Erie Restaurant Week returns for the third year; with 38 local restaurants, bars, and breweries participating in the event.

Both business owners, and customers are excited for the event's return.

"[I'm] excited to get to know new costumers, new people, and [for] people to hear about us," said Dina Csir, owner of Dina's Authentic Dominican Kitchen in the Flagship City Food Hall.

And others are excited to use restaurant week to experience different foods.

"You know, living in Erie in the winter, it's cold and we're always looking for something to do," said Elaine LaFuria, who was grabbing dinner with her family at the Flagship City Food Hall. "Our son plays high school sports, so usually on sports nights, we either try to go out to eat, or go out to eat once on the weekends."

VisitErie organizes the event.
