Eat Your City Restaurant Week

Appetites rejoice!

The 2012 Eat Your City Restaurant Week has officially begun and we thought we would provide you with some tips to help you enjoy the week in a fun and unique way. So here we go:

Vegans Can Enjoy The Week Too

Vegans, rejoice! Rampersad’s Roti has once again stepped up to the plate and provided a location that allows vegans to enjoy Eat Your City Restaurant Week as well. How can me make this news even better? How about this. As well as a $25 menu option, Rampersad’s is also offering a $10 three-course menu! Check out their menus here.

Spread Your EYC Love

As always, we encourage you to take lots of photos and share them with us on twitter with the #eatyourcity hashtag of tag on Facebook.

Make An Experience Out Of It

There are many ways you can create an entire experience around your Eat Your City Restaurant Week meals. Just in case you were needing some assistance, we posted an article on The Windsor Star that showcases many different and fun ways to expand your experience beyond the meal. Do you have your own way of making an experience out of your EYC meal? Tell us in the comments below!

Bikes & Beers

Like beer? If so, you’ll love our Bikes & Beers cycling tour which takes place on Saturday, August 11, 2012. The weather looks like it will be fantastic: 26° C (79° F) and lots of sunshine. We’ll be visiting Sweet T’s Soul Cookin’, Motor Burger and Rock Bottom where we’ll be tasting beer and food at each. Tickets are still available. Click here for more information.

One of the great things about this Bikes & Beers cycling tour is that all 3 restaurants we’ll be visiting are also participating in Eat Your City, so if you liked what you sampled you can always head back and enjoy a meal from their restaurant week menu.

Try Something New

If you haven’t noticed, one of the great things about Eat Your City Restaurant Week is that some restaurants offer new items that have never been on their regular menus before. So even if you’re wanting to visit a regular of yours, you can make it something fresh and new by ordering one of the new items on their EYC menu. Some examples are:

  • Sweet  T’s Soul Cookin’ is offering a Pulled Chicken Poutine
  • Tecumseh Roadhouse is showcasing an Applejack Chicken
  • Walkermole has created Chipotle Glazed Back Ribs
  • The Manchester has whipped up a Tennessee Rub 1/2 Chicken Dinner.

These are just a few of many examples. Check out the participating restaurant menus for more.

A Chance to Support Local Suppliers

There are a few restaurants who wanted to showcase their commitment to using local suppliers on their Eat Your City Restaurant Week menus. One example is the Artist Cafe located inside Caesars Windsor. They have created a blueberry themed menu based off of local blueberry farm, Klassen Blueberries.

Another example is Mettawas Station who is offering menus that are littered with local suppliers who will be providing him with apples, rainbow trout, peaches, ricotta cheese and more.
