Salem Fall Restaurant Week

Salem's restaurant scene goes far beyond the waterfront seafood restaurants with everything from Neapolitan pizza to a Mexican taqueria (and of course, still plenty of seafood to go round). While October is Salem's busiest season with its celebration of all things haunted, after Halloween passes, the quieter season is a nice time to visit too. Salem's outstanding restaurants become easier to get into and the sidewalks and tourist attractions are less crowded. Coming right up in early December, Salem Fall Restaurant Week is the perfect opportunity to explore the food and drink scene in Salem. Book a room at one of our two Salem boutique hotels The Merchant and The Hotel Salem and enjoy Salem Fall Restaurant Week December 3rd-7th. Bonus: many of the participating restaurants are within walking distance of our two boutique hotels, meaning you're only a short stroll away from a good meal!

Restaurant Weeks are a well-known concept, but for the uninitiated: participating Salem restaurants are offering specially priced menus during Restaurant Week. Some offer choices of appetizer, entrees, and dessert while others have set menus. Typically the menus are less expensive than if you were to order a three-course meal outside of Restaurant Week, giving diners the chance to try out a new restaurant. Lark favorites participating in Salem Fall Restaurant Week include the seafood classic Adriatic Restaurant and Bar, East-meets-West at Opus, and Korean fried chicken hotspot BonChon.

For foodies, Restaurant Weeks are like Christmas and the Super Bowl all rolled into one. Eleven Salem restaurants are participating so far, with more to come before the event kicks off. Whether you're looking for Korean food or authentic Italian, Salem Fall Restaurant Week will serve up some delicious fall food in Witch City. Reservations recommended!
