Tomorrow kicks of ten days of deliciousness, as Discover Wauwatosa launches its first-ever Tosa Restaurant week, an event highlighting the wealth of dining options available in the city.=

During the culinary celebration, which runs March 3-13, diners can enjoy special pricing on specially crafted menus created by 12 local food destinations.Offerings include breakfast for $10, three-course lunches for $15, three course dinners priced at $25 or $35 or Tosa tidbits priced at $8 each.

Of course, the goal of a great restaurant week is to support locally owned restaurants. So, feel free to order broadly, and don’t forget to tip on the full value of your meal (not just the discounted price).

Diners can make even more of an impact for local businesses by sharing photos of their Tosa Dining Week meals on social media using #tosarestaurantweek #dineboldly.
