Diners have a range of prix-fixe options from which to choose, with each restaurant often showcasing its best-selling or most unique menu options. Participants range from fine-dining establishments to corner pubs, and highlight the diversity in the local restaurant scene, with enough flavors to keep diners busy trying something new every night of the two-week event.
