MAIN STREET IOWA RESTAURANT WEEK
BURLINGTON, Iowa- Greater Burlington will participate in the first ever Main Street Iowa Restaurant Week, September 15-24. The week encourages Iowans to travel to and dine in Main Street communities across the state.
During the 10-day event, nearly 150 restaurants in 16 communities will feature a variety of special dining offers, such as community-wide passports that reward diners for visiting local restaurant, price fixe options and more. Visit traveliowa.com/msirestaurantweek for details. Diners are encouraged to share their experiences by using #MSIRestaurantWeek on Instagram and Twitter.
“Restaurants in Main Street communities provide a broad variety of unique flavors in mom-and-pop cafes and white-table clothed eateries,” said Jim Engle, director of the Iowa Downtown Resource Center. “These restaurants, bars and bistros provide a key ingredient to the thriving social, business and residential life in the historic commercial districts in Main Street Iowa communities.”
“People crave authentic experiences, especially food, when they travel. They want to eat where the locals do,” said Shawna Lode, manager of the Iowa Tourism Office. “Main Street Iowa Restaurant Week provides a great opportunity for Iowans to explore locally owned restaurants in charming communities across the state.”
