Tasty Tuesdays Tease Taste Buds as Prelude to Restaurant Weeks, August 10 – 24

SAN ANTONIO (May 17, 2019) – South Texas foodies want more and Culinaria is delivering it Restaurant Week style with Tasty Tuesdays, a prelude to CULINARIA Restaurant Weeks, August 10-24. Now in its tenth year of Restaurant Week offerings, Culinaria extends even more opportunities to indulge every Tuesday in June, July and August.   Participating restaurants offer $15 three-course lunches and $30 three-course dinners – like the fabulous deals offered during Restaurant Weeks.

“One of our primary goals is to help expose and support the remarkable culinary talent we have in this city,” says Suzanne Taranto-Etheredge, president/CEO, CULINARIA. “Tuesdays are traditionally slower for the restaurant industry, so it makes sense to extend our Restaurant Weeks offerings to those nights. It might be the nudge folks need to get out and sample some of our city’s best gourmet options and still stay on budget.  Plus, downtown parking in San Antonio is free on Tuesdays, so locals can play tourist and not have to worry about $10 to $20 parking fees.”

Last year, eateries in neighboring Boerne and New Braunfels participated in Restaurant Weeks and provide menu offerings on Tasty Tuesdays.

Full details on participating restaurants, including Restaurant Week menus can be found at www.culinariasa.org.  Reservations are not required, but, are encouraged as walk-in service can’t be guaranteed.

As a non-profit organization, Culinaria has been promoting San Antonio as a premier destination for culinary, beverage and hospitality to an international audience, while also serving as a resource for educational opportunities in those fields. Events that make up Culinaria include Restaurant Weeks, a 5k Wine & Beer Run, the Wine + Food Festival and the Hallowine Run as well as smaller events with several community partner events.

Culinaria is continually expanding.  Additional participating restaurants are added weekly, as well as new events throughout the year.  Please visit culinariasa.org to learn about all of Culinaria Food + Wine events.

Culinaria is an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to promoting San Antonio as a premier wine and food destination while fostering community growth and enrichment. Culinaria is a registered 501 c (3) tax-exempt organization. A volunteer board of directors who represent the community and guide the organization in its mission to champion the wine and food industries governs Culinaria.
