Local Restaurant Week started in Manhattan as a way to bring in more tourists, stimulate the economy, and promote local food culture. The concept then spread to Chicago, Los Angeles and across the country in communities large and small. Since Palmer’s has been supplying local restaurants with quality products since 1850, we decided we would like to celebrate the local restaurateurs who bring so much to our community.


Restaurants in Rochester are a driving force in our economy. Besides generating tax revenues, they create jobs and build careers for thousands of people. Restaurant jobs represent 8% of all employment in New York State. Your local restaurant is your neighbor. They support local charities, sponsor sports team for our children, recycle and support local farmers.


Participating restaurants will be featuring special offers in preset price tiers to help you choose exactly what you are looking for. Offers will vary depending on the establishment, but at these prices you’ll be able to check out more than just one restaurant! We invite you to come out and enjoy the special taste of a meal prepared just for you by a local chef or restaurateur. We’re sure once you taste these delicious meals you’re going to SAVOR local restaurants all year long!
