BILOXI, Miss. (September 1, 2016) – September will mark the official launch of Mississippi Gulf Coast Restaurant Month. From Sept. 1-30, locals and visitors will have a unique opportunity to enjoy special fixed price menus at Beau Rivage and other Mississippi Gulf Coast restaurants with $1 from each special menu meal sold going to two local charities.
Popular restaurants, award-winning chefs and talented wine professionals team up to support Extra Table, a non-profit organization that supplies healthy food in bulk to local food pantries and soup kitchens, and Café Climb, a teaching café for at-risk youth. The month-long event will present incredible dining options with special lunch and dinner menus in four pricing tiers: 1 Fork (under $20), 2 Forks ($20-$29), 3 Forks ($30-$39) and 4 Forks ($40+). Wine pairing options will also be available.
“Mississippi Gulf Coast Restaurant Month is part of Hunger Action Month, Feeding America's campaign to motivate local communities to take action to fight hunger,” said Beau Rivage Vice President of Hotel and Food and Beverage Operations Jeff Segan. “By raising awareness and donations, Beau Rivage and other area restaurants will make a difference on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.”
