An exciting new foodie project that will showcase the best culinary experiences across Scarborough is launching this year, with the first mouth-watering event to take place in March.

The concept, which was created by Scarborough Digital, The Green Room and Embers Scarborough Restaurant Week, has been funded with support from Yorkshire Coast BID.

The two new event weeks are open for all local cafes and restaurants to take part, with the aim to celebrate the best culinary delights Scarborough has to offer. The first event will take place from March 14th and the second later in the year from November 7th.

Dan Hargreaves from Embers, Scarborough said: “With the abundance of local produce and great chefs in Scarborough, we feel this is a great opportunity for people to try and experience what we have to offer”.

Phil Akrill from The Green Room, Scarborough said: “This is a great opportunity for restaurants and cafes in Scarborough to come together and show that there is great food and talent in our home town. The two events this year, are open to all restaurants and cafes, and we urge everyone to get involved and show what this area has to offer”.

All restaurants and cafés are encouraged to get involved and list bespoke special Restaurant Week Offers for the event, with menu prices starting from £5 and up to £20. The public will then get to download vouchers from to use exclusively during the week and enjoy Scarborough’s best and support local restaurants and cafes.
