Pull up a chair, grab a fork, and come hungry.

New Bedford’s first Restaurant Week will take place from Saturday, September 15 to Friday, September 21. Enjoy the best of ‘Restaurant Row.’

Acushnet Ave, also known as ‘The Ave,’ is the heart of New Bedford’s North End. “This vibrant space pulses from Coggeshall Street to Lunds Corner.” Restaurant Week is a chance for local eateries, bakeries, and restaurants to showcase the culinary flavor of the area.

Eateries choosing to participate in ‘Restaurant Week’ will feature price fixed menus, promote special discounts, highlight signature dishes and offer entertainment. “It’s their choice – and their moment to showcase their kitchens.”

Follow Love The Ave on Facebook and checkout their new website HERE for updates.

"Restaurant Week is being organized by the content media firm, Twin Fish, LLC out of the Groundwork! coworking space in partnership with the New Bedford Economic Development Council (NBEDC) and the community group, Love The Ave – with enthusiastic support from Mayor Jon Mitchell’s office and various city departments."

"Eateries in the Restaurant Week area can also contact Steven Froias and Sarah Athanas, the Twin Fish team, at NewBedfordNow@gmail.com with any questions. They will be reaching out to owners and managers between now and July 15, too."
