The Restaurant Week concept is basically a week or 10 day long promotion of fixed priced lunch and dinner menus at a city’s finest restaurants, at a fraction of the price. The event has now
stretched to London, Dubai and Cape Town, to name a few. Since Nairobi has evolved into such a city of food lovers, it’s only natural that we host our own.
It is the second time that Nairobi is hosting this global dining phenomenon. Between January 22nd and February 1st, patrons will be able to experience a special menu at the city’s top restaurants—50 restaurants to be exact—in partnership with Magnum Cream Liqueur.
Nairobi Restaurant Week is about applauding the finest food the city has to offer. The top chefs are expending all their culinary skills so that restaurant goers can experience a one off, limited edition celebratory menu, that showcases their culinary ingenuity and innovation. Nairobi’s best restaurants will be offering a 3-course prix fixe menu for Ksh 1000 to Ksh 1500 for lunch and Ksh 1500 to Ksh 2000 for dinner.
