Up To The Minute News

Results of Downtown Binghamton's Restaurant Week

Last Update: 4/20 1:04 pm

Mayor Matt Ryan Tuesday joined downtown restaurant owners and fellow community leaders to announce the funds that Restaurant Week raised for the Boys & Girls Club, as well as next steps for the event.

“This event was a win for everyone involved,” said Mayor Ryan. “It raised money for the Boys & Girls Club, it attracted new customers to our downtown restaurants and it made the area that much more of a destination for residents and visitors. Downtown restaurant Week is another part of downtown’s revitalization, and I look forward to the next edition of this exciting event.”


Downtown Restaurant Week raised $1,942, and today a check was presented to Mary Beth Smith of the Boys & Girls Club.


With the success of the first Restaurant Week, organizers have decided to hold the event twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall. Each time, the Restaurant Week promotion will benefit a local non-profit.

The fall edition of the event will take place September 21st—30th, with funds being raised for the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW). In addition to the restaurants that were a part of the first Restaurant Week, organizers are seeking new participants.


The first-ever Downtown Restaurant Week took place from 16th—25th at seven restaurants, including the Kilmer Brasserie, Little Venice, Lost Dog Cafe, Mad Moose House of BBQ, Sake Tumi, Flan Club and Tranquil Bar/Bistro.
