Local Eats Week is a new twist on the Stoneham Restaurant Week foodie event launched in 2014. Local Eats Week has traditionally been held in early March, when fewer holidays are on the calendar and folks are anxious to get out and leave the winter months behind them.
Local Eats Week provides an excellent opportunity for Stoneham establishments to showcase their menus, introduce new culinary choices, and price items to attract existing and new customers wishing to explore the local dining scene.
The Chamber encourages participation of all Stoneham restaurants. As restaurants are added, their promotions are included in a “growing” list on the chamber’s website, Local Eats Week facebook page, and other social media. Diners are encouraged to check back regularly for further details.
The event also encourages non-food Stoneham businesses to offer promotions in conjunction with dining at participating restaurants. For example, Greater Boston Stage Company (formally Stoneham Theatre) has offered a discount on theatre tickets when diners show their restaurant receipt at the box office. Other businesses may offer special discounts on merchandise, classes, etc.
