Guyana Restaurant Week begins today! – Guyana Chronicle

Over the next 10 days, be sure to indulge in the tantalizing wines and scrumptious foods being served at several of Guyana’s high-end restaurants, because starting today, is the 13th edition of Guyana Restaurant Week (GRW), which was officially launched on Thursday at the reputable Hard Rock Café located in the MovieTowne Mall.

The international franchise is one of 22 high-end restaurants across Guyana that will be participating in the culinary tourism event which is slated to run from November 12 – 22.

The highly-anticipated activity will see these sophisticated bistros serving up some of their most tantalizing delicacies at standard and affordable prices.

This time around, the cost to enjoy a delectable lunch in an elegant setting was set at a standard low of $3,000, while dinners, which will comprise of a full three-course meal, was set at $5,000 – $6,000 per person, depending on the restaurant.

This year will see two newcomers to the list of participating establishments, namely Heliconia located at the Emerge Building on Robb and Camp Streets in Georgetown, and Taco Loco Mexican Restaurant, located on Durey Lane.

Officially declaring the activity open was Minister of Tourism, Industry and Commerce, Oneidge Walrond, who called on the restaurants to “up their ante” this year, as Guyana continues to develop and promote its tourism product.

Sharing anecdotes of her own recent trip to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, Walrond pointed to the fact that culinary tourism was an important component of the country’s outstanding marketing strategy, and that going forward, Guyana will have to adopt a similar approach.

“I want to underscore the importance of the culinary experience for an international tourism approach. Here in Guyana, we have been stressing ecotourism and adventure tourism. The culinary and the dining experience adds to the hospitality and value of the destination Guyana that we are promoting, so don’t think that your establishment doesn’t add value or doesn’t matter,” Walrond noted.

Also delivering remarks at the launch was Harrinand Persaud, President of the Tourism and Hospitality Association of Guyana (THAG), who thanked the event sponsors for coming on board with their continued support. He also hinted at some of the exciting things that patrons, including wine loves, can expect in the coming days from GRW.

This year’s sponsors include Republic Bank, along with wine importer, LEHR Incorporated, as well as Presidente Beer, and Guyana Undiscovered.

Nonetheless, as the launch wrapped up, attendees were treated to some of the wines and delicious foods that are likely to dominate this year’s GRW.
