Salem Restaurant Week™ is more than a celebration of Salem’s growing food scene, it gives restaurants a much-needed boost during a time when business often slows. Its economic impact is felt by the many businesses that provide goods and services to Salem’s vital restaurant industry; customers love it because the specially priced three-course menus offer value that feels downright decadent. Salem Restaurant Week’s value is lasting, many customers who try new restaurants because of the event return to dine again. This is being fed by the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce.
