The event's mission is to give diners an incredible meal for a great value at leading area restaurants - and by the looks of which restaurants are participating, this event is destined to be just that!

The way it works is diners pay $50.20 per couple or $50.20 per person, depending on the restaurant, for an incredible 3-course meal at popular Louisville restaurants. This is a great opportunity for guests to try out restaurants that they've never been to and some restaurants may even offer a cocktail or wine with your meal! Some of the restaurants participating include: Amici Cafe, Martini Italian Bistro, AP Crafters, The Oakroom, Bistro 301, Decca, and many, many more.

Additionally, when you dine out during 502 Restaurant Week, you are helping Louisville's Dare to Care Food Bank serve those who are in need. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Dare to Care.
