Harford County's third annual Restaurant Week will be June 4 to 16, when restaurants throughout Harford County will be offering price fixed menus consisting of three-course meals for $20.12 (or less), plus beverages, tax and gratuity.
Limited service restaurants or restaurants with a lower price point will be offering other special values. Contest cards will be given out by the participating restaurants to their qualifying patrons for the Restaurant Week contest. The more people dine during Restaurant Week the more chances they have to win as the week concludes with a grand prize drawing of Harford County restaurant gift cards valued at $1,000.
County Tourism Manager Wini Roche said all the participating restaurants saw an increase in customers during restaurant week last year.
"By joining together in this promotion, Harford County's participating restaurants saw an increase in business by 10 to 15 percent for the week, and this was a great way for people to get out and try something new," Roche said in a press release.
Because of its popularity in 2011, restaurants asked to extend Restaurant Week for a second week this year.
The Office of Tourism coordinates Restaurant Week in partnership with local restaurants and promotes the week through radio, print, social media and on-line advertising.
