(Jan. 16, 2020) Thirteen businesses are offering discounted and special meal prices for the fourth annual Berlin Restaurant Week until Sunday.
The 13 businesses are Crush N Crabs, DiFebo’s Restaurant, Fins Ale House and Raw Bar, the Atlantic Hotel, Baked Desserts Café, Burley Inn Tavern, Burley Café, Main Street Deli, Rayne’s Reef Soda and Fountain Grill, The Blacksmith, Gilbert’s Provisions, Burn Wood Fired Pizza and On What Grounds.
Cam Bunting, Berlin Restaurant Week founder and owner of Bunting Realty, came up with the idea after experiencing a similar promotion e in Bethesda, where she was visiting her daughter.
“I like to see the variety,” Bunting said. “I think this is the time to try something new. I’d like the [restaurants] to try something different … maybe there might be a new item that was popular during restaurant week that they would like to add.”
Diners can compete for a chance to win restaurant gift cards and $100 donated by Bunting by dining at three different participating restaurants by using Berlin Restaurant Week passports and getting them stamped at all three locations.
“I don’t have a restaurant, but if I had one, I would participate,” Bunting said. “It’s something different during the slow time of the year and it gets people to come out and enjoy some good, hot food. Come the 13th to the 19th and enjoy restaurant week.”
Guests and diners can pick up Berlin Restaurant Week passports at either the Berlin Welcome Center on 14 S. Main Street or Bunting Realty on 24 Broad Street or at any of the participating restaurant locations. The drawing will take place on Monday, Jan. 20.
The menus from participating businesses will be posted online, on social media as well as on the welcome center’s front window at the office on South Main Street.
