Savor Fort Wayne has a warmer feel this year as we celebrate this popular restaurant week in August for the first time! Traditionally held in January, this special summer edition is poised to bring much-needed love and business to our local restaurants and our neighbors who run them.
Enjoy 12 delicious days of 3-course menu deals, August 5-16, with these tips for making the most of Summer Savor Fort Wayne.
What to Expect During Summer Savor Fort Wayne 2020
These 7 tips are your recipe for a perfect night out (or night in with carryout options!) during Summer Savor.
1. Outdoor Dining Options
As health and safety remain top of mind, many restaurants are offering outdoor seating in addition to their indoor dining. This is definitely a perk of enjoying a summer restaurant week! You can choose to enjoy your Savor meal under the shade of an awning on an outdoor patio by checking our list of participating restaurants – look for the sunshine icon marking which restaurants offer this option.
2. Want to Stay In? Opt for Carryout
A new offering for this edition of Summer Savor is the option for carryout. If you would rather place your order by phone or online, and take it to-go, many restaurants are offering carryout versions of their Savor menu. Look for the shopping bag symbol on our list of participating restaurants to find which eateries are offering this service.
3. Consider Making Reservations
With many restaurants spacing out seating for social distancing, dining rooms are filling up fast. Consider calling ahead to make a reservation. Some restaurants who have not offered reservation seating in the past are now offering this service in order to seat guests promptly and efficiently, so check in with the restaurant ahead of time to see if this is an option.
4. Hotel Packages
Coming in from out of town, or want to make your night into a staycation? Take a look at our list of hotel packages ranging from romantic escapes and girlfriend getaways to family "microcations." Find a great hotel package to fit your stay here.
5. 21+ Restaurants
Whether you plan to make it a family meal, or relax with friends, some restaurants are better for an adult evening out. Keep in mind that these participating restaurants are 21+ only:
- Chops Wine Bar
- Club Soda
- Copper Spoon
- Roko at HT2
6. Plan Your Restaurant Week Meals
