Great news for my fellow food lovers: We don’t have to wait until November for Restaurant Week! International Market Place is starting one of its own from April 10 to 16, showcasing special prix fixe menus from Eating House 1849, Flour & Barley, Goma Tei, Kona Grill, Stripsteak and Yauatcha.

unspecified

International Market Place has boldly started its own Grand Lanai Restaurant Week.

Prix fixe menus are a good way to try multiple items on a restaurant’s menu, for less than the cost of the individual dishes. Plus they take the guesswork out of ordering. International Market Place has also planned fun food events for the week, including a poke bowl contest and mixologist battle.

All the restaurants are offering their Restaurant Week deals in addition to their regular menus.
