Kent, OH - On Sunday, April 23, Main Street Kent will host the third annual “Seven Courses of Kent” dinner party in downtown Kent.  This special event will take place at Laziza beginning at 5 p.m., where guests will enjoy a delectable seven-course meal comprised of dishes from seven Kent eateries. 

Each course will be paired with a beer or wine selection hand-picked by a representative of Heidelberg Distributing Company.  Tickets are $70 per person and include a seven-course dinner complete with wine and beer pairings, tax and gratuity.  Only seventy tickets will be available for this event, which is generously sponsored by Instantwhip Foods and Heidelberg Distributing Company. Restaurant owners will donate all food; ticket proceeds will benefit Main Street Kent. Tickets will be available for purchase on the beginning Monday, March 27th:

Guests will enjoy a variety of salad, sushi, soup, entrée and dessert courses from these seven Kent establishments: Bricco (, Erie Street Kitchen (, Franklin Hotel Bar (, Grazers (, Kenko (, Ray’s Place (, and Treno Ristorante.
