Coastal Bend Restaurant Week aims to fuel the local economy and appetite
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Several companies in Coastal Bend are planning an event that is sure to feed your appetite. The very first week at Coastal Bend Restaurant begins September 24 and will run for 10 days.
Let Them Eat Cake Eatery owner Michelle Donnelly said this culinary event couldn’t come at a better time.
“Big restaurants are killing us because they can have specials and they can get things cheaper. But for us, our grocery bill doubled and theirs didn’t, ”says Donnelly.
Until October 3, 20 local restaurants invite customers to discover special dishes and special offers.
“It’s amazing that we can all get together, I wish we could have done that sooner. I think, again, that businesses help businesses, that’s what it’s all about,” Donnelly shares.
The goal of the week is to showcase all that our local restaurants have to offer.
“There is no place like Corpus Christi, our food is absolutely wonderful,” says Mirza Pearson, from Corpus Christi who hosted the event. “Corpus Christi is unique in its own way… people need to know that,” she says.
The prix fixe menus will offer couples lunches / brunches for as little as $ 25. Special offers for families will also be available. It offers restaurants in downtown Corpus Christi, Sinton and Padre Island.
After facing the hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurants are thrilled with such an opportunity to welcome old and new customers.
“It was really tough for us and a lot of other restaurants to survive during the pandemic, and not only to survive, but a lot of us thrived… and we’re still here. We are ready to serve and welcome customers, ”says John Roman, an employee of Sal’s Bronx Pizza.
Some of these eating places have already seen an increase in booking calls and are expecting more throughout the week.
“The weather is phenomenal, the menus are out, have fun this weekend… for the duration of the ten days,” says Pearson.
