The first participants in the return of the popular Aberdeen Restaurant week can be revealed.
The initiative is being held again in July aiming to bring more people into the city centre.
Organisers Aberdeen Inspired said they were delighted to announce the first batch of eateries taking part.
More than 40 city businesses took part in February, and the summer event, which runs from July 15 to July 21, will also include tasting menus, drink pairing menus and afternoon teas.
Kate Timperley, Aberdeen Inspired senior project manager, said: “We have a fantastic line-up of businesses taking part in Aberdeen Restaurant Week this month and are pleased to reveal our first participants. There was a great response from the public to the event in February and we are sure there will be even more appetite to celebrate our local city centre restaurants this time around.
“Our aim with Aberdeen Restaurant Week is to encourage everyone to take advantage of everything our city centre has to offer. It is all about sampling new food, trying new restaurants and enjoying the vibrant nightlife we are proud to promote in Aberdeen.”
Taking part is SNEAP, Carmelite, Hop and Anchor, Ferryhill House Hotel, The Stag, McGinty’s, Braided Fig, Cafe Boheme, BrewDog, Castlegate, Food Story, Revolucion de Cuba, Bistro Verde, Cafe Andaluz, Chaophraya, Jack’s Steakhouse, Native, Hilton Garden Inn and Topolabamba.
Ros Wardley Smith from the Carmelite Hotel said: “As a local independent business, we pride ourselves on being involved in any activity that promotes the city. Aberdeen Restaurant Week allows us a fabulous platform to launch our new summer menus.”
Craig Byiers, food and beverage director at SNEAP, said: “We will offer five menus over five evenings celebrating local produce that changes for each service.
“These menus will reflect our own passions for local sustainable produce and those of the people who produce them. There won’t be a choice, and there will be no demands, only come and enjoy.”
