The twelfth edition of Restaurant Week, a culinary event that will take place in the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta on May 15-31, 2016, was announced during a recent press conference.
The event is presented by Vallarta Lifestyles and is sponsored by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust and Bay Vallarta magazine.
There will be 41 participating restaurants offering special menu with prix-fixe three-course meals for MX$249 or MX$399 (the price does not include tips or beverages). This year there are seven new restaurants on the list and another seven that have participated for all the twelve years in a row.
Restaurant Week is known for evolving year over year and one of the improvements for 2016 is a pocket guide for menus.
Another very important aspect of the event that will help in the promotion of the participating restaurants is the creation of a bilingual newsletter titled Restaurant Week Foodie Report.
“This year we have made a commitment to promote the participating restaurants during the next 12 months via this monthly digital newsletter,” explained event organizer Paco Ojeda. “That way we can continue our mission of lending our support to the participating restaurants throughout the year. Thanks to this added value we’re certain even more restaurants will want to participate for 2017.”
The press conference took place in Mark’s Bar & Grill in Bucerías in the Riviera Nayarit.
This year also marks the official launch of the event’s website at Restaurant Week PV.
