BRONX, N.Y. – Aug. 4, 2016 — The Throggs Neck Merchant Association is proud to announce the “Throggs Neck Summer 2016 Restaurant Week”.
The huge success of the first Throggs Neck Restaurant Week leads to a second restaurant week in less than a year.
The Throggs Neck Merchant Association will be coordinating the event which will take place August 19 through September 4, 2016. The event will take place for a period of 16 days, including 3 weekends, allowing you and your friends to experience the diverse food fare in Throggs Neck and neighboring communities.
Throggs Neck, located in the south eastern part of the Bronx and known for its share of Italian restaurants, has seen a change in the last few years. With an influx of new restaurants offering a wide selection of latin cuisine, from traditional Spanish, Mexican, and Puerto Rican to multi-cultural Latin Fusion, the dining possibilities in Throggs Neck have grown exponentially. With over thirty restaurants participating in the Throggs Neck Summer 2016 Restaurant Week event, you can chose from Italian, Latin, German, Irish, American and Japanese, prepared in traditional, nouveau or fusion techniques.
All restaurants participating in the Throggs Neck Summer 2016 Restaurant Week event will be offering a 3 course prix fixe dinner menu. Some restaurants will also be offering a 3 course prix fixe lunch menu, giving you a great excuse to plan your lunch meetings during this event. The cost for the prix fixe dinner at most restaurants will be $25, and some restaurants, with a higher price point, will be charging $35 for the dinner. The cost for the Prix fixe lunch will be $15.
