Littleton’s foodies should start priming their tastebuds for a special treat coming their way.
From Sept. 8 through Sept. 17, the Littleton Business Chamber is whipping up its first annual Littleton Restaurant Week.
For 10 days, 19 local establishments — including restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars and more — will participate in the event by offering special menus and discounts unique to each location.
Korri Lundock, executive director of the Littleton Business Chamber, said the goal of the week is to encourage people to eat at local restaurants — either to try something new or to visit an old favorite.
“The restaurants are very excited to encourage people to stay local and enjoy the great places we have in Littleton,” she wrote in an email to the Littleton Independent.
With many restaurants continuing to struggle with staffing issues and higher food and labor costs, Lundock said the chamber hopes this event will support small businesses.
Littleton diners can expect specials including three-course dinners, drink specials, flights and more.
At the Colorado Pinball Club, visitors will be able to get a Littleton Flipper Old Fashioned cocktail at a discounted $10 during restaurant week.
In-Tea will offer eight different tea flights and the chance to win a teapot, Lundock said.
GraceFull Café will host a three-course dinner at their Sept. 14 “A Taste of GraceFull” event during restaurant week. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear personal stories from several friends of the GraceFull Foundation that have made their way out of homelessness in the past year.
A full list of restaurants offering specials is available at https://littletonbusinesschamber.org/restaurant-week/.
During restaurant week, diners should tell establishments they are there for the event so they can get a run-down of the specials, Lundock said.
She added that restaurant week is a great opportunity to scout locations for future holiday parties, as many participating restaurants cater or host events.
