Spotlight New York Grown or Produced Ingredients restaurants as part of Taste NY at the Adirondacks Welcome Center Restaurant Week Challenge


Lake George, New York — Lake George Area Restaurant Week is back! The second week of this semi-annual event runs from Sunday, September 11 through Saturday, September 17, 2022.


This year, Taste NY at the Adirondacks Welcome Center is sponsoring the promotion with a “Restaurant Challenge” that tasks participating restaurants with creating a prix-fixe menu featuring at least one ingredient grown or produced in New York State. Each participating restaurant will offer its special three-course menu for only $30. Ingredients grown or produced in New York will be featured on these special Restaurant Week menus.


“We will be highlighting ingredients made in New York throughout this promotion, aiming to highlight the connection between New York producers and local restaurants to show the value of supporting small businesses and community relations,” said Gina Mintzer, executive director of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce. .


Participating restaurants span the Adirondack region, as this promotion goes beyond Lake George. All member restaurants of the Chamber are invited to participate.


Plus, customers can enter to win gift cards from participating restaurants. They simply need to ask their server for a Lake George Area Restaurant Week survey or post about their meal using #DineLGR on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok or Twitter, for a chance to win.


This year marks the 16th anniversary of the bi-annual Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce Restaurant Week promotion. The Chamber typically coordinates Restaurant Weeks in June and September — the weeks after Americade and the Adirondacks Auto Show — allowing year-round and seasonal restaurants to participate during less busy times. Participants this season include: 40 Oak Classic American Grille, Adirondack Pub & Brewery, BeBob’s Backstreet BBQ, Charlie’s Bar & Kitchen, Docksider Restaurant, Lobster Pot Restaurant, Log Jam Restaurant, Mario’s Restaurant, Nettle Meadow Tavern at the Hitching Post, Sans Souci, The View restaurant and the TR restaurant.


In 2020 and 2021, the Chamber offered Fall-themed Restaurant Appreciation Weeks in September. The promotion was reframed to recognize the hard work of area restaurant staff and the creativity of local chefs by offering the ingredient themes of apples and pumpkins.


Of 257 responses to a previous Restaurant Week survey, 97% rated their experience as “excellent” or “good.” A total of 41% of respondents said it was their first restaurant visit, showing that participating restaurants are exposed to new customers. Finally, 18% of respondents were local, while 82% of respondents


were visiting and staying at accommodation properties in the area.


“Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for people to sample the culinary talents of restaurants in our region. We hope visitors and locals enjoy this great value as well as the Taste NY mission of choose local, buy New York“, said Mintzer.


The special promotional price of $30 for a three-course meal includes only specific menu choices selected by participating restaurants, which are displayed on www.lakegeorgechamber.com/restaurant_week. The promotional price does not include taxes, tips and drinks. Some restaurants exclude certain days of the week. This information is also published on the Chamber Restaurant Week page. Reservations are strongly encouraged.


About Taste NY


The Taste NY initiative has seen steady growth and recognition since its inception in 2013. The program, which is overseen by the Department of Agriculture and Markets, creates opportunities for local producers to showcase their products in a variety of venues across the state and at major public events, such as the Great New York State Fair and the Barclays Tournament at Bethpage State Park. It has also helped participating farms and businesses reach more customers, increase online sales and, in many cases, expand their business’ processing capacity. Taste NY’s food and beverage companies also support farmers across the state by using New York-grown and produced ingredients in their products.
