The first week in May means it is time for the annual Middlesbrough Restaurant Week, starting today on May Day Holiday.
This is the fourth annual Middlesbrough Restaurant Week and can be no doubt that there are more people enjoying eating out and there are far more venues out there. That has to be a very healthy sign for a town that is starting to establish itself as a foodie destination.
From independent cafés, bar-restaurants to much-loved family favourites and even high end restaurants, there has to be something for everyone in this year’s list. This is an open invitation to explore from Monday, May 1 to Sunday, May 7.
In total there are twenty outlets offering special menus, limited edition dishes and fantastic prices in restaurants across the town centre. Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to try somewhere new and sample more of what Middlesbrough has to offer.
I am looking down the list and thinking of where I have and where I haven’t been to eat. I reckon I will be needing to be cutting a couple of new notches in my belt by the time the week has finished. Then again there are some healthy eating options amongst those participating.
Oh an please note that Middlesbrough is passionate about supporting local suppliers and producers, and many restaurants participating in this year’s Restaurant Week are listed on the Growing Middlesbrough directory. So guests will be able to enjoy their meal with the knowledge that they are contributing to the local economy in more ways than one.
