  • Mabel's BBQ is one of the participating restaurants in this week's Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week.
These days there's never a shortage of ways to celebrate the Cleveland food scene, and this week the Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week returns to our hungry city to fill that void.

As in year's past, about 45 locally-owned restaurants are scheduled to participate in the Downtown Cleveland Alliance-organized event, which runs through Sunday, March 1.

The deal is pretty simple: $15 at lunch or $30 at dinner gets each participant a three-course meal. Meaning you and your crew can more affordably test out restaurants you wouldn't necessarily try on a normal Thursday.
