More Than Just Dinner’s on the Docket at Maine Restaurant Week 2011

PORTLAND, Maine — Restaurants across the state are gearing up for the third annual Maine Restaurant Week, taking place March 1-12. Restaurants around Maine will participate in the event by featuring special three-course dinners ranging in price from $20-$40. Some restaurants will also offer three-course prix-fixe lunches from $15.

Restaurant Week celebrates the vibrancy and richness of Maine’s culinary traditions while giving restaurants a much-needed boost during the slowest time of the year.

More than seventy restaurants are already registered for the March 2011 Maine Restaurant Week, from Eliot to Bangor to Rockland. A list of participating restaurants and featured menus is available on www.mainerestaurantweek.com.

Kicking off Maine Restaurant Week is The Signature Event™, on Monday February 28 at the Masonic Temple in Portland. It features a cocktail competition and two dessert competitions, and will raise money for Maine Harvest Lunch. The Incredible Breakfast Cook-off™ will take place Friday morning, March 4 at the Seadog Brewing Company in South Portland. The Cook-off will raise money for Preble Street Resource Center. For more information about these events, visit www.mainerestaurantweek.com.

Maine Restaurant Week is sponsored by Down East Magazine, Maine Today Media, Citadel Broadcasting, Shipyard Brewing Company, and Native Maine Produce with additional support from the Maine Office of Tourism.
