If you missed out on the delectable benefits of participating in Western New York’s Local Restaurant Week last March, the epicurean event is returning in time for Fall! (Local Restaurant Week, September 21st-28th, 2009, Downtown Buffalo & Surrounding Suburbs).
Restaurants will once again devise $20.09 fixed-price menus (excluding tax & gratuity) that will showcase their chefs’ culinary skills and satiate patrons.
According to Vincent McConeghy, Community Manager @ LocalFoodService.com, “the month of September can be notoriously slow for the restaurant industry. Holding Restaurant Week during fall harvest will hopefully inspire the community to support local agriculturists & independent operators at a time when business is greatly appreciated.”
Indeed, last March’s Restaurant Week proved to be extremely successful. An even grandeur list of restaurants will partake in the week-long affair and there will be a regional feel, thanks to wineries & breweries that have agreed to join in on the festivities.
Be sure to check out WNY Restaurant Week’s Website for updates as new venues & menus will be posted daily (WNY Restaurant Week, September 21-28, 2009, http://westernnewyork.localrestaurantweek.com/home.cfm).
