More than 100 restaurants in the greater Las Vegas region rolled out special menus for Las Vegas Restaurant Week, the Southern Nevada culinary event that raises money for Three Square Food Bank and this year, benefiting restaurants themselves.
Participating restaurants put together a three-course menu, specialty menus, and takeout menus at price points ranging from $20 to $80. Three Square traditionally collects $4 to $6 of every meal sold from participating restaurants to help feed those in need of food, but this year, in order to provide additional support to local restaurants, Three Square is taking $1 per cover.
Restaurants range from Emeril Lagasse’s Delmonico Steakhouse at the Venetian and Marc Vetri’s Osteria Fiorella at Red Rock Resort to Yukon Pizza at the Vegas Test Kitchen and Rooster Boy Cafe on Lake Jacqueline.
The 12-day event June 7-18 provided nearly 5.5 million meals since the event that started in 2007.
Last year, Three Square suspended Las Vegas Restaurant Week due to the COVID-19 pandemic and to focus its efforts on emergency food distribution. Food insecurity in Southern Nevada remains above pre-pandemic levels with nearly 364,000 community members — or one in six — who do not know where their next meal will come from. One in four children is now living in a food-insecure household.
