More than 100 restaurants will offer specials as part of the sixth annual Connecticut Restaurant Week.
The event was started five years ago during the economic recession and has become a multi-billion dollar boom for the state.
Restaurants will be offering everything from multi-course fixed menus to two-for-one deals and specially priced bottles of wine. The multi-course meals will range from $20 to $30.
"The chance for all the customers to come and check out all the new places that they probably haven't been able to experience," said Orleando Versari, who is the assistant general manager at the Besito.
The 2013 Connecticut Restaurant Week runs from Monday through Sunday and features restaurants from all across the state.
Connecticut's restaurants are projected to register $6.1 billion in sales this year. In all, the restaurant industry accounts for 144,000 thousand jobs in the state, which is about 9 percent of the workforce.
"This actually opens up the doors to a variety of customers and come in and experience our food," Versari said.
