Litchfield Restaurant Week is here!

Sponsored by the Town of Litchfield Economic Development Commission, the second edition of Litchfield Restaurant Week launches Friday, March 22, and continues through Friday, March 29.

Our RW, featuring roughly 20 destinations, offers a more variety than many restaurant weeks in Connecticut by also including bakery-cafes, delis, pizza places, and gourmet shops.

That means in addition to enjoying 3-course prix fixe menus in the town’s award-winning restaurants, you can also take advantage of other creative multi-course options – like locally-roasted coffee beans, a coffee drink, and a savory or sweet treat from Krafted Brew Lab, or a grinder, chips, a cookie, and a soda from Petraroia Deli.

All the menus are posted on the official Litchfield Restaurant Week page on the Visit Litchfield CT website, so head there to make your dining plans.

Each venue offers a prix fixe menu at $25, $35, or $45, some for lunch/during the day, others for dinner, some for both lunch and dinner, and some for takeout.

In addition to variety, Litchfield Restaurant Week has star power.

Materia Ristorante is among the 2024 participants and its Chef David DiStasi was named Connecticut’s Chef of the Year for 2023 by the Connecticut Restaurant Association. Materia also won the Restaurant of the Year Award for Litchfield County in the restaurant association’s CRAZIES Awards, as well as a 2024 Overall Excellence award from Connecticut Magazine’s dining experts.

Many other participants also earned top awards from the CT Mag dining experts, including Best Traditional American for The Village Restaurant, and Best New American for West Street Grill and At the Corner – which also won a Best Beer List award. Petraroia Deli won for Best Deli/Sandwich Shop, and Meraki for  Best Lunch, Hidden Gem, and Best Deli/Sandwich Shop.
