Restaurant Week in Newburyport 2023, Brine Oyster Bar

Newburyport is thrilled to host Restaurant Week 2023 from Sunday, March 12th through Sunday, March 26th, an amazing opportunity to experience exceptional food & drinks from top North Shore restaurants. Organized by the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, participating restaurants are featuring a selection of lunch and dinner prefix menus offering strong value with a range of price points. Reservations are highly recommended and we encourage folks to try at least a couple of new restaurants as you just might discover a new favorite place.

Menu Pricing Options:
Lunch Selections: $22, $26, $32
Dinner Selections: $36, $42, $46

Although this event is referred to as Restaurant Week, it is intentionally hosted for two full weeks giving folks plenty of time to make it to their favorite places and to experience a few new restaurants as well. Although most participating restaurants are located in Newburyport, this is a community wide event and we encourage folks to explore newer places such as such as sin•a•loa Tacos & Tequila in Salisbury Beach.

Restaurant week is the perfect reason to make plans with friends, or get out for an overdue date night. Reservations are not required but they are strongly encouraged for this very popular foodie event.
