I am grateful that the Economic Development Authority and the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce are partnering to share the story of Fairfax’s growing restaurant scene,” said City of Fairfax Economic Development Director Chris Bruno.
The City of Fairfax Economic Development Authority and the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce partnered to form the 2018 Restaurant Week Committee, a consortium working with consultants and the restaurant community to plan and carry out the event.
The committee’s goals are to solidify Fairfax City as a regional dining destination, to increase the number of diners each restaurant welcomes during this week, and to increase brand recognition for participating restaurants.
