The Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GPHCC) has announced the fifth edition of Dine Latino Restaurant Week, taking place between September 19-23, 2022.
The Dine Latino initiative, which was launched in 2020 amid the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, has since become a staple in the Philadelphia culinary scene each spring and fall to help support the growth of Latino-owned restaurants throughout the region.
Through access to resources, expert advice, networks, and education opportunities, various Latino-owned restaurants have been able to cultivate new paths to opportunities within Philadelphia’s culinary industry since the start of the initiative.
This year, 12 new restaurants will be added to its impressive list of participating restaurants, representing regions from Mexico to Colombia to Puerto Rico to Venezuela, and several others.
“As we look forward to our fifth Latino Restaurant Week, the goal remains that of elevating the profile of Latino-owned restaurants in the region,” said Jennifer Rodriguez, President of the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, in a statement.
“We want to introduce the public to the excellence and variety of food experiences available locally and invite area residents to join us in a celebration of exciting cuisine, culture, and warm hospitality,” she continued.
Participating restaurants will provide varying services to customers during the week, including takeout and delivery options. However, the common offer is one complimentary appetizer or dessert with the purchase of two dinner entrees.
