If they were fair to our taste buds, they would change the name from Schenectady Restaurant Week to Schenectady Restaurant Month.

It’s a way to reward existing customers for their loyalty, expose new people to the pleasures of dining in Schenectady, and remind all of the great restaurants, shops, and businesses we have downtown and in the communities. neighbours.
As part of the promotion, 15 participating restaurants will offer special fixed price menus for $30, a menu that includes a variety of appetizers, main courses and desserts.
If lunch is your thing, this year’s Restaurant Week will feature two restaurants for the first time offering three-course lunches for $20.
