Restaurant Week in Esky is an opportunity to reconnect with your favorite restaurant or to try a new one. It's also a time for restaurants to put their best foot forward to showcase what makes them special. Some are debuting new menu items. Others are pairing up specials for you to try. And still others are offering new items to gauge your reaction. There are plenty of places to eat along Ludington Street, from quick fare to fine dining. Our restaurants look forward to serving you. It's time to raise a fork and lift a city! Bon Appetit.
