New Canaan Restaurant Week - August 24-30, 2012
From August 24th through August 30th, thirteen New Canaan restaurants will offer their diverse cuisines according to their own individual prix-fixe specials.
Participating restaurants have a choice of two price points for their featured two-course luncheon menus and three-course dinner menus. Prix fixe will be: Lunch $10.12 or $15.12; and dinner $20.12 or $29.12.
New Canaan stores will also enjoy the benefits of Restaurant Week. Playing off a theme of “Dine and Shop”, the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce is helping drive restaurant traffic into stores. There will be ‘surprise’ coupons randomly distributed at lunch for diners to enjoy discounts at participating merchants. Plus, printed materials distributed in the restaurants will encourage patrons to shop, after eating.
The eventful week launches with the Taste of the Town Stroll on Thursday, August 23rd from 6pm to 9pm when restaurants and merchants throughout town will provide free hors d’oeuvres and drinks to the public. A fund-raiser for the New Canaan Food Pantry, the price of entry to the Taste of the Town Stroll is a non-perishable food donation at one of the drop-off sites on Elm Street, Main Street or Forest Street. Starting August 20th, Walter Stewart’s Market is supporting the cause by offering its customers the opportunity to buy two different donations packages in its store, which Walter Stewart’s will deliver directly to the Food Pantry. The evening culminates at 9pm in front of the Palace Theatre when dozens of prizes will be given away. The grand prize is customized spa party for six at New Canaan’s Aetheria Spa.
