More than 25 eateries have signed up for Aberdeen’s first restaurant week to give people a taste of the Granite City.
The new project aims to boost customer numbers and showcase the best in Granite City cuisine.
Participating restaurants include, Rye & Soda, Moonfish, Musa, Cafe Harmony, Foodstory, Kirk View Cafe, Soul and the Carmelite.
Each restaurant has created a unique menu with a simple pricing structure for the event, which will run from February 1 to February 8.
A two-course lunch will be priced at £10 per person and a three-course dinner will cost £20.18 per person. The initiative is being launched by Aberdeen Inspired to encourage visitors and residents to support city centre restaurants during what is a quiet time of year.
Aberdeen Inspired’s evening and night-time economy manager Nicola Johnston said the initiative would encourage people to try some of the region’s best cuisine.
She said: “We are delighted with the response we’ve had from city centre businesses about the inaugural Aberdeen Restaurant Week.
“Similar projects have proved popular across the world, where it originated from in North America to the likes of Newcastle a little closer to home. Aberdeen Restaurant Week offers a unique incentive for customers to explore some of the best of Aberdeen’s cuisine and acts as an incentive for them.”
Cafe Harmony restaurant manager Francesco Di Nicola said: “I had the chance to create the menu with our head chef considering three simple factors: fresh, daily and natural local products delivered almost daily to our doors. We created the menu considering simple ideas and, of course, the ingredients are combined with our Mediterranean recipes.”
Adrian Gomes, managing director and CEO of 10 Dollar Shake, added: “Having seen similar initiatives in cities such Bristol and Portland, the prospect of Aberdeen’s finest restaurateurs working together should certainly whet the appetite.
