More than 250 restaurants will offer lunch and dinner discounts to encourage customers to try new dishes during the second annual Alabama Restaurants Week Aug. 16-25, officials announced today.

The two-course lunch specials will range from $5 to $15 while three-course dinners will cost from $10 to $30, not including tax, tip and drink. Restaurants have the option of offering specials at both lunch and dinner or choosing to offer just lunch or just dinner specials.  

"This is a great time for people to try restaurants in their hometown and other places in the state while saving money," said Alabama Tourism Department Director Lee Sentell.  

Martie Duncan, 2012 Next Food Network Star finalist, will be conducting a tour of participating restaurants during Alabama's Restaurant Week.   She will be sharing her culinary experiences from restaurants all over the state.   The tour will begin in Birmingham heading south to Montgomery, Mobile, Gulf Shores & Orange Beach.  Duncan will return to the Birmingham/Tuscaloosa area heading north to Decatur, Elkmont, Florence, Tuscumbia, Muscle Shoals, and Huntsville.  The tour will end in the Montgomery/Auburn area. 

The Alabama Tourism Department will be using the hash tag #EATALFOOD on all of their social media channels to promote Alabama Restaurant Week and photos of Ms. Duncan's appetizing adventures.
