Eat Out! Win Prizes! Support Norwood!
By Michele Taranto
As people are eager and confident to socialize once again, the enjoyment of dining out returns. To spur the occasion, and aid local restaurants still financially recovering from the restrictions of Covid-19, the Neponset River Regional Chamber is again partnering with the towns of Canton, Dedham, Norwood, Walpole, and Westwood to sponsor the second annual ‘Regional Restaurant Week.’ The event will take place Sunday, April 24 through Thursday, April 28.
“Everyone knows that restaurants have suffered greatly during the pandemic. We are eager to encourage everyone to dine out during Restaurant Week and of course to continue doing so afterwards,” Chamber President, Tom O’Rourke said.
Norwood restaurants that will be participating in the event are: Lewis’, One Bistro, Byblos, Tasos, the Common Café, Cheff’n & Eetin: Artisan Bakery & Eatery and Fuego Burritos & Bowls. Their specialized menus, special offers, and links to their websites can be found on the Chamber’s dedicated website at www.nrrchamber.com.
Norwood residents are encouraged to patronize the Norwood restaurants, as well as others from neighboring towns, to show their support and appreciation for the struggles they faced the past two years.
A social media campaign will be executed through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Diners will be encouraged to post selfies on the restaurant’s social media platforms to mark and celebrate the return to seated dining. Daily winners will be chosen through these platforms and gift cards to local restaurants will be awarded to the winners! Be sure to tag @nrrchamber and use #regionalrestaurantweek, in all the posts.
“We are excited to have the state resources to promote and assist local businesses and look forward to working with our partners Friends of Norwood Center, Dedham Square Circle and Destination Downtown in Walpole,” O’Rourke said. “We hope residents from Norwood and surrounding communities come out that week to support our local restaurants and partake in the specials they offer.”
