BN Restaurant Week


Welcome to BN Bites & Brews
Bloomington-Normal Area’s Restaurant Week 2021!

We are excited to spend this week uplifting and supporting our local restaurant owners, cooks, and servers. We have culinary options that will suit every taste – from burgers and beers to salads and sushi. Join us in this opportunity to help our local businesses and enjoy some delicious food while doing it!

BN Bites & Brews will be a ten-day celebration of local food where you can discover our prized culinary scene. Whether you’re planning a night out on the town or a cozy night in, two things are guaranteed: your cravings will be satisfied and you won’t go hungry. Also, a great way to catch up with loved ones and old friends is over a meal.

We’ve asked our participating restaurants to create offers that will allow everyone to participate safely.  These offers vary at each restaurant, but will include:

  • Discount: a percentage off entire purchase, lower priced items, or other types of discounts
  • Special Menu Item: a limited item, a new item, or a variation of an item from their typical menu
  • Meal Package: a full meal that is bundled for either 2 or 4 people


Restaurant Week deals are available at each restaurant’s listing below. Start planning now so you can show your love and support for the local restaurants that make our community a great place to be!
