Jessica O’Donnell, Executive Vice President of Affiliated Chambers for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber commented, “It’s been a challenging year to say the least and our restaurant community needs us now more than ever. Restaurant Week comes at a great time. Plan ahead, take a break from home cooking, and enjoy the many great specials our restaurants have to offer. You’ll be glad you did!”
Due to COVID-19, the Chamber warns that there is an inherent risk of exposure in any public place where people are present, but feels confident in the support of the community to abide by the rules and regulations set forth so restaurant week can be enjoyed by all. Many restaurants have outdoor dining and those with indoor dining are at limited capacity to best protect their patrons. Take out and delivery options are available as well.
Now more than ever the restaurants and businesses throughout Nazareth need your support. Get out, shop, eat, and drink because sip, sip, hooray, Restaurant Week is on its way!
