New Good Eat$ Downtown Campaign Supports Restaurants, Provides 25% Off Tuesdays & Wednesdays

Thursday, March 4, 2021

Get ready to support and save (at) the restaurants you love: Good Eat$ Downtown, our newest campaign to support the locally-owned businesses that make our neighborhoods so special, enjoy 25% off your food and drinks on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at participating restaurants beginning March 9.

The offer applies to dine-in, take-out, and delivery orders from participating restaurants. Visit the campaign webpage for full details.

Fresh on the heels of our successful Spread the Love campaign that promoted $100 in vouchers for those purchasing an overnight stay at Downtown hotels during February, the new campaign is the latest support initiative developed via funding from a Richard King Mellon Foundation COVID-19 relief grant the PDP received at the end of 2020.

26 restaurants have committed to participating in the campaign, offering the community a broad selection of food and fare sure to please every palate for either lunch, dinner, or both, throughout the month of March.

“This 25% incentive gives both our new and regular customers another great reason to dine Downtown,” said Michael Zawojski, Executive Chef/Director of Food and Beverage at Revel, a restaurant offering locally-driven, seasonal cuisine near Market Square.

“The extra push, on our slower days especially, will give us a chance to introduce Revel’s menu to new guests and allow returning guests to try our newest menu items. We love that food delivery is included in this program too, broadening our reach outside of the immediate Downtown community. We are proud to be featured alongside some really incredible Downtown restaurants—and great ‘eats’!

As part of the campaign, we’re also planning to offer some surprise giveaways to diners each week, from restaurant gift cards, to free dinners, to bonus prize opportunities for posting on social media. Diners are encouraged to spread the word of their favorite restaurants by sharing photos with #GoodEatsDowntown and @DowntownPitt.

“This campaign allows us to significantly impact the bottom-line in a new way. We’re providing an opportunity for these Downtown restaurants to offer a 25% off discount which we then pay back. We hope that this incentive really motivates folks to dine-in, pick-up, or order for delivery from the restaurants we know they love,” said Jeremy Waldrup, President and CEO of the PDP. “There’s really no downside to getting great food at a discount and helping out these small businesses. Spread the word that Tuesday and Wednesday is a great day to dine Downtown!”

Good Eat$ Downtown is the latest part of the PDP’s ongoing restaurant recovery efforts which began back in November 2020, with the PDP purchasing meals through its Shelter Support Initiative and continued with the Downtown Community Takeout in partnership with 412 Rescue. The latter is expected to serve 63,000 meals over 6 months, and generate over $500,000 in economic impact to the restaurant community.
