Frankfort Elberta Feeding Frenzy

Restaurant Week June 7–13
By Lynda Wheatley | June 5, 2021

As if you needed another reason to visit two of the sweetest lil’ beach and bayside towns Up North in June. Nevertheless, Frankfort and Elberta are joining forces to lure you west with a full week’s worth of affordable introductions to their culinary virtuosity. A full 18 eateries are participating in the Frankfort Elberta Restaurant Week, which kicks off  Monday, June 7, and doesn’t end until Sunday, June 13. That might be enough time to try an Italian dinner at the new Vita Bella, some outstanding Asian fusion at The Fusion, legit mitzva sammies at L’Chayim Delicatessen, and oodles of delicious eats available at local institutions like The Cabbage Shed, The Hotel Frankfort, Mayfair Tavern, and more. The timeline isn’t the only thing making eating out all week easy: The participating restaurants are offering their restaurant week specials — many of which are three-course meals — at fixed price points of $15 or $25.
