First annual Latino Restaurant Week takes place this October
October 7, 2016
BOSTON - Mayor Walsh, Boston City Councillors and El Planeta newspapers today announced the First Annual Latino Restaurant Week in Boston. The Week celebrates the numerous Latino-owned and inspired restaurants in the City, and runs from October 6th to October 16th.
Originating in New York in the mid-nineties, the Week became popular with both restaurant-goers and owners who enjoyed discounted prices on certain dishes and an increased number of patrons. During Boston's Latino Restaurant Week, patrons will be able to order specialty appetizers, entrees and desserts at a discounted price.
"Latino Restaurant Week celebrates the cultural significance of our vibrant Latin American community and encourages residents and visitors to dine at local restaurants," said Mayor Walsh. "It's an excellent way to recognize Boston's Latino community while supporting local businesses."
"We are thrilled to have the support of Mayor Walsh and Boston City Council for the first ever Boston Hispanic Restaurant Week. El Planeta Media started working in this concept in 2014 and this year we could make it possible thanks to the support of the City Of Boston. We are confident that the Week will become the most 'delicioso' time of the year in our city, giving food lovers across different neighborhoods the opportunity to enjoy special menu items created for this celebratory week at some of the best restaurants in Boston," said Rafael Ulloa, editor of El Planeta Media.
Restaurant owners that are interested in participating in Latino Restaurant Week can do so by visiting here or reaching out to Alexandra Valdez in the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services at 617-635-2185.
