Three Fort Worth restaurants will offer $39 three-course dinners most of September, leading the list of 19 restaurants serving specials as part of the 24th annual DFW Restaurant Week summer dining promotion.

The restaurants will offer $19-$49 lunches and dinners beginning Aug. 31, with $2-$5 going to the Lena Pope children’s agency, the charity beneficiary for the 23rd year.

A takeout or dine-in dinner costs $39 Aug. 31-Sept. 27 at Gemelle, Rise Nº3 Salon de Soufflé and Texas de Brazil, with $4 going to Lena Pope.

Rise Nº3 also will offer a $19 lunch special, with $2 going to Lena Pope.

Reservations opened Tuesday at those and 16 more restaurants across Tarrant County offering $39 or $49 dinners or $19 lunches for part of September.

This year, the event also rallies support both for local restaurants hurt by the pandemic recession.

“It is more important now than ever before to dine-in or get take-out from the 19 Tarrant County restaurants participating. ... We are so thankful they’ve chosen to participate and give back during this cataclysmic time,” Lena Pope executive Ashley Elgin said in a written statement.

Each restaurant offers a special menu.

For example, the heralded Grace restaurant, 777 Main St., in downtown Fort Worth, will offer a $49 dinner Aug. 31-Sept. 27 featuring a choice of beef short rib or its popular scallops, along with an appetizer or salad and butterscotch pudding or cheesecake.

That dinner is available for takeout or dine-in, including safe service on Grace’s patio.

Other restaurants will publish Restaurant Week deals soon.

The list, with reservations available by phone or through websites:

Aug. 31-Sept. 13: Ferrari’s Italian Villa (Grapevine, $39), Mac’s on Main (Grapevine, $39), Next Bistro (Colleyville, $49), Restaurant506 at Sanford House (Arlington, $49).

For 23 of its 24 years, the Lena Pope agency has benefited from the August dinner deals in Tarrant County.

Restaurants in Dallas County also are offering specials to support that city’s food bank.

Some restaurants will offer a “preview” weekend Aug. 28-30.

The event is presented by Cadillac dealers and promoted by KRLD/1080 AM and local Radio.com stations affiliated with Philadelphia-based Entercom. The Star-Telegram is among other sponsors.
