Restaurant Week in the QCA gives me a chance to try some new places without doing much damage to my bank account!

According to the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau, the 6th annual event starts today and runs through March 4. Local restaurants are offering specials like 30% off flatbreads at Brew In The Village, Davenport.

Barley & Rye Bistro, Moline is offering a 4 course dinner for only $30 featuring Steak Carbonara, and Scallop & Bacon Linguine just to mention a few.

No coupons are needed, but you might want to mention Restaurant Week when you make a reservation. There are plenty of lunch specials too like Panini & Friends, downtown Davenport is offering a 20 oz. drink, and 8 oz. side (macaroni or pasta salad, coleslaw, or chips) for $8.50.

I'm hungry; gotta run! For more details go to QCRestaurantweek.com.
