About Us

MRW was started in 2008 to celebrate Maine's chefs and bartenders and to boost restaurant business during winter, when it is needed most. Though much has changed over nine years, the team leading MRW remains dedicated to collaboration and contributing to Maine's thriving culinary community. 

During MRW, customers dine out in force at participating restaurants. Dining on specially priced multi-course menus feels downright decadent. Also customers join in great events to sample and interact with brands, meet the experts and discover more places to eat and drink.
As a for-profit business, we look for opportunities annually to align with important local organizations. To date MRW has donated more than $66,000 to Preble Street, United Way, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Maine and others.
MRW is proud to partner with these great Maine brands: L.L. Bean Visa Card, Down East Magazine, WBLM / WHOM / WCYY / WJBQ, MEMIC, Shipyard Brewing Company, Portland Press Herald, Coffee By Design, Native Maine Produce. To add your brand to this great roster call (207) 450-1385. 
Maine Restaurant Week was recently recognized by LUX Magazine as the Best Restaurant Promotional Event-2016 US, in their 2016 Hospitality Awards issue. (Learn more)
A sincere thank you to the thousands of customers, industry members and sponsors from Maine and beyond who joined together to make a positive impact on our culinary community.
We hope to see you again during March 2017!
