This year’s Lake Geneva Restaurant Week will take place April 23 through May 1, offering both visitors and locals the opportunity to enjoy specially priced dishes from area restaurants.

The event, which celebrates its seventh year, will feature choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner from over 30 participating restaurants, with full menu details available online.

Both dine-in and carry-out options will be available, along with lakeside patio dining as the weather permits.

“This year the chefs wanted to showcase the dishes that define their restaurants,” notes Stephanie Klett, CEO of VISIT Lake Geneva. “It’s a concept we loved given the strong foodie reputation of Lake Geneva, and we think customers will eat it up too.”

In addition to restaurants, local breweries, wineries, sweets shops and culinary-related shops will also be running Restaurant Week specials. Cooking classes will also be available for home chefs through the Lake Geneva School of Cooking.

Participating diners will also receive a ballot at the end of their meal which they can use to vote for a local charity that they would like to see receive a cash award. On May 5, once all ballots are tallied, the charity with the most votes will receive $5,000, with four runners-up receiving $1,000 each. The donations were made possible by a generous donation from Tito’s Handmade Vodka.
