(St. Augustine, Fla.) – Over a dozen independently-owned restaurants throughout St. Augustine will present special lunch and dinner menu experiences during the St. Augustine Independent Restaurant Association’s (SAIRA) Restaurant Week October 15 – 21.

This year marks the third year of the weeklong dining event when diners can try a variety of cuisines and flavors prepared by local chefs.

“Restaurant Week is a culinary celebration of St. Augustine’s best independently-owned restaurants,” said Jeremy Ticehurst, President of SAiRA. “Every restaurant is excited to showcase their most creative, delicious, and flavorful dishes to Restaurant Week participants.”

Lunch menu experiences are $20.00 per person and dinner menu experiences are $35.00 per person. Participants can pick up a Restaurant Week Passport at any SAiRA member establishment listed at StAugustineRestaurants.com/RestaurantWeek.

Diners who order from a SAiRA member Restaurant Week menu will receive a Passport sticker.

Passports with five stickers can then be redeemed at the sixth SAiRA member restaurant visit for $25 off through November 16, 2018.

SAiRA membership is made up of independently-owned restaurants located in St. Augustine, from Vilano Beach to downtown and throughout St. Augustine Beach. The association’s mission includes building relationships through the sharing of information and supporting local independent restaurants.

Member restaurants work side by side to help each other exceed the expectations of their guests and advance St. Augustine’s unique culinary and cultural diversity. Together, they leverage resources and hospitality to financially and physically support organizations throughout the St. Augustine community. Additionally, members support the SAiRA Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to helping workers within the hospitality industry in times of extreme need and to promote hospitality-based education.
