Downtown Riverside Celebrates Restaurant Week June 20-30

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

As the hot spot for the region’s trendiest new dining establishments, Downtown Riverside restaurants are getting a chance to showcase their favorite menu items later this month during Downtown Restaurant Week.

The event is being coordinated by the Riverside Downtown Partnership (RDP) and will run from June 20-30, 2013.

Diners will enjoy special lunch or dinner menu items at special pricing at each of the participating restaurants*. As a further incentive for customers to try restaurants participating in Restaurant Week, RDP is coordinating an ‘Enter to Win’ contest during the promotion. Each participating restaurant will be provided with a supply of entry forms to provide to each customer ordering a Restaurant Week special or making a contribution to the restaurant’s fundraising effort. There will be two draws, one on Wednesday, June 26th and one on Wednesday, July 3rd, with two entries chosen in each for restaurant gift certificates.

Throughout Restaurant Week, patrons are asked to share their dining adventure on Instagram @RestaurantWeekDTRiverside.
