FLASHBACK: A group of diners at Melange Restaurant, Ariapita Avenue, Port of Spain  enjoying drinks as they wait for dinner to be served. 

Trinidad and Tobago Restaurant Week (TTRW) starts tomorrow.

There will be over 70 restaurants participating in the seventh annual event giving diners everywhere an opportunity to indulge and celebrate the best of what local restaurants have to offer.

The annual food festival is expected to run across both islands from September 20-29.

The indulgent food feast has seen significant growth in its short span going from 19 participating restaurants in its first year to 70 and counting.

The event is the brainchild of Shira Mohammed, who heads up the TTRW team.

To ensure patrons get the most out of their dining experience, the TTRW team has upped the ante with their new and improved app, ttrestaurants. This will allow users to view menus, locations, and offers of the participating restaurants.

TTRW team launched a previous app last year, but due to unforeseen technical issues it was discontinued.

They are reminding patrons not to download the old app, TTRW, but instead search for ttrestaurants in the App Store to take advantage of all the best deals for Trinidad and Tobago Restaurant Week.

To view menus go to TTRW’s website www.officialttrw.com or download the ttrestaurants app and follow Restaurant Week on Facebook for updates.
