PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — After cooking for your family over the holidays, now it’s time to let some of Pittsburgh’s amazing chefs cook for you.

Today kicks off Pittsburgh’s 2022 Winter Restaurant Week.

This is the perfect opportunity to try something new and let someone else do the cooking for a change, with nearly 40 restaurants participating.

Restaurants will be offering various menu items, local craft beers, and wine. The week starts today and will run through Sunday, but some will be participating through Jan. 23.

Pittsburgh Restaurant Week began in January 2012, as a twice-annual event in January and August.

Usually close to 100 restaurants participate, but due to pandemic-related challenges like staffing, there are fewer this year.

The meals are made for people to dine-in, but some places can choose to offer deals for take-out.

This week is a huge deal for a lot of restaurants, as it boosts their business during a time where it can be slow.

Many of the restaurants are offering a great deal, with some serving a three-course meal for a great price.
