Returning for its second year, York Restaurant Week will run from Monday 2nd – Sunday 8th March 2020. Participating restaurants and their offers will be announced during February and vouchers will become available for download from Monday 17th February.
York Restaurant Week is organised by York Business Improvement District (York BID), and was set up
to drive footfall into some of the city centre’s finest dining establishments during a quieter time of
year. The initiative is being spearheaded by business support executive, Chris Bush.
“We know that York’s city centre has real peaks and troughs throughout the tourism calendar, but
the quieter times are fantastic for those living in York and the surrounding towns and villages to
make best use of the city centre – and that includes enjoying the hospitality and food provided by a
plethora of restaurants,” says Chris. “Food critic Giles Coren recently declared that York is the
capital of the food universe, and we’re keen to encourage locals to experience the wide range of
cuisines on offer through these fixed price deals.”
Indeed, participating restaurants are hoping that diners will step outside of their traditional comfort
zone and try something new during York Restaurant Week. “We all have our favourite restaurants
to which we return time and time again, so this is a great way of trying something different –
whether for a quick lunchtime bite, romantic dinner or a social occasion with friends,” adds Chris.
“With the Park & Ride services now running until late in the evening, this is a great opportunity for
those who work in the city to stay around a little longer and let someone else take the strain of
cooking dinner before heading home!”

Tim Sinclair, Director of Ambiente Tapas said. “We are really looking forward to the first Restaurant
Week in York & appreciate the fantastic opportunity it gives us to introduce our offer to new
customers. Having been involved with similar initiatives in Leeds we are confident that it will be a big
success with York’s foodies.”
To take advantage of the offers, diners register for the offer they would like at www.yorkrestaurantweek.co.uk, where they can find details of all participating restaurants and fixed price menus.
