York Restaurant Week – Coming in April 2019!

York Restaurant Week – Coming in April 2019!

York Restaurant Week – Ooh I am rather excited about this!  This year York will see it’s own Restaurant Week.  I am not sure what form it will take at the moment, but I remember reading all about Leeds Restaurant Week last year and thinking that York should have one too.  There will be special events and special discounted menus I imagine.  I shall keep you updated!  At the moment, this is all I know….

York Restaurant Week Dates

York Business Improvement District has revealed the planned date for York’s first Restaurant Week. From 1 – 7 April 2019, a host of city centre restaurants are expected to offer diners a host of special fixed price menus to entice them through the doors.

“We had a good response to our initial survey asking what restaurateurs and managers would want from York Restaurant Week, and we’ve now opened applications for any city-centre venue wishing to take part,” comments Chris Bush, business support executive for York BID, who is co-ordinating the initiative.

The BID team is hoping that York Restaurant Week will encourage people living in York and surrounding villages to try something new from York’s thriving restaurant scene. “We all have our favourite restaurants, and often people return to the same ones time and time again, missing out on the other exciting dining options available within walking distance. The participating restaurants are keen to showcase their food and ambience, with some great offers to tempt first time visitors in, and encourage them to return with friends and family.”

The first York Restaurant Week will exclusively feature city centre restaurants, though there is a possibility of extending the scheme in the future. “Our role is to support businesses in the city centre paying the BID levy, and with such a wide range of food outlets – from fast-food and street food to fine dining – within the BID area, we’re confident that participants will be able to cater for just about any taste or dietary preference,” adds Chris. “We have already been approached by a few businesses outside the area who are interested, so if we can make 2019 a success, we may be able to extend it in the future.”
