Tosa Restaurant Week is underway. Here’s where to eat this year.

Discover Wauwatosa

Unlike made-up holidays (National No Beard Day, National Wagyu Day, etc.), restaurant weeks are something we need more of. Around these parts, we have Downtown Dining Week, Southside Dining Week and Taste & Toast, just to name a couple. Wauwatosa jumped on the idea a few years ago, and right now the city’s third annual Tosa Restaurant Week is offering specials at participating restaurants through March 23.

While the event technically runs for 10 days, let’s not get caught up in semantics and appreciate that we can pay less to enjoy food and drink ranging from the solid to the spectacular. Wonderfully, there is a LOT of food and drink to choose from this year. You can find the full (and extensive) list below, and be sure to visit the Tosa Restaurant Week website for each participant’s hours and more information.
