Downtown Akron is the gathering place for the Greater Akron area; a place in which the diversity of the community is celebrated. Locally-owned Downtown restaurants are important members of this diverse community and essential to the local economy.

Downtown Akron Restaurant Week has been developed by the DAP Emerging Leaders to encourage residents of the Akron area to explore the burgeoning dining scene in Downtown Akron. This six-day event provides reasonably priced prix fixe dinner menus at a variety of restaurants, making it easy and enjoyable to try something new. Reservations are encouraged.

DAP Emerging Leaders was established in 2010 to assist in the efforts of retaining young professionals and enhancing DAP’s mission of building and promoting a vibrant, valuable Downtown. The Emerging Leaders includes members 35 years of age and younger from a variety of businesses and organizations. The Emerging Leaders aim to increase the number of people investing socially and economically in Downtown, making Downtown a more appealing place to live, work and play all year round. The Emerging Leaders currently have three projects in the works for 2014: MyAkron, AQ Project and Downtown Akron Restaurant Week.
