Restaurants in Aberdeen are preparing to boost business and attract new customers next week during an initiative which aims to showcase the best cuisine the Granite City has to offer.
The first Aberdeen Restaurant Week will launch next Thursday when more than 30 restaurants will offer a unique menu at a special reduced price.
The event has been organised by Aberdeen Inspired to encourage visitors and residents to support city-centre restaurants during what is traditionally a quiet time of the year.
Participating restaurants include Rye & Soda, Moonfish, Musa, Café Harmony, Food Story, Kirkview Cafe, Soul, Café Boheme, McGinty’s Meal an’ Ale and the Carmelite.
A two-course lunch will be priced at £10 per person and a three-course dinner will cost £20.18 per person.
Adrian Watson, chief executive of Aberdeen Inspired, said: “As well as helping to increase footfall and customer spending, this project offers a unique incentive for customers to explore some of the best of Aberdeen’s cuisine.”
Andy Reiach, general manager of the Boozy Cow, said: “I had witnessed the success of restaurant week in Canada and the benefits it brought to the local economy, it increases footfall throughout the city centre and generates a buzz around the city.
“The idea to bring such events to Aberdeen can only enhance the industry here and bring excitement and a good vibe back to the city centre in the current economic climate.”
