WHAT IS RESTAURANT WEEK?

OH, HOW WE’D LOVE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR BEING THE INNOVATORS OF SUCH A DELICIOUS EVENT.  BUT WE’RE JUST PART OF THE FEEDING FRENZY AND, YES, THE PUN WAS INTENDED.

RESTAURANT WEEK GOT ITS START BACK IN 1992 IN THE BIG APPLE AS A BOOST FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION. TIM ZAGAT, FOUNDER OF ZAGAT GUIDES, WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN BRINGING RESTAURANT WEEK TO THE FOREFRONT AND HIS IDEA BLOSSOMED.  NYC RESTAURATEURS WERE EXCITED TO OFFER MENU SPECIALS DURING A DESIGNATED WEEK SO THAT PEOPLE COULD AFFORD TO ENJOY AN “OFF-THE-EATEN-PATH” EXPERIENCE BY TRYING NEW AND EXCITING DINING DESTINATIONS AS THEY ATTENDED THE DNC.

FOR US, DINE OUT LONG BEACH, RESTAURANT & COCKTAIL WEEK IS A DELICIOUS EVENT SHOWCASING THE CITY’S BEST AND MOST DELICIOUS RESTAURANTS. MENUS WILL BEGIN POSTING TO OUR WEBSITE STARTING FEBRUARY 1 – SO CHECK BACK OFTEN AS WE ADD NEW RESTAURANTS AND NEW SPONSORS.
