Gig Harbor Restaurant Week (March 6-19)


Bella Taylor, Student Life/News

Last month, the foodies of Gig Harbor gathered for this annual downtown restaurant week! The event was from March 6th-19th and was an absolute blast. There are many unique restaurants around Gig Harbor, and not all participate. However, you should still attend to support the great local businesses around town.

A little background for those who don’t know about this community event, the Downtown Alliance of Gig Harbor announced that the week of March 6th-19th was reserved for showing off the diverse cuisine at the waterfront community, with the participating restaurants having special menus and deals.

The returning partakers in this event include Anthony’s, Brimstone PNW Smokehouse, Iscreamery, Brix 25, Devoted Kiss Cafe, El Pueblito, Millville Pizza Co., Gig Harbor Brewing, and Heritage Distilling Co. We have some new partners as well like the new Gig Harbor Thai Cuisine and the new seafood restaurant Cuttlefish. The final partners are all 21+ options, such as Hop Pharm, Morso Market, and Bistro. 

Now everyone is wondering what these fantastic deals were. Devoted Kiss Cafe had an excellent selection of savory and sweet entrees, all homemade and with a free side of cornbread with honey drizzle. For lunch/dinner, Antony’s had their excellent waterfront seafood. Still, with a twist, you could have amazing appetizers, mouth-watering entrees, and a delectable dessert as a three-course meal! Brimstone would be a hit if you were into good old barbecue. They had a taco plate with your choice of meat and an additional margarita for $6! Who loves pizza? Millville Pizza Co. had two deals. You could get a panuozzo, cookie, and soft drink for the lunch deal, and for the dinner deal, you could get a salad, pizza or lasagna, and a glass of wine per person, with a pizookie (a cookie in the shape of a pizza) to finish it all off.

The Gig Harbor community has many fun activities for all ages. Restaurant Week is meant to open everyone’s taste palettes and allow them to step out of their comfort zone. It never hurts to try something new!
