APRIL 12TH – 18TH
Lancaster City Restaurant Week
This year restaurant week is more important than ever. Independently owned and operated restaurants were some of the hardest hit businesses to suffer as a result of the pandemic, and while things are slowly opening back up, many are still at risk of closing. They need your support! Restaurant week provides a great opportunity for you to do just that, while also getting the chance to sample some of the amazing local spots we have here in red rose city!
Things will look a little different this time, but you will still have plenty of options to show some love to some Lancaster city staples. You can help in any of these ways: making a reservation for socially distant indoor dining or outdoor seating, ordering take-out meals, and buying gift cards, or branded merchandise for sale.
This Restaurant Week season is about helping our culinary community to survive and thrive. Not only will you be giving back to your community but you will also get the chance to eat some delicious food. It’s a win win situation!
35 restaurants will be offering exclusive deals you won’t want to miss. From breakfast, lunch and dinner to brunch, drinks and desserts there is something for everyone all day everyday! Plus while traveling may not really be an option at the moment we are very lucky here in Lancaster to have a wide array of cuisine that spans cultures and delivers on authentic flavors from around the world. This year will feature African, Asian, British, French, Greek, Indian, Irish, Latin, Mexican, Nepalese, Peruvian, and Vietnamese fare. Have dietary restrictions? Never fear there are vegan and gluten free options available as well.
Restaurant week is also a great time to try out new restaurants without breaking the bank. Restaurants like The Imperial, The Belvedere and Bistro Barberet are offering 3-Course Meals for $40 or less! You can even get dinner for TWO at Yorgos, Annie Baileys, and Alley Kat for $30 or less!
