FONDA NY- Montgomery County Executive Matthew L. Ossenfort, the Montgomery County Business Development Center, and the Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce are proud to announce a county-wide restaurant week has been scheduled for May 9 through May 15.
The establishments were asked to design specials for the week. Some will offer a choice menu, while others have a week-long special.
“Some restaurants have a traditional choice menu, and others have one special for the week”, Director of Tourism Development Anne Boles said. “Please enjoy, as this is a perfect opportunity to explore the rich history of the county, take a walk on the Erie Canalway Trail, or visit a beautiful park. Then treat yourself to a great meal by a family owned and operated restaurant. We appreciate their participation, and wherever you go, it’s going to be a delicious week in Montgomery County!”
“We are excited to kick-off Restaurant Week and hope it provides a boost to our local establishments,” Montgomery County Executive Matthew L. Ossenfort said. “We are proud to showcase the local businesses which are the cornerstone of this community.”
Restaurant Week information will be available online, at visitmontgomerycountyny.com and on Visit Montgomery County NY and Montgomery County-NY social media pages. Please check back regularly for updates on menus and features on participating restaurants. A $100 prize will be available to customers who visit an establishment during restaurant week. Uploading a simple picture of a receipt and meal from one of the participating restaurants to the Montgomery County Tourism Facebook page will enter you in the drawing. Details will be announced on a later date.

Fulton Montgomery Regional Chamber of Commerce President Mark Kilmer said: “Restaurant weeks are very successful and greatly appreciated by all our participating restaurants. With many of our local businesses, particularly those in the hospitality industry, still reeling from the tremendous losses incurred during the extended closure period and the eventual customer reduction rules, the public support for this year’s event will be more crucial than ever for the survival of our neighborhood restaurants.”
