The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce announced that Saratoga County Restaurant Week: Save Our Locals Edition will run from Thursday, Feb. 17, to Thursday, Feb. 24 at various restaurants in the area.
“We saw an outpouring of community support with Save Our Locals $20.21, and we wanted to take the opportunity to continue the momentum by reminding our residents that saving our locals doesn’t end now that it’s 2022,” said Todd Shimkus, Chamber president.
Similar to years past, participating restaurants will offer special menus for the week, which patrons will have a chance to enjoy with both takeout and dine-in options. In Save Our Locals fashion, patrons can submit their receipts from participating restaurants throughout the week for a chance to win one of a variety of gift cards.
“Driscoll Foods is thrilled to sponsor Saratoga County’s Restaurant Week: Save Our Locals Edition,” said Steven Donnelly, division vice president, Driscoll Foods. “Our locally owned restaurants are an integral part of Saratoga’s thriving community, and we wish to do all we can to support them in what are still difficult times for the industry. I look forward to seeing the menus these talented chefs come up with and enjoying a great meal with family and friends.”
“Saratoga Eagle is a family-run business whose headquarters started right here in Saratoga Springs,” said John Rogan, general manager, Saratoga Eagle. “Saratoga County was built on small, family-owned, local businesses, and we want to make sure that tradition continues! It’s exciting to have the opportunity to be part of this event, and, as a sponsor, Saratoga Eagle is proud to contribute with Kona Brewing so we can spread liquid aloha and warm thoughts to everyone!”
The Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce has been spearheading the annual event for the last five years. Most recently, during the height of COVID-19, the Chamber reimagined Restaurant Week as Takeout Month, transforming the traditional event into a month-long opportunity for residents to support local restaurants across the county while also remaining socially distant and staying safe with take-out options.
“When we dine and take out locally, we’re directly supporting our neighbors and fellow community members who own restaurants here in Saratoga County,” said Shimkus. “We have a great line-up of restaurants this year with options for all different types of culinary cravings. We hope to see you out enjoying a meal during Restaurant Week!”
Menus can be found on the Chamber’s website with additional details about the participating restaurants and how to enter for a chance to win.
