THE tastiest date on Sunderland’s calendar is about to return, with the news that the city’s Restaurant Week will be back.

From 17 to 25 September locals and visitors will be able to dine out at cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs at a bargain price, with a whole host of special deals on offer.

And that means good news for anyone who wants to try a new venue or return to a favourite.

Organiser, Sunderland BID, has already had a fantastic response from eateries across the city to take part – including a number of places signing up for the first time.

New restaurants which have opened recently in the city – such as My Delhi at Borough Road – have joined the fast-growing number of restaurants taking part.

Also participating are BURGeR, The Engine Room, Chili Mangoes, Spice Empire, House of Zen, Enfes and Fausto Coffee, who will join Ttonic, The Old Vestry and Spent Grain, along with, Asiana, 808, Sweet Petite, and The Palm.

Each participating venue will be putting together a menu for £5, £10 or £15, giving foodies the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of cuisines across a whole host of venues.

Sharon Appleby, Chief Executive of Sunderland BID, is looking forward to showcasing the city’s fast-growing food scene and believes this year is going to be a bumper event.

“Sunderland has an incredible selection of restaurants offering a huge range of cuisines,” said Sharon.

“And we are getting a huge response to Restaurant Week, with more places signing up to take part every week.

“As well as being a great time to discover new places to enjoy or to have an excuse to go back and visit a favourite, it also gives a great boost to the local economy.

“Restaurant Week continues to be one of the most popular events on the local calendar and we are looking forward to having another fantastic week.”
