Mid-Ohio Valley Restaurant Week is now in its third year and welcomes restaurants all across the spectrum: from crepes and BBQ ribs to seafood and steak. This year, there are eight restaurants participating in this culinary event for the first time!

Bogey’s BBQ & Grill, Fairplain Yacht Club, Riverfront Bar & Grill at the Lafayette Hotel, Shortys Pizzeria, Sorella Ristorante, The Hideout, Town House, and Unity Cafe are first-time participants in MOV Restaurant Week, each featuring something special to diners this year.

At Bogey’s BBQ & Grill in Ravenswood, WV you’ll find hearty treats like Fried Green Tomatoes, BBQ Ribs, and Fried Cheesecake.

Two restaurants located in Ripley, WV are joining in the fun this year. Fairplain Yacht Club is serving up Smoked Barbacoa Beef Nachos, Smoked Pork Chops, and Ragin’ Brownies while Sorella Ristorante is offering Fried Ravioli Bruschetta, Eggplant Parmesean Stacks, and a Chocolate Mouse & Espresso Cake Trifle.

Shortys Pizzera is another newcomer to MOVRW and boy are they going all in! For the main course, good luck choosing between the Cucina and Manzo Primo pizzas, both of which are high on our list. Finish your meal off with Two Chocolate Chip Cookies Infused with Chocolate Pudding.

The Riverfront Bar & Grill in the Lafayette Hotel has everything from Crab Rangoons and Bacon Wrapped Olives to Chicken Chipotle Pasta and New York Style Cheesecake on their menu.

Fill up at the Town House with either a New York Strip Steak Dinner or Chicken Noodles over Red Skin Mashed Potatoes and Gravy. (Rumor has it their Oreo Cheesecake will leave you craving more.)

The Hideout over in Parkersburg is also slingin’ pizzas, with your choice of a tempting Taco Pizza or Bangin’ Buffalo Chicken Pizza. Not to mention appetizer choices of Hot Wings or Pepperoni Rolls!

Last but certainly not least. Unity Cafe is excited to participate in their first MOV Restaurant Week and are the only participating restaurant offering two vegetarian entrees! Start off with a salad and a tea or coffee, and then choose from the Roasted Lentil and Red Pepper Crepe or the Lyon Crepe, before digging into one of their tasty dessert crepes.
