LEOMINSTER — As winter wears on, participating eateries around the city are serving up discounted meals as part of the annual Restaurant Week, which kicked off on Sunday.
“Whether you have the day off, have to work, have the house to yourself, or have the kids home from school, treat yourself to not having to cook!” Leominster Community Development wrote on the event’s Facebook page.
The tradition, hosted by Leominster’s Community Development Department, began in 2013. As is often the case with city events, its focus is celebrating local businesses and connecting them with area residents.
Some 15 restaurants and 17 locations are participating this year, according to the city’s event page. Those restaurants include a wide variety of cuisines offering an array of discounted options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
From Aroma Joe’s Coffee to Cristina’s Restaurant, there are options for virtually every palette.
For Restaurant Week, establishments pick certain meals and agree to offer them at specific price points. For example, this year, 435 Bar & Grille will offer a $20 dinner, and Comeketo Brazillian Cuisine will be offering a $10 lunch deal and a $20 dinner deal.
What each meal will entail is up to the restaurant. Many eateries have posted the options to their Facebook pages.
Aroma Joe’s, for example, is offering a breakfast sandwich and 16-ounce coffee special for $5. Uno Pizzaria is offering a $5 pretzel appetizer, a $10 pasta entree of customer choosing and a $5 “Ooey Gooey Dough Bites” dessert, according to its Facebook page.
Among the list are at least two newcomers to the city’s restaurant scene, including Brazucao Lanches and Popcorn Castle.
Other participating restaurants are Changes Pizza, The Daily Bagel Cafe, Garibaldi Mexican Restaurant, McDonald’s (all three locations), Pizza King, Shake N Dog, Taqueria el Amigo and Tang Dynasty. For more information about participating venues and the various price points offered, visit the event’s Facebook page.
“Don’t despair if your go-to restaurant isn’t participating this year,” event organizers wrote on Facebook. “Tell them to join in the fun next year. In the meantime, give one of this year’s participating restaurants a try.”
Restaurant Week runs through Saturday.
