Triad Restaurant Week
SECOND TRIAD RESTAURANT WEEK PLANNED FOR MID-NOVEMBER.
Get your forks ready! From Nov. 13-22, some of the Triad’s premier restaurants will participate in the second Triad Restaurant Week to offer special three-course dinners as a way to encourage dining out. The restaurants will offer complete meals at either $20 or $30, depending on the menu selection.
The purpose of Restaurant Week is to offer diners the opportunity to try out a new restaurant or visit an old favorite at an affordable, reasonable price, while simultaneously supporting the region’s local restaurants.
Triad Restaurant Week will unveil its list of participating local restaurants at www.TriadRestaurantWeek.com on Nov. 13.
During Restaurant Week, which originated in New York City and has since spread nationwide, restaurants offer a fixed price (“prix fixe”) menu that includes three courses: an appe tizer, an entrÃ©e and dessert. (Tax and gratuity are not included.) BothCharlotte and the Triangle areas have had similar events for some time, and the first Triad Restaurant Week was held last spring.
Capture Public Relations & Marketing, based in Winston-Salem, owns and manages Triad Restaurant Week.
“Particularly with the downturn in the economy during the past few months, it’s a crucial time to support local businesses, and this is one very enjoyable way to do so,” said Steve Bumgarner of Capture. “Who doesn’t love dining out at a local restaurant and enjoying a great meal? And when the meal is a bargain, it makes the taste even better.”
The Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau, High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau and Visit Winston- Salem are collaboratively promoting Triad Restaurant Week. Many of the Triad’s leading media outlets — including Skirt! magazine, 93.1 the Wolf, YES! Weekly, Winston-Salem Magazine, the Winston-Salem Journal, 97.1 WQMG, Triad Smarty Pants and 98.7 Simon — also are providing marketing support.
