Georgetown County will have its own version of a restaurant week this February, something meant to support restaurants and deliver tasty dishes to customers at an affordable price point.
Georgetown Foodland's Jamie Sanderson says "Restaurant Showcase Week" is a way to give locals their chance to experience the flavors in our eateries and feel special while doing so.
"This is a simplistic event. Restaurants were asked to create a three-course menu at $35. There's been lots of feedback since announcing this. Lots people are very interested. There have been a few restaurants whom have submitted menus. We have one sweet-treat focus, too. The foundation will be built the first week of February 2021 so we may have the opportunity to make this annual."
An event page has been created, where menus will be posted for all restaurants participating.
Sanderson goes on to say this is just the start.
"The culinary industry in Georgetown has seen an uptick in customers in the past few years. The pandemic has taken a toll on restaurants. We've lost some to it. But, the future is innovative concepts and menu pivots. Take-out alone will not support our restaurants. We have to have dine-in, inside and out. We have to have special events. We have to focus on both locals and tourists, not one or the other. Down the road, bigger events are being thought of and planned. If we are safe, we can pull these off to help all our culinary families and friends stay afloat, and build a great local foodie base."
This week-long event is the first of its kind and will evolve over time. It's meant to help get locals out and enjoy our restaurants and be part of something unique. The week begins Monday, February 1, and ends end of day Sunday, February 7.
Plus, it's the lead-up to one of the biggest eat-out days of the year, Valentine's Day.
