Detroit Restaurant Week App

Research and reserve for Restaurant Week - from your phone!

Tonight begins the highly anticipated 10-night spring edition of Detroit Restaurant Week.

Our fair city’s Restaurant Week has understandably grown leaps and bounds since it’s inception in 2009.  Last fall nearly 85,000 diners took advantage of the fixed price menus to sample the world-class cuisine available at some of Detroit’s finest dining establishments. Restaurant Week Spring 2011 is expected to attract even more diners, as good news spreads fast.

Chances are, if you read this blog and live in the Detroit metro area, you’ve been anticipating Restaurant Week with great excitement and salivation – planning a meal or five at some of the best 18 restaurants in the city.

Well, your planning just got much easier! There is actually an android app that can help you easily navigate your culinary adventures over the next few days – all from the convenience of your phone!

The Detroit Restaurant Week App, developed by Chris Risner, provides access to the menus, addresses, phone numbers and web sites of all participating restaurants, and gives you a simple way to make reservations through OpenTable. You can even read reviews via Yelp to help you make the sometimes difficult decision about which restaurant to choose.

And yes, the app is FREE! The app is only available for Android users – for now. Risner – a Detroit-based developer – plans to port it to other devices and expand to more cities before the fall restaurant week season.

    Thanks so much for highlighting my Detroit Restaurant Week app, Rebecca. I really love the event and was happy to make something that would enable more people to take advantage of it. If you or anyone else uses it and has feedback or thoughts on how to improve it, I would be more than happy to hear them. I hope everyone enjoys Restaurant Week!
