Foodies, rejoice! BID Leicester has today announced that its very first Leicester Restaurant Week is coming to the city from 18th – 24th October. Shining a spotlight on some of the best eateries in Leicester, the week-long event will give locals and visitors alike the opportunity to try somewhere new or an excuse to head back to their favourite dining spot!

A hugely popular and successful concept in other key cities throughout the UK such as Newcastle, London and York, Restaurant Week gives businesses the chance to showcase a specially selected menu, or be creative and offer something new and exclusive to customers for the duration of the week.

From Fixed Price menus at £10, or special family menus to celebrate the fact that it’s Half Term, Leicester Restaurant Week is aiming to have something for everyone. So far, a number of restaurants have signed up to take part, including Orton’s Brasserie, Giggling Squid, Knight & Garter, Kayal, Herb and The Globe, with more to be announced over the coming weeks!

After what has been arguably the toughest 18 months within the hospitality industry, BID Leicester wanted to recognise and celebrate the sector. 

BID Director, Simon Jenner, commented: “We have seen first-hand the effect that the pandemic had on our city, specifically within hospitality. Leicester Restaurant Week has been something we as a BID team have wanted to run with for some time, particularly after seeing the hugely positive impact Restaurant Weeks have had (and continue to have) in other cities throughout the UK.

“It’s an opportunity to shine the spotlight on all the amazing eateries in the city, as well as encouraging both locals and visitors alike to come into Leicester and celebrate its amazing foodie scene. With all the various offers set to be available, you could dine out every night of the week for less than £100!”

Leicester Restaurant Week will be running throughout the city from Monday 18th – Sunday 24th October 2021.
