Charleston Restaurant Week kicks off Thursday

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A number of restaurants throughout the Lowcountry are giving the public a chance to try incredible three-course meals for a reduced price.

Charleston Restaurant Week returns to the Lowcountry January 10-20, 2013. Over 120 restaurants will offer pre-set menus consisting of three courses for a fixed price: either $20, $30, or $40. The price depends on the restaurant.

The event gives the public a chance to enjoy some of Charleston's delicious cuisine for a price that is easy on the wallet. Reservations are recommended for most spots, as the participating restaurants can get pretty busy during the week.

The Charleston Restaurant Association has developed an iPhone app that will allow users to quickly and easily search Restaurant Week deals and specials, and find which of the participating restaurants are near you. The app also features a tip calculator, and a function to take pics and quickly post them to social media sites.

Just search "Charleston Restaurant Association" for the app.
