Beaufort kicks-off Restaurant Week

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The City of Beaufort is offering a taste of the Lowcountry with its annual restaurant week.

Friday was the first day of the nine-day long celebration of local cuisine and local business. Put on by the Chamber of Commerce, restaurant week is an opportunity for local eateries to show off their best dishes, and experiment with new ones, all while attracting new customers and keeping old ones satisfied.

"We love the local flare that Beaufort has that's one of the things that makes us the great authentic Lowcountry small town destination and restaurant week is a celebration of those restaurants that add to the culinary scene here," said Robb Wells, VP of Tourism, Beaufort Chamber of Commerce.

For a restaurant like Plum, which has been on the waterfront since 1986, it's a way to beat the fall slump.

"This is a slower time of year for us, August-September. People going back to school, it's a lot going on so this is an opportunity for us to remind folks that we're down here and give back a little, offer them specials, encourage folks to come try us or try something different," said Chip Dinkins, VP of operations at Plum, Inc.

Restaurant Week ends on Sept. 18.
