ROSWELL, Ga. — Looking to try a new restaurant? Want to find a new favorite place to eat out with friends?

Roswell Restaurant Week returns in 2021 for a seventh year. But like everything over the last 10 months, it’s a bit different because of COVID-19. The promotion, which ordinarily lasts ten days, will last several weeks, running from Jan. 11 – Feb. 11.

“Restaurants and food and beverage providers make up a segment of the hospitality industry hit the hardest during the pandemic. Facing continuous COVID-related hurdles and colder months, our restaurant partners remain reliant on support that is critical at the local level. Most have made investments that include expanded patio space, tenting, fire pits and electric or gas heaters to offer a pleasant dining experience,” says Andy Williams, Executive Director at Visit Roswell.
