Back for its 15th year, dsm’s Des Moines Restaurant Week is just days away. Mark your calendars for Aug. 19-28 and make your reservations ASAP. You won’t want to miss your chance to sample the season’s best at 33 of our city’s top restaurants.
Even though the lunch and dinner prix fixe menus are all available at a discounted rate (dinner specials are $40 to $80, and lunches are $15 to $25), the chefs aren’t skimping one bit on the creativity and care for each dish. To wit: Malo’s regional Mexican delights, all inspired by staff members’ home recipes; Django’s Julia Child-inspired feast; and HoQ’s farm-to-table in freshest summer form.
But those are just three of dozens of thoughtful Restaurant Week menu options. After taking a thorough look at all of the menus, I can confirm you can’t go wrong by booking a table at any of the 33 hot spots.
Here are seven dishes in particular that caught my eye.
