There is no shortage of delicious food in West Hartford, and from August 20 - September 2, restaurant patrons can not only enjoy a delicious meal at value pricing at participating eateries but will also support an important cause. A percentage of sales from West Hartford Restaurant Week will be donated to Foodshare, the regional food bank serving Hartford and Tolland counties.
Participating restaurants will offer lunch & dinner prix-fixe menus starting at $12 for lunch and for dinner $20, $30 or $40 price points which will showcase their unique offerings. Restaurants may feature a special menu for the week or offer their discounts on existing menu items.
“Foodshare is honored to once again be the beneficiary of West Hartford Restaurant Week. We hope that everyone will come out to support West Hartford’s restaurants and in turn, our neighbors who worry about having enough food for their families. Last year, Foodshare provided nearly 11 million meals to our network of nearly 300 food pantries, meal programs, and Mobile Foodshare sites, including those here in West Hartford. The proceeds from the inaugural West Hartford Restaurant Week provided thousands of meals to our neighbors in need here in Greater Hartford,” said Jason Jakubowski, President and CEO of Foodshare, and a West Hartford resident.
The “Dine for Good” event is a collaboration between The West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, Foodshare and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and supported by the West Hartford Center Business Association, Park Road Association, Elmwood Business Association, Bishops Corner Neighborhood Association and the Home Design District. “The West Hartford Chamber of Commerce is excited to participate in Restaurant Week. As our tagline states, we are Your Community & Business Connection. This joint effort among the Chamber, our restaurants and Foodshare perfectly embodies this mission,” said Christopher Conway, Executive Director of the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce.
