Binghamton Restaurant Week will have 25 restaurants participating

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — The spring 2018 edition of Binghamton Restaurant Week is scheduled for Tuesday, March 20 through Thursday, March 29 with lunch and dinner deals at 25 Binghamton restaurants.

Binghamton Mayor Richard David, Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, Broome County Executive Jason Garnar, members of the organizing group eatBING, and charity beneficiaries announced details during a Friday news conference at the newly opened Craft Bar and Kitchen, located at 135 Washington St. in Binghamton.

 “Now in its 17th iteration, Binghamton Restaurant Week provides the perfect opportunity to sample our excellent local restaurants, while supporting amazing local charities like A Room to Heal, Inc. and Showers of Hope,” Marie McKenna, of the Lost Dog Café and president of eatBING, said in a news release.


Binghamton Restaurant Week is now a bi-annual event. A percentage of all meals purchased during the 10-day event will benefit Showers of Hope and A Room to Heal, Inc.

Showers of Hope is a traveling truck that provides showers for the homeless, according to an Oct. 19, 2017 article on the website of WBNG-TV. A Room to Heal works to “create healing environments in the homes of children affected by serious medical conditions in our community,” according to a description on the website of the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce.

 “A Room to Heal is thrilled to be receiving this amazing support from the Binghamton restaurants and the community,” Linda Snyder, executive director of A Room to Heal, said in the news release. “We are so fortunate to be able to continue our mission and will soon finish our 100th room project, thanks to this generous community.”

“Restaurant week showcases the continued growth and development of downtown Binghamton,” Binghamton Mayor Richard David said in the release. “It’s great to see our city fast becoming a regional dining destination, but more importantly that we support important organizations that better our community.”

Since its founding in September 2010, Binghamton Restaurant Week has brought in more than $3.4 million in Restaurant Week sales at participating restaurants and resulted in over $100,000 in donations to charity partners, the release stated.
