Beaverton Restaurant Week returns next week for the fifth consecutive year between September 23 and October 3 in downtown Beaverton. Produced by the Beaverton Downtown Association and the City of Beaverton, the promotion features approximately 35 restaurants with unique, limited-time menu items during this 10-day promotion. Some restaurants are also offering a 10% discount for frontline workers. To see participating restaurants, visit www.beavertonrestaurantweek.com.
Beaverton Restaurant Week highlights food from around the world. Beaverton is home to Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Iraqi, Mediterranean, Scandinavian, Italian, Burmese, and El Salvadorian food. The downtown district is also home to several family-owned pubs, coffeeshops, and tap houses. The concentration of restaurants in downtown Beaverton means that within one visit, visitors can get a bubble tea from one shop, a burger from another, and a locally-brewed beer just steps away. Public, outdoor dining is available at the First Street Dining Commons, where visitors are welcome to bring food purchased at any local restaurant. A variety of seating options, including a children’s play area, is available.
“In a time when owning a small business has been really challenging and exhausting, the downtown community has been remarkably resilient. Over the past year-and-a-half, many of the businesses in downtown have invested even more heavily in community support, and Beaverton Restaurant Week is our opportunity to highlight them in return,” stated the Beaverton Downtown Association executive director, Kevin Teater.
“We want to show Beaverton that downtown is still here, and that us business owners really care about each other and the community,” echoed Carina Comer, the owner of Carina’s Bakery. “And we make really good food,” she added with a laugh.
“Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of the year,” said Mayor Beaty. “Downtown Beaverton chefs and bakers roll up their sleeves and serve up plates that are as beautiful as they are delicious. We have one of the best restaurant scenes in the Northwest!”
“Beaverton has become a culinary hotspot and with so many new restaurants and food carts to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start!” said Councilor Allison Tivnon. “I hope to see you out and about at this year’s Restaurant Week, trying new delicious food, revisiting past favorites, and supporting small businesses who contribute so much to our community.”
“Beaverton Restaurant Week provides a great opportunity to enjoy fine dining in our lovely city and is a great way to support our local businesses and communities,” said Councilor Nadia Hasan.
See you in downtown Beaverton!
