Pace yourself through a three-course dinner during the fifth annual Clayton Restaurant Week Summer Edition from July 16 to 22, and help a good cause when you get the check.

Clayton Restaurant Week offers a chance to try 17 of Clayton’s best restaurants, including 801 Fish, C.J. Muggs, Crushed Red, Pastaria and Sardella, among others. Vegetarian and vegan options are available at vendors like The Bao and Barcelona.

Dinner is either $25 or $35, depending on the restaurant, and you can add an Extra Helping to your bill – a $5 donation made directly to Operation Food Search, a local nonprofit that provides health education and food to the community. Last summer, more than 11,000 diners participated in the event, which raised more than $4,000 for Operation Food Search.

“Proceeds only go to Operation Food Search if you donate when you get your bill,” said Jordan Eichenauer, event coordinator at Synergy Productions, the company that organizes the event. “The suggested donation is $5, but you can do as much or as little as you want. It’s pretty amazing what [Operation Food Search] can do to stretch a dollar.”

Although there are no tickets or vouchers for the event, participating restaurants often fill up fast, so Eichenauer encouraged patrons to make reservations via OpenTable or by calling the restaurant of your choice and mentioning Restaurant Week.

Select restaurants will offer their normal menus alongside the Clayton Restaurant Week specials, which often feature favorites from the regular menu.
