Selections include everything from lobster carbonara at The Ale House to a mini-hot dog offering at Famous Lunch, said Erin Pihlaja, executive director of the Downtown Troy BID. “It’s everyday comfort food to fine dining,” she said. “People can go to the restaurant week for a  lunch break or a multi-course meal.”

Each of the restaurants is featured on the Downtown Troy BID’s Facebook page in videos taken by Downtown Troy BID Executive Director Erin Pihlaja that highlight each establishment’s story and what it has to offer.
