The Detroit Restaurant Week launched in 2009 as a partnership project between Paxahau Event Productions, the Downtown Detroit Partnership and partner organizations in Midtown, Corktown, Eastern Market and New Center to support and promote fine dining restaurants in the city. Each year, the event has grown to include more restaurants. This year's edition of El Barzón adds for the first time a Mexican establishment that's a bit further removed from the city center. Organizers Paxahau say that more than 380,000 diners have enjoyed DRW to date, generating more than $7 million in sales for participating restaurants.
