More than 100 restaurants in the greater Las Vegas area have special menus for Las Vegas Restaurant Week, the culinary event in southern Nevada that raises money for the Three Square Food Bank and will benefit the restaurants themselves this year.
Participating restaurants will put together a three-course, specialty, and take-away menu at prices ranging from $ 20 to $ 80. Three Square traditionally collects $ 4 to $ 6 from every meal sold by participating restaurants to feed those in need, but this year Three Square is taking $ 1 per coverage to provide additional support to local restaurants.
Restaurants range from Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse in the Venetian and Marc Vetris Osteria Fiorella in the Red Rock Resort to Yukon Pizza in the Vegas Test Kitchen and Rooster Boy Cafe on Lake Jacqueline.
The 12-day event, June 7-18, has delivered nearly 5.5 million meals since the event began in 2007.
Last year, Three Square suspended Las Vegas Restaurant Week due to the COVID-19 pandemic and focused its efforts on emergency food distribution. Food insecurity in southern Nevada remains above pre-pandemic levels, with nearly 364,000 community members – or one in six – not knowing where their next meal is coming from. Every fourth child now lives in a food insecure household.
