The Downtown Akron Restaurant Tour has returned for its fifth year, but with a few twists. Formerly Downtown Akron Restaurant Week, the new tour will run now through Sept. 30 and include a passport.
The tour is developed by Downtown Akron Partnership (DAP) Emerging Leaders and encourages the Akron community to explore the dynamic and expanding food scene in Downtown Akron.
Also new this year is an interactive passport. Customers earn stamps for each entree purchased at participating restaurants to redeem for gift certificates at the following levels:
5 stamps=$10 dining certificate
10 stamps=$20 dining certificate
15 stamps=$30 dining certificate
Passports will be available at all participating restaurants and at Downtown Akron Partnership’s office, 103 S. High St., 4th Floor, Akron, OH 44308.
In addition, the Downtown Akron Restaurant Tour expanded to include all meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner, at the participating restaurants. The month-long event showcases 18 Downtown Akron restaurants and bars. Visit www.downtownakron.com/restauranttour for details.
