Founded in 2004 by the late Stephanie Scott, Restaurant Week is back after a two-year hiatus. This highly anticipated event that celebrates and encourages people to dine out and support the local restaurant industry this year boasts over 60 restaurants offering heavily discounted prix-fixe menus.

Though dubbed a week — the 10-day event, which began on November 11, 2022, offers these menus over the categories Morning Bites, Nyam and Scram, Savoury, Delectable and Epicurean.

In tandem with Senior Associate Editor, Lifestyle & Social Content Novia McDonald-Whyte alongside chairperson of Restaurant Week Debra Taylor Smith, the Thursday Food lens was out during days one and two checking on not only the menu offerings but also the positive feedback from patrons.
