“Every other ticket seems to be a restaurant week ticket which is good,” Ogden said. 

The French Restaurant at Desert Shores is just one of more than 200 restaurants coming together to offer a special menu. 

“When we crafted this menu we really tried to do something for everyone the lunch menu we have a burger we have a vegetarian dish,” Rhonda Wyatt, the owner of Marche Bacchus said.

Wyatt said taking part in Restaurant Week goes beyond just eating out, as a portion of the guest’s check goes to Three Square Food Bank. 

“We know that hunger in Southern Nevada is an issue we love being part of a restaurant community that is rallying around Three Square,” 

Three Square is one of Nevada’s largest food banks. 

“Things have gotten better but we still have a lot of need in the community,” Beth Martino, CEO of Three Square said.
