Last week I posted about the Savor Local Restaurants campaign currently going on in Rochester. On Friday, my husband and I tried a new restaurant, Six50 Black Oven Cooking, that was relatively close to us and which we didn’t even know existed.
Today, restaurants in the Buffalo and western NY area start their Local Restaurant Week, with many featuring specials for $20.13. In some cases, the $20 deal is a meal for two people, so don’t think this event is too expensive for your wallet.
This week I have plans to have dinner with some previous co-workers at a restaurant I’ve never been to before. I love the excuse to try someplace new, which is part of what Local Restaurant Week (LWR) is all about.
The LWR website features the list of participating restaurants which you can filter by location. It also displays the type of cuisine that each restaurant specializes in. Local restaurant week continues through Sunday, April 28.
