a chicken po-boy or steak au poivre entrée. The meal concludes with espresso crème brûlée.

The dinner at Phil’s Italian Steakhouse (at Treasure Island, 3300 Las Vegas Blvd. South) will offer various choices for $50.14. The entrees include an 8-ounce filet mignon and herb-crusted halibut.

A complete list of restaurants and menus can be found online.
