Invitation to Restaurants
Sign Up Now!
There is still time to sign up to participate in El Cerrito Restaurant Week 2016! (Please note that your restaurant name will not appear in the East Bay Express ad for Restaurant Week.)

This event is no cost to participating restaurants and is a great way to spread the word about your business, attract new customers, and celebrate being a part of the local community. 

Why participate?
The purpose of this event is to support our local restaurants and highlight the variety of cuisine offered in El Cerrito! We hope to build community and customer base by increasing foot traffic and restaurant visibility.

How will this event be promoted?
Restaurant Week sponsors have created some great promotional pieces to distribute to participating restaurants. These materials include posters, window placards and window clings as well as large banners that will be placed around the city. In addition, restaurants who sign up before the September 1st deadline will have their restaurant name listed in our ad in the East Bay Express and their special edition, Taste Magazine! 

How will restaurant owners participate?
The sponsors of El Cerrito Restaurant Week are requesting that restaurant participants offer deals and/or special menus to incentivize customers to dine out during restaurant week. (Deals might include a meal discount, a free appetizer or dessert etc.) Whether you offer the deal all day or for one meal per day is up to you!

Do you have questions or need ideas to promote Restaurant Week?
The City hosted two Public Info Sessions for restaurants. These sessions were just one way for us to assist you in making this event as successful as possible. If you were unable to attend and would like to find out more information about Restaurant Week, please contact Katherine Ahlquist, Community Development Analyst at 510-215-4361. There is also a list of resources below that include templates and suggestions for promotion.
