Let’s Eat! City Promotes Restaurant Week

Downtown features Joseph’s Steakhouse, Trattoria ‘A Vucchella, 29 Markle Court, Ralph -n- Rich’s, In The City and others as tasty destinations. Venture out to other neighborhoods and the city has some amazing gems as well.

CT Post reporter Brian Lockhart has more on the city’s plans to promote Restaurant Week.

Restaurant weeks have become a common way for Connecticut municipalities to promote the eateries within their borders and lure foodies to town.

And now Brdgeport, and more specifically its economic development office, is getting in on the action, hosting an event from June 24 to July 1 in coordination with the municipal small/minority business office, the Bridgeport Regional Business Council and the Downtown Special Services District.

Tiadora Josef, communications director for Mayor Joe Ganim, said that while other municipalities typically host their restaurant weeks in the spring and fall, “We wanted to capitalize on the summer months to coincide with all that Bridgeport has to offer during this time.”

She noted in particular the just-starting concert season at the warm-weather amphitheater that opened in 2021 and events at the adjacent entertainment/sports arena.

“We want to invite visitors and residents to explore and celebrate the multicultural and unique dining options available in Bridgeport,” Josef said.

  1. In Central Florida they have what’s called magical dinner. It usually runs from late August till mid October. Basically it’s the mid\ to higher end restaurants who would have a fix 3 course meal during this period. It’s an extremely popular event and a way for foodie’s to try restaurants that they would not go to because of the prices. Maybe Bridgeport and the surrounding cities like Stratford ,Trumbull, and Fairfield could come up with a similar concept.
