Downtown Greensboro, Inc. (DGI) has announced the return of Downtown Restaurant Week, September 14-18. Along with a new title, Chow Downtown, this year’s restaurant week will also be revamped to better accommodate North Carolina’s Phase 2 Covid status.

“Restaurant week has always been a time for our downtown restaurants to offer great specials and I expect the re-imagined 2020 version to be no different,” said Stacy Calfo, DGI’s Director of Marketing. “With dine-in and takeout options available, there will be something for everyone. So skip cooking at home and enjoy great local fare from our center city.”

Chow Downtown will include varying weekly specials for both food and drinks. For those restaurants not offering dine-in right now, takeout options will enable their participation.

“Due to COVID, we have basically become an online business, instead of a brick and mortar one,” says Kathryn Hubert, owner of Chez Genèse. “Having an expanded reach and marketing offered to new audiences is hugely helpful as we continue to try to grow our modified model. We are grateful for the opportunities that Chow Downtown is presenting so that we can continue to operate curbside while still participating with the event.”
