Chamber spearheading 7th annual restaurant week for Edwardsville, Glen Carbon

The Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce is again spearheading the community’s award-winning restaurant week dining campaign, SAVOR 2022©, to be held from Saturday, Oct. 1 through Monday, Oct. 10.

Several locally owned restaurants including foodie favorites like 1818 Chophouse, Bella Milano, Cleveland Heath, and Chava’s Mexican Restaurant are busy crafting their restaurant week specials. This year’s initiative will also feature brand new destinations like 1818 Offshore, Twisted Biscuit, and Creations by Kiki. Specially priced offerings – at convenient price points of $15 for lunch and $30 or $60 for dinner – will be highlighted by each participating establishment in addition to the regular menu.

“SAVOR 2022© 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

Katie Haas, coordinator of SAVOR 2022© and the chamber’s membership director, says the initiative’s primary purpose is to support and serve local restaurateurs. “I continue to be impressed by the level of excellence our local restaurants demonstrate as industry leaders and community supporters. This is our chance to highlight their talent and 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 added. “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.”
