LURAY, March 13 — As blossoms battle with the last spurts of winter, it’s time to shake off that cabin fever and hit the town for a night out or a casual lunch at one Page County’s great eateries. All this week special plates and special rates will be available to highlight the wonderful local cuisine available during the 2023 Page County Restaurant Week.
Whether it’s a ribeye steak at Ollie Cat or the Tomahawk steak at Dan’s, duck at the Mimslyn or seafood at Watch & Warrant, there will be plenty of offerings to please any taste. Get a wholesome breakfast at Jess’s or Hawksbill Diner, followed by lunch with dessert at Gathering Grounds or Valley Cork and then a genuine Mexican dinner at Rancho Viejo or authentic Italian dishes at Il’ Vesuvio’s or Mama Mia’s. The list of tempting smells and tastes across Page County continues to grow.
“Restaurant Week is a good time to connect with your local community,” Luray-Page County Chamber of Commerce President Gina Hilliard said. “Restaurant week is a promotional strategy designed to help boost business for participating restaurants, especially during slow times of year when most local restaurants aren’t receiving many visitors.”
All this week, check out the “Sandwich Special of the Day” at West Main Market and Deli, or the Irish-inspired cuisine from Main Street Bakery with lunch specials on Wednesday and Thursday, and lunch and dinner at Hawksbill Brewery on Friday (dinner) and Saturday (lunch). Broad Porch Coffee offers “pick me ups” from around the world, along with breakfast sandwiches, sweets and a great place to relax next to the Main Street bridge. A new special haven for women, The Coffee Shop, also offers a good cup of Joe and a wonderful atmosphere in Stanley.
“Page County has incredible places to eat, and Restaurant Week is our County’s way of celebrating and promoting them,” Hilliard said.
And while we suggest trying something new this week…even when you head out to your regular spots like Mrs. B’s, Brookside, Anthony’s, Hawksbill Diner, Rudy’s or East Wok, make sure to save your receipts.
The third annual Page County Restaurant Week will feature a special promotion in which the winner will earn a $250 dining spree to various restaurants in Page County. Email receipts during the week to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop them off at 18 Campbell Street, Luray, by 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 19 to be entered into a drawing for the $250 dining spree sponsored by Page County Economic Development and Tourism. The winner will be selected on Monday, March 20.
“You don’t have to travel far for a delicious meal or a fun night out,” Hilliard said. “Restaurant Week is the perfect time to try a new eatery, dish or re-discover a local favorite.”
During the week, make sure to check out the specials that our local restaurants are offering. The now annual event began three years ago when the Chamber of Commerce worked with the three towns and the Luray Downtown Initiative to promote local restaurants just prior to the start of tourist season.
Food is something that everyone can connect over. Whether you like juicy burgers, cheesy nachos, a good cup of coffee, or something sweet, Page County has plenty of food to enjoy. With a variety of flavors to savor that won’t disappoint.
