Restaurant Week is back.

This week, diners in the Twin Cities area will get the chance to eat at some of the trendiest restaurants for less than it would normally cost as part of Mpls.St.Paul Magazine's annual Restaurant Week, the magazine says.

Fifty-five restaurants – including six new eateries – across the Twin Cities and nearby suburbs are taking part, Open Table says. (Click here to see the available menu at participating restaurants and to make a reservation.)

Establishments will be serving two-course lunches for $10-$20, or three-course dinners for $15-$30 throughout the week. (Tax, beverages and tips aren't included in the price, however.)

Restaurant Week started in 2007 as a way to connect food enthusiasts with some of the best dining in the Twin Cities, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine says.

The magazine is also asking participants to email them a photo of their experience during restaurant week for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to a participating Restaurant Week eatery and be featured as the "Diner of the Day". (Photos can also be posted to social media using #MNRestaurantWeek for a chance to win.)

Restaurant Week runs from Oct. 18-23.

Eat Downtown Duluth coming in November

If you can't make it to the Twin Cities this week, Duluth will be hosting Eat Downtown Restaurant Week from Nov. 8-15.

Some of the city's favorite restaurants put together a multi-course meal for lunch and dinner so people can sample some menu items form several places.

It's $10 for lunch or $25 for dinner. Click here for more details and a look at the menus.
