The Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce is again spearheading the community’s award-winning restaurant week dining campaign, SAVOR 2021, to be held through Sunday, Oct. 10.
Several locally owned restaurants including foodie favorites like 1818 Chophouse, Bella Milano, Cleveland Heath and Peel Wood Fired Pizza are busy crafting their restaurant week specials. This year’s initiative will also feature brand new destinations like City Scoops Creamery. Specially priced offerings – at convenient price points of $15 for lunch and $30 for dinner – will be highlighted by each participating dining establishment in addition to the regular menu.
“SAVOR 2021 is a salute to our community’s restaurateurs, cuisine and diners, and a celebration of the delicious fare that makes our region a culinary hot spot,” said Desiree Bennyhoff, Ed/Glen Chamber president and chief executive officer. “The 10-day campaign features a special opportunity for diners to visit old favorites and try new restaurants that have opened in our market.”
In addition to experiencing culinary excellence, diners may enter to win daily gift card drawings. One lucky winner will receive a grand prize bundle featuring a gift card from each participating restaurant. Contest entry and featured specials will be available online at facebook.com/EdGlenRestaurantWeek.
Katie Haas, coordinator of SAVOR 2021 and the chamber’s membership director, says the initiative’s primary purpose is to support and serve local restaurateurs. “This year has presented a unique set of challenges for the local restaurant industry. So, it is more important than ever that we focus on driving trips and transactions into our hardworking, quality- and value-driven dining community,” Haas said. “The Ed/Glen Chamber is a member-driven organization that is dedicated to a strong, private-sector regional economy,” she said. “To that end, we are fiercely committed to serving unique market sectors such as the local restaurant industry. We’re proud of the dining destinations we serve, and we encourage the public to support and celebrate them during restaurant week.”
