WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
All participating restaurants will be prominently featured on SeafoodRI.com and across multiple social media channels affiliated with the RI Seafood Collaborative. Participants may also be included in media coverage of the event. Participants will also receive a high-quality logo to incorporate on their menu and for promotional use.
Participants will be invited to join state leaders, local fishers, fellow restauranteurs and other industry representatives at a Quahog Week kick-off press event. This event will recognize the economic and cultural impact of this fishery and promote local market opportunities.
WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
Our local food system supports more than 60,000 jobs and is a key driver in attracting tourism to the Ocean State. As quahogs are plentiful in Narragansett Bay year-round, they are perfect ingredients in myriad seasonal recipes including stuffies, hearty chowders, soups, various pasta dishes and more.
Let’s work together to spread awareness of Rhode Island’s bounty and the talented chefs who prepare the quahog in so many savory ways.
