Deal-hunters will be pleased to learn that CBS DFW has announced the dates for this year’s Restaurant Week — an event where diners can reserve tables at over a hundred Dallas fine dining restaurants at a discount, (last year, including local Seasons 52,) — for Aug. 11-17. For each RW reservation made, a portion of the tab is donated to North Texas food Bank or Lena Pope Home, a nonprofit benefitting orphans in Fort Worth. Last year’s RW raised over $754,000 for charity. Participating restaurants typically aren’t announced until July.
