Restaurant Week to Benefit CHOW 9/21 - 9/30

Mayor Ryan and Restaurant Owners Announce Details of the Fall Edition of Binghamton Restaurant Week

Last Update: 12:14 pm

From the Office of the Mayor:

Mayor Matt Ryan today joined Binghamton restaurant owners to announce details of the fall edition of Binghamton Restaurant Week. The event has expanded to feature twice as many restaurants as the spring edition, as well as a lunch special in addition to the dinner special.

“This event is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to enjoy our local restaurants and support an important cause, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse,” said Mayor Ryan. “The first edition of Restaurant Week was very successful, and this next one promises to be even better. Our city features a wide variety of excellent restaurants, and Restaurant Week brings attention to them, as well as our other attractions and amenities. I applaud the event organizers for their spirited efforts, and I invite everyone to enjoy the offerings over the next week.”

After last March’s first-ever Binghamton Restaurant Week raised nearly $2,000 for the Boys & Girls Club, organizers decided to hold the event twice annually, in the spring and fall. The fall edition of Restaurant Week includes additional restaurants, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW).

“The Broome County Council of Churches is appreciative to the downtown restaurants for their support of our CHOW program,” said Rev. Dr. Joseph Sellepack, Executive Director of the Broome County Council of Churches, under which CHOW operates. “In difficult economic times like these, it takes an entire community of people to care for our hungry neighbors. We want to express our deepest appreciation to the patrons and the restaurant owners for playing their part and serving those in need of food. Together we can put a stop to hunger in our area.”


The new lunch special features three courses for $8. The participating restaurants include Crepe Heaven, Downtown Cabana, Little Venice Restaurant, Nezuntoz, Sake-Tumi, Whole in the Wall, The Flan Club and Lost Dog Café.


The dinner special features 3 courses for $20. The restaurants participating in this portion of Restaurant Week are Crepe Heaven, Little Venice Restaurant, Sake-Tumi, Whole in the Wall, The Flan Club, Lost Dog Café, Tranquil Bar & Bistro, Mad Moose House of BBQ, Holiday Inn, Number 5 Restaurant, Downtown Cabana, Grande’s Bella Cucina.

“We're very excited about Binghamton’s second Restaurant Week,” said Marie McKenna, owner of the Lost Dog Café. “It’s a great event for a great cause.”
