Beyond The Strand: Galveston Restaurant Week aims to prove there's more to theisland
January might not be a time when many Houstonians plan a trip to beachy Galveston, but residents are out to prove there's more on the island than summertime fun. Sunday kicks off the first-ever Galveston Restaurant Week, with 30 restaurants participating.
But this isn't your typical deal. Galveston Restaurant Week, which lasts through Jan. 21, isn't going with a single price point. Instead, each restaurant is designing its own deal or prix fixe menu and choosing its own prices, ranging from $10 to $45 in increments of $5.
Sound confusing? It doesn't have to be. Galveston.com has a list of participating restaurants and an interactive guide to show customers which restaurants are participating throughout the week, what their menus are and how much they cost. You could choose lunch at Saltwater Grill ($10) or Tremont Cafe ($20) or have dinner at The M&M ($25) or Gaido's ($45).
Unlike Houston Restaurant Weeks, there's no charity donation included, but restaurant week diners can win a cruise for two by taking a picture enjoying their GRW meal and posting it to the GRW Facebook page or at galvestonrestaurantweek.com. You can enter one photo per restaurant, and fans vote on the winner.
