Designed so that Westport’s restaurants can showcase their fare at customer friendly prices, Restaurant Week (actually two weeks) opens Sunday and runs through Oct. 16.
This year 25 eateries are participating, offering fixed price meals and cocktails “to suit any foodie’s interest and pocketbook,” says Matthew Mandell, executive director of the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce.
“It’s all part of the continuing ‘Eat Local’ campaign to promote area restaurants, which began two weeks ago with the Slice of Saugatuck,” Mandell said.
“Our restaurants have embraced this event wholeheartedly, making it very robust,” he added about the participating moderate, family style to high end establishments. “People will need the two weeks.”
Instead of a single price for all places, each one has set their own prix fixe, ranging from $15 to $25 for lunch and $25 to $35 for dinner. Brunch, being ofered at some location, is $15.
“Restaurant Week is a very important event for us,” said Marc Murphy, manager of The Spotted Horse.
“Not only is it a great marketing tool to introduce new customers to our restaurant, it can be seen as a reward to those customers that enjoy dining here on a regular basis. I only see it as a ‘win-win’ for both sides of the menu.”
Restaurant Week is being sponsored by Castlekeep Advisors, WEBE 108 and WICC 600 where radio commercials and contest give-a-ways to promote the event will be ongoing, Mandell said.
