Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams is kicking off Dine In Brooklyn 2017 in partnership with the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and Explore Brooklyn. Dine In Brooklyn will feature local restaurants throughout the borough and celebrates the five-star flavors that make Brooklyn a ‘must-taste’ destination.
From high-end, trendy restaurants to low-key, diverse eateries, from pizza pies to ramen noodles – from northern Brooklyn to southern Brooklyn – take this opportunity to try a new cuisine or restaurant.
“We know great food starts in Brooklyn, so, it makes total sense to ‘Dine In Brooklyn’ and support local economic development by eating and drinking in the borough. We want people to expand their horizons – if you live in Williamsburg, why not try something new in Sunset Park,” Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Andrew Hoan said in a statement.
Dine in Brooklyn 2017 will take place from Monday, March 20 through Thursday, March 30 with prix fixe dinners at $28, not including tax or gratuity; $15 lunch and $12 brunch specials will also be available at some eateries.
