Fort Worth foodies looking for a dining deal best make haste: The inaugural Winter Restaurant Week is happening now, when restaurants throughout Tarrant County offer three-course, fixed-priced menus for $29, $39, or $49 per person.

More important than the deal is the cause. A portion of proceeds — $5, $6, or $7 per meal — goes to a local charity selected by the restaurant. Those include Fort Worth Dream Park, Grace Grapevine, or the Tarrant Area Food Bank.

Participants include Little Red Wasp, Dagwood’s, Grace, Lili’s Bistro, Reata, Righteous Foods, and Wild Mushroom. Eyeball all the menus online at 360westmagazine.com.

For example, Little Red Wasp is offering a choice of two soups or salad, short rib or shrimp and grits, and doughnut holes for $39. Dagwood’s has a bigger selection for $29 — smoked meatballs or chicken lacquered lollipops as a starter; Akaushi beef brisket, shrimp and grits, or smoked chicken pasta as a main; and bourbon cake or season fruit crisp for dessert — plus Texas craft beer pairings for an additional $8.

Official end date is Sunday, January 17, although several restaurants are extending their special menus for an extra week or two.
