Restaurant Week: Meet the Culinary Artists of Mt Vernon AaronIn Mount Vernon and Lisbon, 18 restaurants are participating in restaurant week and offering specials during this statewide event. Local volunteers created a “Meet the Culinary Artists of Mount Vernon and Lisbon” campaign that includes a Restaurant Passport challenging diners to eat at as many of the 18 participating restaurants as possible during the 10-day event.  Each person who eats at 5 of the 18 restaurants can turn in the passport to any participating restaurant to enter a drawing for a two-night stay in Mount Vernon courtesy of Sleep Inn & Suites (subject to availability).

“We have known for a long time that our restaurants each offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience,” said Joe Jennison, Director of Main Street and Marketing for the CDG. “Restaurant Week offers a showcase to highlight them all. And we are inviting the entire state to come and meet the Culinary Artists of Mount Vernon and Lisbon!”
