Since the inaugural winter event, Triangle Restaurant Week has grown to reach over 1.2 million residents and featured more than 85 of the region’s eateries, generating over $500k in additional revenue to the area’s restaurants.
“This January marks our sixth year participating in the bi-annual event,” said Sarig Agasi, owner of Zely & Ritz, organic bistro and wine bar in Raleigh, “This winter we’re looking forward to coming up with seasonal offerings which are native to North Carolina.”
