If you don't get your fill of ethnic food at the main event on Sept. 9, this Sunday also marks the beginning of the 5th Annual Peabody Restaurant Week, although it's technically a fortnight of food.
Restaurant Week, which is part of the International Festival, goes from Sept. 9-13 and then again from Sept. 16-20 at 16 different participating Peabody eateries, which should cover a wide range of palates.
This year, has more variety in the pricing of special fixed menus. Most restaurants are offering a three-course meal for $20 or something close to that, while you can also pick up a dozen chocolate covered strawberries for $15 at Edible Arrangements or a four-course feast at P.F. Chang's for $39.95.
The local establishments participate this year are: Brothers Kouzina, Burtons Grill, Century House, Chick-fil-A, Edible Arrangements, Joe's American Bar & Grill, Nordstrom Cafe Bistro, Paddy Kelly's Restaurant & Pub, P.F. Chang's, Sophia's at the Peabody Marriott, Stonewood Tavern, Su-Chang's Restaurant, Sugar Cane, Sylvan Street Grille and the Wardhurst Grille.
