PORTSMOUTH, Va. - Portsmouth Restaurant Week will kick off beginning January 22, showcasing the port city's wide variety of food options and locally-owned small businesses.
Sponsored by Portsmouth Hospitality and in partnership with both the city and the Olde Towne Business Association, this year's Restaurant Week will last until January 29.
Participating local restaurants will offer special menus with options for two-course lunches at $10 or $15, and three-course dinners at $25 or $35.
“Portsmouth offers a wide array of food options,” said Danielle Babcheck with Portsmouth Hospitality. “We have American, German, Mexican, Italian, Thai, vegan, European, seafood and more. All are locally owned small businesses, some of which have been around for 20 to 30 years.”
