Eat in the New Year | Way of life
Elk Grove Restaurant Week, an annual showcase of the city’s vibrant and diverse food scene, kicks off Friday, January 14 and runs through Sunday, January 23.
During these 10 days, diners can use a free “passport” on their smartphone to access offers from more than 30 restaurants. These specials include discounts, family meals and chances to win prizes. Customers simply need to access their mobile passport by registering on ElkGroveRestaurantWeek.com then access a link to a restaurant week pass. They must then show that pass on a smartphone screen to an employee of a participating restaurant in order to win the Elk Grove Restaurant Week special.
Explore Elk Grove, an organization that works with the Town of Elk Grove to promote local businesses, created this year’s Restaurant Week.
“It’s very easy, it’s transparent and it allows you to check into restaurants for individual offerings,” said Aaryn Val, executive director of Explore Elk Grove.
Like restaurants across California, Elk Grove’s restaurant scene experienced staff and service shortages last year when the state’s economy reopened after a 15-month shutdown related to the COVID-19 situation.
“We think there’s no better time than now in January to get them business,” Val said.
She then mentioned the wide variety of restaurants that are part of the 10 day showcase.
“I love trying new things and doing business in the community I live in and love,” said Val.
Explore Elk Grove is always recruiting local restaurants to participate in this year’s Elk Grove Restaurant Week. Restaurant owners can email [email protected] to join. For more information on participating restaurants and the smartphone passport, visit www.ElkGroveRestaurantWeek.com.
