318 Restaurant Week is a week-long culinary project of the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau and has returned for the dates of March 15 TH-20 TH . This event consists of six days of deals at Shreveport-Bossier eateries, offering dining patrons $10 lunch specials, $20 dinner specials, and various
dining experiences at participating restaurants. This year, dining patrons were able to download a free 318 Restaurant Week app that lists all the participating restaurants and their specials.
The MS KICK tenants participating in the 318 Restaurant Week are Taylor’d Eatz, that specializes in Authentic Jamaican cuisine, Vegans on the Run, a family owned business that offers Southern Comfort Vegan food, and Big Nate’s BBQ, home of the “Big Nasty”, which is a quarter pound of hamburger meat,
pulled pork, sausage topped with coleslaw and barbecue sauce on a bun. This is the first year for these businesses to participate and they have pulled out the stops to attract new customers and keep their loyal fans coming back for more.
There’s never been a more critical time for our community to support restaurants hit by COVID-19 and Winter Storm Uri than during318 Restaurant Week,” said Brandy Evans, vice president of communications at the Tourist Bureau. “March 15-20 is the best week for foodies to discover their new favorite dish while supporting homegrown restaurants.”
Tenant, Robyne Moore-Taylor was interviewed by KTBS and asked how will this week benefit her and other local eateries to which she responded, ” 318 Restaurant Week is important because it allows our businesses to be showcased on a larger scale and the exposure can do wonders for other small businesses like mine.”
