Vendors served up free dishes during the 10th annual Queens Restaurant Week kickoff event at Queens Borough Hall on September 23.

As Queens Restaurant Week has officially begun, eatery owners are hoping more diners will gobble up deals being served throughout the borough.

The 10th annual promotion started Monday, September 30, and includes three-course dinners for $28 and three-course lunches for $14 at most participating Queens restaurants.

Ellen LaPerna, manager of Bourbon Street, said she has already seen a moderate amount of people take advantage of deals at the Bayside establishment.

“So far, so good,” she said.

This is Bourbon Street’s sixth year in the program, LaPerna said.

“People do come out and participate,” she said. “I think the community likes it. It’s just another reason for people to come out and try our food.”

Queens Restaurant Week ran until October 3 and will pick up again October 7 through 10.

Manager Colleen Bowerman of Austin’s Ale House & Trackside Café said her Kew Gardens eatery has participated in the promotion every year.

The restaurant typically sees a jump in diners during the extended second week, Bowerman said.

“We’re hoping it’ll pick up,” she said. “We’ll see how it goes.”

Dan Dolacinski, manager of CityRib in Jamaica, also has his fingers crossed.

This marks the barbecue joint’s first year participating after opening up this July.

“Every year, people like Restaurant Week,” he said. “We expect people to know we’re here in the community.”

Restaurant Week is presented by the Queens Tourism Council and is sponsored by Melrose Credit Union, jetBlue, Resorts World Casino New York City, Restaurant Depot, Tequila Sunrise of Bayside, The Queens Courier and The Best of the Boro.

The long list of participating restaurants, which features all sorts of Mexican, Cajun, Mediterranean and Asian cuisines, can be found at www.itsinqueens.com/restaurantweek/Queens/.
