Sure, it's called "Restaurant Week" -- but around here, we're kicking off a whole MONTH's worth of specials!

Our local small businesses have got meal deals for just $8 from now through Friday, August 18.

Plus, there are prizes: Be one of the first 10 people to post an Instagram photo of yourself with your Uptown Restaurant Week special, and you'll win a free Fresh Food Box. To be entered to win, tag @uptowngrandcentral and the participating restaurant. Let the eating begin!
