From Dec. 2-15, Southwest Floridians get to experience a variety of restaurants at a discounted price from Marco Island to Cape Coral. The Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week also donates $1 from every Restaurant Week meal sold to the Sizzle SWFL FGCU Food & Beverage Scholarship. You can eat like a king or queen, and it benefits a great cause. It’s the best of both worlds.
The semi-annual, charity-driven Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week gives both visitors and locals a chance to try all the restaurants on their wish list, and to visit places that may be new to them. Restaurants from Collier to Lee County will offer a two-course lunch and/or a three-course dinner with fixed price menus. Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week celebrates the concept of dining out for an affordable price, and one of its goals is to raise awareness and make a positive impact on Southwest Florida’s varied culinary community.
There are so many original restaurants offering delicious food in Southwest Florida. Restaurant Week wants to showcase them so everyone has a chance to discover and enjoy a great meal. Sizzle SWFL Restaurant Week’s goal is to strengthen Southwest Florida’s brand and culinary reputation. Local businesses feel the effects of restaurant week, too. Participating restaurants order more supplies, have more people working and see increased traffic and business. Combine that with the uptick in business for hotels, entertainment, shopping centers, and other local businesses, and nearly everyone in the local food and hospitality sectors feel the benefits from the impact of tourism dollars spent across Southwest Florida during restaurant week.
A dollar from every restaurant week meal benefits the Sizzle SWFL FGCU Food & Beverage Scholarship. It will be used to help teach and fund the next generation of local chefs, directors, supervisors, servers, caterers, managers and concierges.
Last year, over 60,000 Restaurant Week meals were sold and participating restaurants donated more than $20,000 to the Sizzle SWFL FGCU Food & Beverage Scholarship. This scholarship helps local restaurants find and hire more qualified staff members.
We have a diverse selection of rental properties throughout Southwest Florida, from Naples to Cape Coral to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. The good thing about all of the cities participating in restaurant week is they are not far from each other, if you’d like to venture out and try several new options. Estero and Bonita Springs are more centrally located. They are less than an hour north of Naples and downtown Naples, and less than an hour south of Fort Myers and Cape Coral. If you’d rather stick to one municipality, you have plenty of choices in each city.
