It’s the best time of year for Sunderland foodies, as a popular culinary event returns later this month.
Sunderland Restaurant Week takes place from 21 to 29 September, with a variety of dishes and deals on offer for £5, £10 and £15 per person.
And more than 20 Wearside eateries have signed up to take part, with more expected to join in the coming weeks.
New additions to the list this year include Italian-themed buffet Endless Pizza at Green Terrace and Asian fusion restaurant House of Zen, at Whitburn Road, Seaburn.
Many of last year’s favourites have returned, such as 808 Bar & Kitchen at St Thomas Street, Asiana at West Wear Street, Grosvenor Casino at Lambton Street, Nando’s at High Street West and both Port of Call sites, at Sunderland’s Park Lane and Seaham’s North Terrace.
Sharon Appleby, Head of Business Operations at Sunderland BID, is confident the event will be great success.
“We have a fantastic food and drink scene in Sunderland and Restaurant Week is the perfect way to celebrate this,” said Sharon.
“It’s a great opportunity to try somewhere new and make the most of the excellent deals on offer.
“There are eateries all over the area taking part this year, offering a wide variety of cuisines, and it’s sure to be one that diners won’t want to miss.”
