With the coronavirus pandemic upending the restaurant industry, Dunwoody is transforming its usual “Restaurant Week” into “Dunwoody Restaurant Revamp Month.”

The new initiative aims to promote Dunwoody’s restaurants throughout the month of June and encourages residents to support the local businesses by ordering takeout or dining in if they feel comfortable. Restaurant Revamp Month is spearheaded by Discover Dunwoody, which markets the city as a tourism destination.

Dunwoody Restaurant Week was started in 2012 with residents encouraged to take a “food tour” of the city throughout the week, with eateries offering special discounts.

“With the lingering impact of COVID-19, our team came to the realization that Restaurant Week couldn’t happen in the same format as it has in previous years,” said Kimberly Franz, the marketing director for Discover Dunwoody. “Instead, we want to use this opportunity to thank our restaurants and aid in reviving their business through an entire month of marketing support and local love!”

Several restaurants plan to offer special promotions during June, Discover Dunwoody said. Different businesses will also be featured on the Discover Dunwoody Facebook and Instagram accounts. Residents can find a list of restaurants on the Discover Dunwoody website.
