Brooklyn Park, (MN) – 8/27/2019 – Mayor Jeffrey Lunde announced today that the week of September 9 through 13 is restaurant week in Brooklyn Park. The city is home to more than 100 restaurants. The eclectic group of restaurants range from high end to casual dining. Brooklyn Park, home to a very diverse population, where one in five residents are born in another country, brings authentic ethnic dishes to the metro.
To showcase the rich culture and diverse tastes throughout the city, Brooklyn Park will host its first ever restaurant week.
Five participating restaurants will give away a $25 gift card to customers or future customers who participate in the city’s social media contest happening throughout the week. Also, for restaurant week, Brooklyn Park’s newest restaurant “The Brooklyn” at Edinburgh USA will offer a special two-course lunch special for $14 and a special three-course dinner menu for $28.
“Brooklyn Park wants to support our independently owned restaurants. Many do not have a budget for fancy commercials or advertising, so the city tries to help with marketing. We want them to grow and stay in the city they love,” said Mayor Jeffery Lunde. “There are only five days in the week, so we chose five restaurants that show the breadth of Brooklyn Park’s restaurant scene. However, we plan to spotlight many of our other restaurants in a different way.”
Five restaurants will be featured on social media throughout the week to highlight the wide variety of foods that can be found in the city. Other restaurants will be featured in other ways such as the city newsletter and city website.
Signs will be posted throughout the city and near the participating restaurants:
El Rancho Mexican Restaurant
Fat Nat’s Eggs
Milah’s Royal Bistro
Mi-Sant Banh Mi Co.
The restaurants will have featured stories of business owners, videos, short articles and prizes. Follow the city on social media for restaurant week updates at the following channels:
