DINE LBC – LONG BEACH RESTAURANT WEEK RETURNSAUGUST 5-13
WITH MORE THAN 60 RESTAURANTS EXPECTED TO PARTICIPATE
Participating Restaurants To Offer Special Pricing & Multiple Courses During Nine Day Event
Long Beach residents and visitors alike are in for a treat as more than 60 local area restaurants will offer special multi-course menus at affordable prices when Dine LBC – Long Beach Restaurant Week returns August 5 – 13, 2017.
Just as many regions around the country hold city-wide restaurant week events, the participating restaurants will be offering multi-course, “value-oriented” meals set at one of six price points: $15, $25, $35, $45, $55 or $65 per guest.
Founder and organizer Terri Henry, who brought restaurant week to Long Beach in 2014, said that besides attracting local “foodies”, Dine LBC allows those who view dining out as a luxury to also enjoy an exceptional experience. The nine day event that includes two full weekends gives locals the opportunity to visit multiple participating restaurants and also allows those in neighboring cities who find it difficult to travel to Long Beach during the week more options.
“With recent minimum wage increases, overhead and cost of goods increases, an annual restaurant week drives much needed traffic into our valued restaurants”, said Henry, who said the event will span across twelve Long Beach neighborhoods and has a comprehensive marketing, advertising and PR campaign valued at over $500K to support the nine day event.
“Long Beach Restaurant Week has been a success for my restaurant and has been a great way to promote our growing culinary community,” said Steve Massis, proprietor of The Attic in Belmont Heights. “We’ve participated every year since 2014 and its resulted in an increase in both sales and guest count during the week of the event, with many being new faces that we continue to see.”
Added Dan Tapia, co-owner of the newly opened 4th & Olive in downtown’s East Village neighborhood, “As a newer restaurant, we’re confident that our participation in Dine LBC will give us that much more exposure as a unique dining destination. All of us at 4th & Olive are excited to take part in the 2017 event.”
