NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – If you’re tired of cooking, take a break and try out local eateries for Downtown Norfolk Restaurant Week.

All week long, participating restaurants, including many of Downtown Norfolk’s most popular eateries, will offer delicious, typically three-course meals, both lunch and dinner, at low, fixed prices.

“There are 24 restaurants participating and due to COVID-19 patrons can choose to dine-in or order their food to-go,” said Jessica Kliner of Downtown Norfolk Council.

Kliner said this week-long celebration gives chefs the opportunity to show off their skills and craft new menu items for the public to enjoy. In addition, residents can support local businesses who’ve taken a hit during the pandemic.

“This is always a big week for them in January, typically they have broadway shows and events that bring in a lot of customers. However, those aren’t happening. So we decided to keep this event going,” Kliner added.

Downtown Norfolk Restaurant Week is January 17-24.
