First Annual Menifee Restaurant Week
Sunday, January 24 - Saturday, January 30, 2021
In response to the ever growing demand in Menifee for new, eclectic, unique and epicurean delights and diversity of meal experiences, Restaurant Week in Menifee was born. As a budding new City, with an abundance of national tenants, and leases costs of new construction and a generational issue, delectable specialized food choices are clamored for which led to the "New.Better.Best" theme for 2021.
In light of the global pandemic, and the reduction of gatherings, Restaurant Week 2021 features three key parts:
Introducing New Eateries to Menifee.
A virtual Meet and Greet is being held in partnership with the Small Business Development Center's (SBDC) Restaurant Program, where home-based culinary and artisan eateries (as well as established eateries) can learn tips and advice on growing their business into a brick and mortar storefront in Menifee. In addition, information on the Menifee boomtown demographic and how Menifee's central location has one of the largest sales leakage for restaurants in the area to thrive unlike any other Southwest Riverside County location. The event is a way to build and attract NEW and growing local eaters in Menifee.
Assisting Existing Eateries in Menifee.
Individuals will also be able to win gift cards to local Menifee restaurants that are participating in this year's restaurant week, by shopping and sharing information on Menifee's Official Facebook page, their favorite Menifee restaurant or eatery and why! The rewards programs is part of the City's "MeniFREEwards" program, where participants can earn $10 for every $30 in local gift cards that they spend in Menifee with participating Restaurant Week Eateries. Additionally, there will be raffle gift cards each day of the week- so please follow our social media platforms!
