11/15/2015 - Restaurant Week Winners Announced; Public Encouraged to Take Survey

First Selectman Mike Tetreau announced today the top prize winners from among those who participated in the passport promotion in connection with the 4th annual Fairfield Restaurant Week, which was held October 11-17, 2015. A complete list of all winners can be found at www.fairfieldct.org/rw.

At the last Board of Selectmen’s meeting, First Selectman Mike Tetreau, Selectman Shelia Marmion and Selectman Kevin Kiley held a drawing to announce the following top two prize recipients: Olga Voros of Fairfield, who won the fabulous grand prize package that includes one night’s stay, deluxe accommodations, at the Delamar Southport, plus dinner for two at the acclaimed Artisan Restaurant, and a 60 minute couple’s massage; and Rosanne Young of Fairfield, who won dinner for four at The Grey Goose Restaurant located in Southport. A complete list of winners can be found at www.fairfieldct.org/rw.

Alongside the passport promotion, the Town of Fairfield ran a simultaneous social media campaign on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, for patrons who posted a photo of them enjoying a dish at one of the participating restaurants and included the hashtag #FairfieldRestaurantWeek in the caption. The top two prize winners were Marie Genest of Milford, who won a stay package at the Fairfield Circle Inn and John Kuhn of Fairfield, who won a $50 gift certificate to b.good Restaurant.

The Town’s Community and Economic Development Department, which has spearheaded this event and similar retail-based initiatives, is asking community members to fill out a post event survey by going to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FairfieldRW2015. The Department is offering a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Crave Bar & Grill for those who complete the online survey by 12:00 noon on Monday, November 23rd. The survey is intended to get the public’s feedback on their dining out experience in Fairfield during Restaurant Week.

First Selectman Tetreau said, “I wanted to thank everyone who helped make our 4th annual Fairfield Restaurant Week a rousing success. Fairfield Restaurant Week has quickly become something of a tradition…something to look forward to each year…and each year, it seems to get better and better. We had a record 41 Fairfield restaurants participating this year. And, the word is out that Fairfield is the “in” place for dining. I want to thank our many fine restaurants and businesses for participating.”

Community and Economic Development Director Mark Barnhart said, “I especially want to thank our primary sponsor, Bankwell, and our many prize contributors, especially our grand and special prize contributors, Delamar Southport, Artisan Restaurant, the Spa at the Delamar and the Gray Goose Restaurant. We want to continue to grow this event, and make it even better, and so we’d love to hear from the public through the online survey.”
