A grassroots effort by restaurant owners saved the popular restaurant week in the Fox Cities, and it starts today.
Kimberly Finnell of Osorio’s Latin Fusion in Grand Chute is one of the organizers. She says they emailed the participants from the first two years, and 23 agreed to join in this year.
They’re calling it Fox Valley Restaurant Tour Week, and it runs through next Wednesday.
Finnell says all restaurants are offering fixed-priced, three course meals. She says there are three options — a $12 lunch, a $25 dinner, and a $35 dinner. She says some restaurants have one or two available, while others are doing all three.
The list of restaurants, and their special menus, are online at foxvalleyfood.com. There’s also a Facebook page.
