Several restaurants will also offer pre-fixe lunch menus for $20. Participants include more than thirty of the best eateries in San Juan, Santurce, Condado, Miramar, Ocean Park, Isla Verde, Hato Rey, Guaynabo and Humacao.

“Puerto Rico Restaurant Week promotes sustainability and the local food industry, while supporting the economy of the island. This is especially exciting as local food providers continue increasing and improving their products for both restaurants and individual consumers.  Most menus include locally sourced greens, herbs, root vegetables, fruits, pumpkin, coconut, ginger, avocados, plantains, and artisanal longaniza and morcilla.

Not in Puerto Rico? Maybe it’s time to check out airfares in JetBlue and come down and enjoy these great offers. JetBlue’s flights arrive to multiple airports in the island, including San Juan International, Ponce, Aguadilla, Mayagüez and the offshore island of Vieques.

Puerto Rico Restaurant Week Returns June 1, 2016

“April 21, 2016 – San Juan, Puerto Rico – To the delight of top Puerto Rican chefs and diners, the annual Puerto Rico Restaurant Week is back for its fifth year. From June 1 to June 11, premier restaurants will offer specially designed three course dinner and/or lunch menus at a fixed price. These prix fixe menus are the cornerstone of the Restaurant Week concept. Enticed by affordable multiple course menus, patrons are encouraged to try new establishments and revisit old favorites.

Set at either $28 or $38 for dinner and $20 for lunch, the value is unbeatable. Beverages, tax, and tip are not included. There are no tickets for the event, but reservations are required and must be booked directly with participating restaurants.

For this fifth installment, co-founders Gustavo Antonetti and Paulina Salach are encouraging chefs to place an emphasis on inventiveness and as always, to source locally.

“Each year, we are reaching new customers, engaging with foodies, and pushing the envelope in terms of creativity. Our chefs have developed a friendly competition amongst themselves and the beneficiaries have been the patrons,” says Antonetti.

“We strongly believe in sustainability and encourage restaurants to create as many dishes as they can using local ingredients,” adds Salach. “Throughout the last few years we’ve seen restaurants working increasingly with local farmers. We want to foment and promote those relationships.”
