New Rochelle Downtown to Celebrate Spring Restaurant Weeks in April
Dining-week events that range over vast regions are fine, but in April, food lovers will be able to experience a world of affordable dining packed into one walkable downtown with New Rochelle’s own spring restaurant weeks.
The New Rochelle Dine Downtown Restaurant Week will run Monday through Thursday evenings, April 4-7 and 11-14. During that time, 14 participating restaurants will offer special three-course menus for $27.50 (not including beverage, tax and gratuity.)
“Downtown New Rochelle restaurants offer a wide range of cuisines – Indian, Peruvian, Italian and many more,” said Ralph DiBart, executive director of the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District (BID.) “During Restaurant Week, there will be so many delicious meals to try that diners will have some tough choices to make. But whatever they choose, we’re sure they’re going to love dining in a downtown that has something for everyone from foodies to families enjoying a reasonably priced night out.”
Dine Downtown New Rochelle Restaurant Week is sponsored by participating restaurants and the New Rochelle BID.
