The day we’ve all been waiting for is finally here: Menus for all 107 of this year’s Inlander Restaurant Week participants are now live on the IRW website and ready to be drooled over!

This year’s event is once again bigger than ever, and North Idaho is giving those of us across the state line in Washington a run for our money with a record-breaking 28 eateries participating across Coeur d’Alene, Post Falls and Worley, Idaho.

Restaurant Week 2018 brings plenty of other newness with 12 restaurants that have never participated before, including several spots that weren’t even open last year, like Palouse Bar and Grill, Cascadia Public House and Vine & Olive.

Back this year for the sixth installment of Restaurant Week are 24 local dining mainstays that have participated every year since the event’s inception back in 2013, which featured 53 restaurants.

To keep up with increasing costs for goods and labor, prices for Restaurant Week’s three-course menus had to bump up a notch, as diners will notice, to either $21 or $31 per person. That’s still a heck of a bargain for a three-course meal. And, as guests of previous years’ events know, there’s often no better time than IRW to check out new spots, or make a pilgrimage to your tried-and-true favorites.

Once again, Restaurant Week’s chosen beneficiary is local nonprofit Second Harvest, which works tirelessly to make sure people across the region have access to nutritious and healthy food. Last year, diners during Restaurant Week donated enough for Second Harvest to provide more than 44,700 meals. You can help out when you dine out by adding a donation to your check, and by sharing your #IRWRaveReviews on social media to prompt a donation from event partner Sysco foods.

Now that you have the complete run-down of this year’s events (if you stopped reading this and instantly clicked the link to browse menus, we totally forgive you), it’s time to start planning all the spots you’ll be dining at during the “10 most delicious days of the year.”
