Changes ahead for 'Restaurant Week' 2014

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The days of culinary categorization, where three course meals are placed into separate monetary categories, have been replaced with specialized menus for 'Restaurant Week' 2014.


The annual culinary event runs from Wednesday, September 3, through Sunday, September 14.

Participating restaurants will offer specially-priced lunch and dinner menus. This marks the first time that restaurants will not be adhering to category tiers of 3 for $20, $30, and $40. Instead, restaurants will have the opportunity to create their own specially-priced menus.

More than 140 restaurants in the lowcountry are participating this year.

The Charleston Restaurant Association suggests patrons make reservations early, as restaurants are expected to fill up quickly.

The Charleston Restaurant Association also offers an app that includes details on parking, food photos, a tip calculators and social shares. The app is is available for download for free in the app store.

Some hotels will also offer discounted rates during 'Restaurant Week.'
