Thanks to Presenting Sponsor, Bankwell

The Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce and presenting sponsor Bankwell are pleased to announce the 13th Annual Hamden Restaurant Week, from Monday, October 16 through Saturday, October 22, 2023.

“We are delighted to work with Bankwell again. This is the eight year that Bankwell has partnered with the Chamber to sponsor this important annual event,” said Nancy Dudchik, HRCC President.  “Thirteen years ago, when we launched Hamden Restaurant Week, we never would have expected it to grow as much as it has.  With so many diverse and new restaurants offering unique options, this week has become a yearly destination for people, from all over the state, to come and experience Hamden’s local eateries.  We encourage the community to come out especially this week and support local dining!

“We always look forward to supporting this wonderful event and the local restaurants in Hamden.  It’s an ideal way to discover new restaurants or revisit old favorites and at such great prices,” stated Beth Iannone, Market Manager, Vice President at Bankwell.

Restaurant Week is open to any restaurant or eatery in Hamden; participating restaurants agree to offer a range of either a $9 to $16 prix fixe lunch, a $20 to $36 prix fixe dinner or both.  Please visit www.iloverestaurantweek.com for a full list of participating restaurants and their offering.

We’re looking forward to promoting all our area restaurants for this un-fork-edible week!
