“Restaurant Week offers locals and visitors the unique opportunity to experience the diverse and high-quality dining options our Granite State culinary community offers,” said Mike Somers, NHLRA president and CEO.

For eight days, participating restaurants offer special menu items with various pricing options, some including a prix-fixe, three-course lunch and/or dinner menu.

“The chefs from our participating restaurants have once again done an exemplary job creating menus to fit every palate and budget,” Somers said.

Diners can sample some of New Hampshire’s finest and freshest local specialties in dining atmospheres that range from casual to elegant. Some participating restaurants boast water views, while others offer a hip city vibe. Rural New Hampshire establishments offer quaint, farm-to-table dining experiences.
