Downtown Summit's Restaurant Week Set for Feb. 15-24

February 14, 2013 at 7:01 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Looking to treat yourself with a few dinners out of the house this weekend? Summit Downtown will be having its fifth annual “Restaurant Week” Feb. 15-24.

“It gives people an opportunity something new they wouldn’t normally try, or go back to an old favorite,” said Susan Petrow, Downtown Summit’s Marketing Administrative Assistant. “It’s just a fun experience.”

Each participating restaurant will have a prix fixe menu or a special drink offer for customers. Dessert places, like Red Mango and Sweet Nothings, are also offering special deals for customers over the ten-day period. More than 30 restaurants are participating in this year’s Restaurant Week and most of their menus can be found online. Some restaurants are even setting a price of $20.13 for their offers in honor of the calendar year.

Downtown Summit’s restaurant pool will have everything from Japanese to Italian to ice cream. Breakfast, lunches, dinners and desserts are all being included in the Downtown event’s special offers. Local businesses are participating as well, offering discounts for people who patronize the local restaurants. Even Starbucks will have a special coffee blend to offer participants of this year’s Restaurant Week.

“That’s one of the great thing about Summit - you can choose anything you’d want to eat,” said Petrow.

Patrons of Restaurant Week also have a chance to win additional opportunities to dine and shop in Summit’s downtown area. “Dine for Dollars” allows patrons to enter a raffle after dining at three participating restaurants, patrons may fill out a save the date card provided at their third restaurant, attach their dated receipts and place them in the baskets available at all the participating locations. A drawing will be held March 4 for prizes.

Prizes include gift certificates to shop and eat in Summit. They range from $50 for third prize, to $100 for second and $200 for first.
