Fairfield Restaurant Week to Return October 24 - November 6!
First Selectwoman Brenda L. Kupchick is pleased to announce that the popular Fairfield Restaurant Week will make its return on Monday, October 24th and run through Sunday, November 6th. Bankwell will again serve as lead sponsor of Fairfield Restaurant Week, now in its eleventh year.
More than two dozen restaurants are expected to participate in this year’s event with special prix fixe lunch and dinner menus showcasing their finest culinary offerings.
First Selectwoman Kupchick said, “Fairfield is pleased to host this town-wide event, which has quickly become an annual tradition, celebrating Fairfield’s wide variety of quality restaurants. Restaurant Week gives the public the opportunity to continue visiting favorite places or frequent ones they may not yet know about. This event is another way the Town can show its support for our local businesses, help our local economy and provide people with an enjoyable dining out experience.”
We hope that residents and visitors alike will be able to enjoy and support the many restaurants that Fairfield has to offer,” stated Mark Barnhart, Fairfield’s Director of Community & Economic Development. This year’s event will again run two full weeks, giving patrons more time to visit their favorite eating establishments.
Bankwell Senior Vice President Robert Palermo said, “We are excited to again take part in this wonderful community event, and like everyone else, I look forward to sampling the best that Fairfield restaurants have to offer.”
Fairfield University is also a proud sponsor of this year’s event. Jennifer Anderson, Vice President, Marketing at the University said, “The food scene in Fairfield is so important to the daily life of our students, faculty, and staff – whether ordering take-out or dining tableside – the town’s fantastic selection of cuisine deserves to be celebrated. Our University community looks forward to what Fairfield Restaurant Week has to offer every year. The Economic Development team in Fairfield organizes a great event and we appreciate the happy patrons who shop at our downtown bookstore before and after their lovely meals.”
First Selectwoman Kupchick added, “We are very appreciative of Bankwell’s continued support of Fairfield Restaurant Week and I’d also like to thank Fairfield University for their sponsorship of this year’s event.”
