EAT CARIBBEAN 2022 Guidelines

Here are some tips to help you have a successful Eat Caribbean New York Caribbean Restaurant Week 2022 experience. Suggestions for menu format, updating your staff and using this opportunity to promote your restaurant.

EAT CARIBBEAN Recommendation

  • Always present the Eat Caribbean Week menu with your standard menu or have it visible as a table tent or in a prominent position in your menu folder.
  • For dine-in restaurants, consider providing three options for each of three courses, i.e. three appetizers, three entrees and three desserts.
  • Take-out restaurants should provide an Eat Caribbean menu of specials.
  • If Beverage, tax and gratuities are not included in the price, it should be noted on the menu.
  • Your menu will leave an impression on guests, including first time patrons. Menu items should be representative of your restaurant in portion size and quality.
  • Consider including a vegetarian option for wider appeal.
  • Offer a special, fixed-price, three-course dinner or lunch menu. If you are a take-out restaurant, special offers should be posted next to the menu.
  • Provide phonetic pronunciation for unfamiliar dishes e.g. for callaloo (KAL-A-LOO)
  • Provide descriptions of the dish, ingredients, and cooking method to interest patrons.

Inform Staff

  • Ensure your entire staff is familiar with the facts about Eat Caribbean – the duration of the event, the menu prices and the types of dishes on offer.
  • Staff should be familiar with the specials, and know if they apply to lunch, dinner or both.
  • Explain ingredients, cooking methods of the special dishes to staff. Have them taste the special Eat Caribbean dishes to enable them to relay this information to patrons.


  • Expect an unusually high volume of calls for reservations during Eat Caribbean week. Be prepared with days and hours of participation (June 19th-25th), and pricing.
  • Avoid confusion and disappointment, ensure all reservations are informed of any menu exclusion in effect during Eat Caribbean week.

Promoting EAT CARIBBEAN 2022 To Your Clientele

  • Email your Eat Caribbean menu to by June 1, 2022 for promotion on our website and social media. Include the name of your restaurant in the subject line of the email.
  • Put up Eat Caribbean posters. Use your mailing lists to inform your patrons of your participation in CRWNY.
  • “Like” Eat Caribbean & Wiadca on facebook and instagram. This helps us promote your restaurant.
  • Upload photos of your Eat Caribbean menu items to your social media (Instagram) with @EatCaribbeanNYC @NewYorkCarnival and #EatCaribbeanNYC
