The "10 most delicious days of the year" are back and, once again, bigger than ever. For the sixth inception of Inlander Restaurant Week, a total of 107 restaurants spread across the Inland Northwest have created mouth-watering, three-course menus especially for the highly anticipated annual event.

Seasoned diners know about Restaurant Week's fixed price (or prix fixe) three-course menus, offered for $21 or $31 per person. But for the uninitiated (welcome, newbies!), this price includes your choice of one of several options for each course. Some eateries take a more traditional route with a soup or salad, followed by an entrée and dessert, while others mix things up and include cocktails or draft beer in place of a course, or appetizers to share with the whole table.

"Restaurant Week gives people who wouldn't normally come visit your restaurant a reason to come and dine at your restaurant," says Luna's executive chef, Joseph Morris. "It's also a platform to showcase what your restaurant is all about."
