Due to strong demand and disruption caused by weather, Downtown Westfield Restaurant Week will be extended through Thursday, March 4th. The snowy, wet weather should not be the reason for diners to miss out on this wonderful, culinary bargain.

Originally scheduled for one week, Sunday, February 21 through Saturday, February 27th, you will now be able to dine in Downtown Westfield through Thursday March 4th for the mere price of $20 for a two course dinner, and $10 for a two course lunch. (Beverages, dessert, tax and gratuities are not included. Check www.WestfieldToday.com for a complete listing of all participating restaurants and some exclusions.)

In addition, the DWC is offering a random drawing for a $20 Gift Certificate for each participating restaurant, as well as a bonus $10 Westfield Parking Card. Imagine, two drawings per restaurant, and YOU may be one of the lucky winners! Drawings will take place at the end of Restaurant Week. ALL diners who complete a Restaurant Week form are eligible to win. You must provide your email address to be eligible for the bonus drawing for the Parking Card. Just fill out your entry form during or after your meal at any participating restaurant.

"We all need a special reason to celebrate the New Year, 2010," said Sherry Cronin Executive Director of Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC). "Some of our favorite best and trendiest restaurants are doing all they can to welcome us for an affordable lunch or dinner, and inclement weather should not deter diners. During the extended Restaurant Week, you may enjoy a selection of great meals for longer all around Downtown Westfield for either $10 for lunch or $20 for dinner."

Adding to the pleasure of the event, CoolVines will be offering wine pairings for each BYO Restaurant. In addition, they will be offering a 10% discount to anyone who mentions Westfield Restaurant Week.
