Mark your diaries; June 1-11, 2016 is Puerto Rico Restaurant Week.
The 5th Edition of this popular event will see the island’s premier restaurants offering specially designed 3 course lunch / dinners at a fixed price. These prix fixe menus are the cornerstone of the Restaurant Week concept. Enticed by affordable multiple course menus, patrons are encouraged to try new establishments and revisit old favorites.
Puerto Rico Restaurant Week menus will be set at either $28 or $38 for dinner and $20 for lunch depending on the establishment. Prices do not include drinks, tax or tip and reservations are required and must be made with the participating restaurant.
For this fifth installment, co-founders Gustavo Antonetti and Paulina Salach are encouraging chefs to place an emphasis on inventiveness and as always, to source Locally.
“Each year, we are reaching new customers, engaging with foodies, and pushing the envelope in terms of creativity. Our chefs have developed a friendly competition among themselves and the beneficiaries have been the patrons,” says Antonetti.
“We strongly believe in sustainability and encourage restaurants to create as many dishes as they can using local ingredients,” adds Salach. “Throughout the last few years we’ve seen restaurants working increasingly with local farmers. We want to foment and promote those relationships.”
