6th annual Greater Valley Restaurant Week begins Oct. 3

The Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that the sixth annual Greater Valley Restaurant Week will be held from Monday, Oct. 3 through Saturday, Oct. 8.

“This annual event is testament to the breadth and diversity of the Valley restaurant scene,” said Greater Valley Chamber President Bill Purcell. “The Chamber urges all residents and businesses alike to take advantage of the special menus and pricing offered during Greater Valley Restaurant Week and to patronize our Valley restaurants throughout the year.”

Greater Valley Restaurant Week is designed for people to sample menus at lower fixed prices and visit as many restaurants as their schedule and appetite allows. Area restaurants have the opportunity to introduce the community and visitors to what they do best at a price that encourages dining out.

The 17 restaurants currently participating include 121 Restaurant & Bar – Oxford; Archie Moore’s – Derby; Caloroso – Shelton; Center Street Social – Shelton; Copper City – Ansonia; Focaccia’s – Shelton; GROW – Shelton; House of Bones – Derby; Il Palio Ristorante – Shelton; La Scogliera – Shelton; Pies & Pints – Oxford; Red Lotus – Shelton; Stone’s Throw – Seymour; Tea with Tracy – Seymour; Vazzy’s Cucina – Shelton; Wellington’s – Shelton; and Zois - Seymour.

Restaurant Week provides the opportunity for area residents to check out the many different restaurants -- the hidden gems -- here in the Valley. It is a great opportunity for employers to reward their employees and for area business people to coordinate lunch meetings. Restaurant Week also showcases the cultural and culinary value of our community.
