Downtown Dining Week

October 28 - November 8


A Recipe for Recovery

For more than 20 years, the DBA has worked tirelessly to put Downtown on the map as Edmonton’s premier dining destination and Edmontonians have been on this amazing journey step by step.

Having spent months discussing options on how to support the Downtown restaurant community, we are beyond delighted to relaunch Downtown Dining Week this fall. This will be the most important year ever for the success of this annual dining celebration. Most of our participating restaurateurs run small owner-operated restaurants hit hard by the pandemic that really could use your support and love after several difficult months.

We know that Downtown Dining Week can make a positive impact on our community and get our restaurants back to where they need to be. We know that Downtown Dining Week can reignite hope in Downtown’s hospitality scene. We know that this can be one ingredient in our recipe for recovery.

As always, we want Downtown Dining Week to be a platform to showcase the best of Edmonton’s dining scene, but this year there will be a strong focus on dining safely. Participating restaurants will strictly adhere to AHS guidelines for restaurants and bars, as they have been doing since reopening. Each restaurant will receive a safety kit that includes extra hand sanitization for guests, masks for servers and signage for their establishments. We’ll also be providing QR codes for restaurants to reduce the use of menus used by patrons. 

We have all come together in unanimous support of these steps and we’re all working hard behind the scenes to program a safe dining week. We thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you dining in our Downtown restaurants soon. 

Participating restaurants and menus will be posted Thursday, October 15. Check back frequently as news menus will be posted daily.
