Restaurant Week offers Flint's hidden gems chance to shine
FLINT, Mich. - Tuesday kicks off Flint's second Restaurant Week where people can visit the Vehicle City and try some of the best places to eat.
The historic Torch Bar is one of 19 restaurants celebrating Restaurant Week.
Over the next few days, people will have a chance to stop by here and other hidden restaurant gems that make Flint a destination for dinner.
Torch Bar manager Benjamin Steby says this burger hub is ready to put their own spin on Restaurant Week.
"What we decided to do this year is try to do a couple of less conventional burgers ones that are kinda topped with things that are more out of the ordinary," said Steby.
The Torch may be hidden underneath the sparkling lights of Buckham Alley but the 60-year-old restaurant hopes this week turn first time visitors into regulars.
"it's a good way to bring us all together as a community," Steby added.
This and other Flint restaurants will offer special menus, drink specials and a taste of the city's culture.
Another classic Flint restaurant participating this week is Luigi's.
This east side stop hopes to highlight their famous pizza and friendly atmosphere.
"I'm really excited to get new people in. We've been here for 60 years, grandparents have brought their grandkids in, those grandkids had kids, who brought their kids in so it's really exciting to get new people in," said Siera Elizade of Luigi’s.
Both places hope people will visit all the restaurants on the list to get a taste of all the flavors Flint has to offer.
"It's really positive for the area and we're all about positivity," Elizade said.
