It may be the most wonderful time of year for Northeast Ohio foodies: two restaurant weeks offering delicious deals will happen practically back-to-back.

Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week runs from Friday, Feb. 17 to Sunday, Feb. 26. Organized by the Downtown Cleveland Alliance, the week features dining spots offering deals in a range of special fixed prices.

Just a few days later, Cleveland Restaurant Week is upon us. Organized by Cleveland Independents, a consortium of locally owned and operated eateries, the March 3 to 16 event casts the net beyond the downtown area. (Come back to for details in early March). 

5 things to know about Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week, Feb. 17-26:

1. The public will have the option to get $15, $30 and $40 specials.

2. Your vote counts! This year, participating restaurants will compete in The Hungry Games - Battle of the Districts. Restaurant Week goers will vote for their favorite menus online. Click here to vote!
