Don’t forget that “Winter Bites” starts next week. We’ll be out visiting Black Kettle Bistro for the closing of Owen Wolters (Windsor Visuals) photo exhibit on January 19th and then we’re going to head to Thai Palace to try the lunch or dinner menu.
Here’s the press release from Windsor Eats:
Windsor, ON –It’s time to give winter a kick! WindsorEats.com invites you to a week long event, the first of it’s kind in Essex County.
During Winter Bites, January 17 to January 23, 2010, diners can visit any participating restaurant and indulge in a 3-course meal for only $10 or $15 for lunch or $25 or $35 for dinner. Each restaurant will offer a unique Winter Bites menu where diners can select from a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts.
“We want to add excitement to the hospitality industry during a traditionally slow month,” explains Adriano Ciotoli, co-owner of WindsorEats.com. “2009 was a difficult year for culinary tourism in Windsor/Essex. We lost some exceptional restaurants. This is one way to support the local restaurant industry. We encourage everyone to get out and visit participating local restaurants and businesses.”
Participating restaurants include Mezzo Ristorante and Lounge, Black Kettle Bistro, Chanoso’s, Oishii, Per Bacco Ristorante, and more to be added. A complete listing of events, participating restaurants and menus can be found at www.windsoreats.com/winterbites Reservations are recommended to ensure a seating upon your arrival. The meals are per person and does not include beverages, taxes or tip.
“Restaurant weeks and prix fixe menu events have been done with great success in cities like Chicago, Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto,” says Ciotoli. “It was time to bring that same concept to Windsor but add our own little twist to it. Having local businesses participate is a wonderful way to celebrate all the great things we have in Essex County.”
In addition to great deals on dining, Winter Bites is adding something new this year. Local businesses are offering savings and hosting events.
Aleksander Estate Winery is offering discounted prices on select wines, Black Kettle Bistro is incorporating some of Windsor’s finest artistic talents to create not only a great culinary experience, but, a great taste of the Windsor arts and music scene and Slice of Style will be hosting a chocolate tasting accompanied with local wines.
“We are thrilled to be hosting this event as part of Winter Bites – the first “food festival” of the new year,” says Kelly Ouellette, owner of Slice of Style. “As a new business getting the word out is critical and Winter Bites is helping us connect with a very diverse local audience.”
