South Africans have responded so well to the call to support their local restaurants during Restaurant Week… that it’s actually been extended now until 14 November!
Restaurant Week provides patrons with special foodie deals and experiences at some of South Africa’s firm favourites.
SA’s hospitality association, FEDHASA, said it thanks South Africans for their “incredible support” over the past 18 months, which has helped the industry survive.
Rosemary Anderson, FEDHASA National Chairperson, said: “Times have been tough and for an exceptionally long time our ability to enjoy a meal has been restricted. It’s been heart-breaking to see favourite eateries close and chefs and waiters losing their livelihoods as a result. Restaurant Week serves as a reminder to those of us with the means to eat out, that by doing so we directly help to keep these restaurants and jobs alive.”
She urged diners to adhere to health protocols to ensure restaurants get to keep their doors open.
The hospitality industry has been amongst those industries hardest hit throughout COVID,
says Anderson. “For now, the answer is to ensure the survival of our restaurants and lessen
further economic losses and job cuts. Don’t cook tonight, go out,” says Anderson.
