Every June, there's one week in Dunwoody that is bigger, better, and tastier than the others. It's a week where foodies and the fiscally responsible rejoice in unison. It's a week where more than 20 restaurants offer their best dishes for the best discounts. It's the 8th Annual Dunwoody Restaurant Week and it returns June 8-15! There will be lots of options, but not a lot of time, so we've taken the liberty of breaking things down for you. Here's what you can expect:
Burgers and Sandwiches
Burgers and sandwiches are the cornerstone of American cuisine. And they're the cornerstone of Dunwoody Restaurant Week too! Get the freshest burgers around at Farm Burger. All their food is grass-fed, so you'll walk away feeling well-fed.
And there's plenty more beef over at Big Dave's Cheeesteaks. The owner is actually from Philly, so you knew these cheesesteaks are the real deal. For just $15, you can have a fully loaded cheesesteak, six wings, fries, AND a drink for lunch. Come hungry.
Pizza and Pasta
Craving Italian? You won't be for much longer! For a local and charming mom-and-pop marketplace, we recommend E. 48th Street Market. This family owned and operated store also doubles as a restaurant serving Italian sandwiches, desserts, homemade pastas, and casseroles. Romantics frequent Carbonara Trattoria for its ambiance reminiscent of Italy and its carefully selected menu to match. For a family-style and slightly more filling experience, try Novo Cucina who is known for their pizzas, salads, pastas, and homemade gelato.
Get creative at Your Pie by building your own 10 inch pizza to go along with your favorite choice of a side, or get stuffed over at Nancy's Pizzeria with their out of this world deep dish Chicago pizza. Cross over to the New York side of the pizza oven at Empire State Pizza and Growlers, or take yours fresh off the coal at Max's Coal Oven Pizzeria. You can even go gourmet with Mellow Mushroom.
We know it's challenging to decide between all of these restaurants, but that's why we gave you an entire week to work with. With that being said, let's keep going!
It may be Dunwoody Restaurant Week, but our dining experiences take you far beyond the state line. Pull up a seat and take a culinary tour around the world at these Dunwoody favorites - no passport required!

Wine and Dine
Eat, drink, and be merry at Vino Venue. This restaurant and wine bar is both widely known around Atlanta and a local favorite. With a menu that is just as impressive as their wine selection, Vino Venue is always tough to pass up.
Restaurant Week will have no shortage of steak this year with 3 of Atlanta's finest serving up cuts. It's not every day that you can enjoy a premium steak with all the side fixins for less, so you definitely don't want to pass up a visit to McKendrick's Steak House, The Capital Grille, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steakhouse or Fogo de Chao. Our best advice is to pace yourself. With so much to enjoy at such a small cost, you're going to want to savor every juicy bite.
Something for Everybody
Eating with a group of people who all have a taste for something different? Go somewhere all-encompassing, with all the shareable items. Enjoy the flavors of summer with a seasonally-inspired menu from Seasons 52, or keep things evergreen at HOBNOB Neighborhood Tavern. New to Dunwoody Restaurant Week this year is Parkwoods! Located inside the newly renovated Crowne Plaza hotel, you can try the most exquisite of foods during Restaurant Week. Have everything from Quail and Lamb Porterhouse to Nutella Bread Pudding. No objections guaranteed.
