Restau­rant Week pa­trons sali­vate for next year

Jamaica Gleaner - - FEATURE - Tick­oya Joseph Gleaner Writer

ALAS! AN­OTHER suc­cess­ful year of Restau­rant Week has come to an end all too soon. It was in­deed a week of great part­ner­ships, laugh­ter, fun, ex­cite­ment and well worth the weight gain.

As scrump­tious as it was, it was a week of more than just food, as mem­o­ries and bonds have been made to last a life­time, with over 85 restau­rants right across Ja­maica par­tak­ing in the ex­pe­ri­ence.

Hosted from Novem­ber 1119, this year’s success of the Gleaner-spon­sored Restau­rant Week is the result of a com­plex net­work of truly ded­i­cated per­sons who went above and be­yond the call of duty. Loads of grat­i­tude to the or­gan­is­ers, plan­ners, spon­sors, restau­ra­teurs and the de­light­ful on-the-ground staff who en­riched and per­son­alised each ex­pe­ri­ence. In fact, to show their commitment, work has al­ready be­gun on next year’s stag­ing, which will have you wish­ing that Restau­rant Week would never end.

Check out some of the highlights.
