More Than 50 Restaurants Participating in MoCo Eats Week Through Monday, May 3

More than 50 Montgomery County restaurants are participating in “MoCo Eats Week,” which will continue through Monday, May 3. Warm spring weather has contributed to an outstanding turnout for the opening days of the special week that was organized by Visit Montgomery and the County’s Department of Alcohol Beverage Services.

MoCo Eats Week was organized to allow diners to enjoy food and drinks at discounted prices. It is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to explore the diverse culinary scene in the County. For restaurants, it is a way to encourage old customers to return to their favorite places and to introduce themselves to new customers enticed by the campaign.

The event is not a typical restaurant week. In MoCo Eats Week, participating restaurants are not limited to specific areas nor are given strict instructions on how meals must be offered. MoCo Eats Week is open to all restaurants, as well as craft beverage producers and local food producers.

The details of MoCo Eats Week include:
  • Businesses pick their own deals or discounts. They can offer both dine-in and carry-out options.
  • Participants are listed in the Digital Savings Pass, where consumers can check-in to their location to redeem deals.
  • Self-guided itineraries are available to suggest clusters of deals throughout the county.
  • In-person and virtual events are being held all week long. Businesses can host an event during the week or submit pre-recorded events. (These can be cooking or cocktail-making segments, history happy hours, tastings or other creative offerings.)
Diners supporting the participating restaurants can win gift cards or one of six staycation overnight packages. Details about restaurant week giveaways and how to sign up for a digital savings pass are available at https://visitmontgomery.com/moco-eats/restaurant-week-giveaways/.
