It’s been a tough year for restaurants across the metro since the last KC Restaurant Week.

The dining industry has been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. But organizers of this year’s event says it’s a chance for diners to not only enjoy the metro’s diverse culinary offerings at an affordable price, but also support local restaurants and bars in a time of need.

And as in years past, Johnson Countians will have plenty of options to choose from in their neck of the woods.

Here is some key information on KC Restaurant Week 2021:

The dates

  • KC Restaurant Week 2021 will run from Friday, Jan. 8, to Sunday, Jan. 17, with menu options for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day.
