York Restaurant Week is coming back!
Now one of the most anticipated events in the city calendar, this year’s event will take place between 11-17 October.
Organised by the York BID (York Business Improvement District) York Restaurant Week was set up to encourage people to eat out during a quieter time of year.
Diners can choose from offers ranging from afternoon tea to a full three course dinner.
It’s a great opportunity for those who work in the city to try different places at lunchtime, or an affordable way for families and friends to dine out together.
Businesses confirmed to take part so far include Orchid Vegan Restaurant, Supersonic Café, and Tabanco By Ambiente.
BID business manager, Chris Bush co-ordinates the event, which has run successfully three times before.
He said: “We’re confident that restaurant week will give residents and workers a great excuse to dine out this October – and the hospitality sector will experience a well-deserved boost in trade, after what has been a tough year.
“We look forward to working with lots of fantastic food and drink business based in York city centre, including some new faces to the scene.”
Applications are open now for city centre bars, café’s, restaurants, pubs, hotels and street food vendors to get involved. Over 60 businesses participated in the October 2020 event, and the BID hope to match this success again.
Businesses can register to take part at the York Restaurant Week website.
To take advantage of the offers, diners visit the same website.
All the offers will be published online a couple of weeks before the event starts, including details of all participating venues and their offers priced at either £5, £10, £15 or £20.
There is no limit to the amount of offers diners can access, and vouchers are completely free to download.
Diners are advised to book ahead – every restaurant has a limited capacity and offers are anticipated to be popular. Booking a table is a sensible step to avoid disappointment.
