A Local’s Guide to Traverse City Restaurant Week



Group drinking cider at Taproot


Alas, it goes without saying that this is still a difficult time to dine out. COVID-19 continues to rock the restaurant world, and Traverse City is no exception. 

If you’re looking for outdoor dining, consider Taproot Cider House, which offers farm-to-table dining and an extensive cider menu along with limited reservable enclosed outdoor seating pods. Farm Club, while not participating in Restaurant Week pricing, also has reservable outdoor seating options, like space around a fire pit, or the Shepherd’s Tent, which is specifically booked for a ‘chef’s table’ style of experience. 

Wherever you decide to eat, be sure to be kind and extend your own hospitality to those opening their doors for you by following their regulations

With these recommendations in mind, you’re set to dine out like a local during Traverse City’s most delicious time of the year. You can find menus from every participating restaurant on the Downtown Traverse City Restaurant Week site! Start your planning (and drooling) there.
