Elmhurst residents will have the chance to experience the diversity of the neighborhood through their stomachs.

Councilman Danny Dromm announced yesterday that he would be sponsoring the “Eat Elmhurst Restaurant Week” from April 22 to 29 in an effort to stimulate the local economy, with restaurants throughout the area offering specials and discounts throughout the week.

“Eat Elmhurst Restaurant Week is a fun and innovative way to revitalize our local economy and lay the groundwork for continued growth,” Dromm said in a statement. “This initiative helps local merchants and is part of a greater, sustained effort to promote of the very best of what Elmhurst has to offer.”

As of yesterday, 23 restaurants representing East Asian, South America, South Asia, Southeast Asian and European cuisines had signed on to participate in the promotion, each offering a different discount or special, and more restaurants might sign on before the restaurant week launches.

The First American International Bank is also sponsoring the event. “What better way to promote small businesses and popularize cultural diversity among a community so close to FAIB’s heart than a week-long celebration of Elmhurst’s broad landscape of international cuisines,” said Garrett Michaels, Head of Marketing and Product Development for the First American International Bank.
