Port City Taste is southeastern North Carolina’s premier restaurant week, hosted by news source Port City Daily, in collaboration with its media partners and sister companies, Penguin 98.3 and The Dude 93.7.

Taking place over 10 days every winter, Port City Taste is a celebration of the best specials and prix-fixe menus from local eateries and drinkeries.

Port City Taste also hosts various special weeks throughout the year, such as Burger Week in late spring and Craft Cocktail Week and Taco Week in early fall. Local restaurants highlight unique food items or specialty cocktails to be enjoyed by diners for one week only.

Next up: Restaurant Week, slated to take place Feb. 23 – March 3.

Participants don’t need coupons, special passwords, or tickets. Just head to one of the listed businesses, ask for the special restaurant week menu and indulge.
