New Rochelle is having a birthday party. Actually, the party’s already started, with festive vinyl banners hung throughout the city, a gala dinner dance at Glen Island Harbor Club and a fun kite day at Davenport Park.
Included in the year-long celebration is the city’s first Restaurant Week, called Dine 325, running from July 8 through 11.
Participating restaurants will offer special pre fixe menus with three courses, $25 per person. Aimed at highlighting the multicultural dining scene in New Rochelle, the week leads up to Bastille Day, which will be celebrated on Friday, July 12 and honors the city’s French Huguenot roots.
Alvin and Friends, a creole-style restaurant with a knock-your-socks-off catfish po’boy sandwich, is game with a menu that includes black bean soup, fried chicken served with macaroni and cheese and greens, or catfish with rice and black-eyed peas. The regular menu will also be available.
Please see below for a list of all twenty restaurants participating in the city’s first restaurant week. Happy birthday New Rochelle!
