BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Binghamton Mayor Richard David and members of eatBING will present a check for $4,000 to Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network, this year’s Binghamton Restaurant Week charity partner.

The presentation is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday at Dos Rios Cantina, located at 60 Court St. in Binghamton.

The 18th Binghamton Restaurant Week ended Oct. 18, raising $4,000 for the organization.

“Mothers & Babies is thrilled to have been chosen as the charity recipient for the 2018 Fall Restaurant Week.” Sharon Chesna, executive director of Mothers & Babies Perinatal Network of SCNY, Inc., said in the news release. “A heartfelt thanks to eatBING for choosing Mothers & Babies!”

Since its founding in September 2010, Binghamton Restaurant Week has brought in more than $4.3 million in Restaurant Week sales at participating restaurants and resulted in nearly $125,000 in donations to charity partners.

Binghamton Restaurant Week is held twice annually.

About the promotion

Throughout the 10-day Restaurant Week promotion, patrons at 26 participating restaurants could purchase three-course meals for as little as $10 for lunch and $30 for dinner. Each restaurant develops its own menu — many with multiple options for each course. Each restaurant chose to offer a lunch special, a dinner special, or both.

Fall 2018 Restaurant Week participants included 205 Dry; Alexander’s Café; Burger Mondays Bar & Grille; Chroma Cafe & Bakery; Citrea; Cortese Restaurant; Craft; Dos Rios; Galaxy Brewing Company; Garage Taco Bar; House of Reardon; Little Venice; Loft at Ninety-Nine; Lost Dog Café; Number 5; Old World Deli; Peterson’s Tavern; Remliks; Sake-Tumi; Social on State; South City Publick House; Taj Tandoor; Thai Time; The Colonial; The Shop; Water Street Brewing Co.; and Whole In The Wall.

The group eatBING organizes Binghamton Restaurant Week. It describes itself as a group of “committed, small-business owners wanting to promote the diverse, innovative food and beverage culture in Binghamton” while raising money for charities and arts organizations in Broome County.
