By November 2, 2017 No Comments

CORNWALL, Ontario – The return of some popular food-based fun is on tap in Cornwall.

Seaway Food Festival is excited to announce the return of the very successful Cornwall Restaurant Week set to take place Nov. 7 to 11. This initiative is founded on the core principle of engaging consumers through a common shared experience of amazing local cuisine. Cornwall Restaurant Week is an annual promotion that celebrates our city’s finest eateries at an affordable price. Participating restaurants offer two or three-course prix-fixe menus specifically priced for this week at $28 or $34. Each restaurant will have a unique opportunity to showcase their specialties to new customers.

New this year will be a $10 “lunch box” special at selected local eateries. Furthermore, Seaway Food Festival is proud to announce a new partnership with the Agape Centre. Proceeds from every meal and every lunch box will go directly towards their Holiday drive.

Sebastien Manigat, Director of the Seaway Food Festival, said: “2017 has been a breakout year for our local food scene. From the massive successes of La Poutine Week and Le Burger Week to the amazing development of the Summer Beer Fest food experience, we’ve seen tremendous growth in the level of engagement between consumers and our restaurants. It’s been exciting to see the renewed enthusiasm of our chefs and in turn the warm reception from customers. It’s without a doubt in my mind that our largest and most successful event (Cornwall Restaurant Week) will build on that momentum and deliver a foodie experience unlike Cornwall has ever seen.”

Downtown restaurants taking part in the lunchtime component of Restaurant week include Mindful Cookery and The Downtown Farm.

Downtown participants for the dinner component include ESCA Gourmet Pizza + Bar, Table 21, Moustache Joe’s and Truffle’s Burger Bar.
