Kansas City Restaurant Week, the premier 10-day dining event for the region, will once again bring hundreds of menus at a multitude of Kansas City-area restaurants to diners, January 18 – 27, 2013. The Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association and the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association announce the fourth annual Kansas City Restaurant Week presented by Quintessential Wines, Young Beverage Co. and US Foods. Gold Plate sponsors for the ten-day event include Country Club Plaza, Liberty Fruit Co., Ink, Kansas City Star, and Page Communications.

The 2012 Kansas City Restaurant Week featured 127 restaurants, an increase of 26 participants from the previous year. The event raised $143,000 for Harvesters – the Community Food Network which, in turn, provided more than 700,000 meals to the hungry in Kansas City. With the anticipation of the biggest Kansas City Restaurant Week to date, the 2013 event will also benefit the Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and The Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, both nonprofit organizations helping advance culinary education and the restaurant and tourism industries in Kansas City.

Kansas City Restaurant Week was created by the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association and the Kansas City Convention & Visitors Association in an effort to support the local restaurant community spanning both sides of the Missouri and Kansas border. 2010 marked the inaugural year for the ten-day event, designed to spotlight Kansas City as one of the country’s premier dining destinations and in partnership with Harvesters – The Community Food Network, to fight hunger in the Kansas City area. The event also benefits The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and The Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Education Foundation, both nonprofit organizations helping to advance culinary education and the restaurant and tourism industries in Kansas City. Kansas City Restaurant Week featured 127 area restaurants in 2012 and raised $143,000 for Harvesters, translating to 700,000 meals served to the hungry in the Kansas City metro area.
