- The 16th edition of this culinary festival runs from September 15 through October 10 with the participation of 49 regional restaurants.
Restaurant Week 2020 kicks off on September 15, coinciding with the start of Mexico’s Fiestas Patrias, a celebration of the country’s nationhood that stirs up its citizens patriotic fervor and extends even into its gastronomy.
This year, 49 restaurants in the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta have signed up to participate in the 16th edition of this culinary festival that encompasses three weeks, from September 15 through October 10.
During the festival, the destination’s renowned restaurants will offer innovative three-course menus (appetizer, main course, and dessert) at a reduced price. This year there will be three menu categories: $289, $399, and $466 MXN per person. The rates do not include beverages or tip.
The list of participating restaurants as well as their delicious menus can be found at restaurantweekpv.com/participants. Likewise, a menu guide has been distributed in print throughout both the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta.
Stimulating the restaurant business
Restaurant Week 2020 is organized by Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group and is supported nationally and internationally through the promotion generated by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, as well as by the different tourist agencies of Puerto Vallarta.
“Today more than ever, Restaurant Week returns to its original purpose: to stimulate the restaurant business of our region in times of need. We deeply appreciate the support of the restaurants and sponsors who are ready to work together towards this objective,” said Luis Mendoza, operations director for Vallarta Lifestyles Media Group’s Operations Director.
Moisés Hernández, managing director of Cristalería del Pacífico (cristaleriadelpacifico.com), this year’s Restaurant Week sponsor, commented: “We will work closely and in partnership to ensure this is the most memorable edition to date. We want this to mark a turning point towards renewed growth. Come join us and experience this culinary journey and let’s celebrate the fact that together we will emerge stronger from all of this.”
Meanwhile, Eugenio Morales, CEO for Vinoteca de México (vinoteca.com), also a sponsor of this year’s Restaurant week, highlighted the importance of reinventing oneself in these times: “Looking back, we can say we knew how to adapt. Though there is still a lot of work to be done, as a company we have sought to ensure that our workforce, both internal and external, felt the support and care that moves us to offer the best service and quality of products. In the end, all we want is to add value to our business partners and to society at large.”
