Bucks County Restaurant Week begins Sunday, and more than 70 restaurants are offering special deals to entice patrons through Saturday, May 4. Each local eatery will have a $25 or $35 prix fixe three course meal so they can show nearby residents what they’re made of.

A full list of participating restaurants and their menus is available here.

Visit Bucks County Vice President Paul Bencivengo joined WBCB 1490 AM this week to discuss all things Bucks County, including Restaurant Week. Bencivengo will assume the role of President on Jul. 1, and really wants to promote Bucks County.

“This is only Bucks County’s second annual Restaurant Week, so awareness is still building,” Bencivengo said. “Last year was really popular. The more popular it becomes, the more restaurants will participate. It helps promote our great area.

“Everybody knows somebody who has a friend or child working at our restaurants,” Bencivengo said told Mike Schiller of the Galzerano Funeral Home show. “You name a town, there’s a restaurant participating in Restaurant Week.”

Some restaurants are using the opportunity to make donations toward Bucks Knocks Out Hunger. United Way Bucks manages the program, which uses 100 percent of its proceeds for county food pantries.

More information about this collaborative project is available on the Visit Bucks County website here. Bencivengo also urged anyone with questions to call the Visit Bucks County Tourism Office at 215-639-0300.

People are encouraged to make reservations with Open Table.
