LITTLE FALLS, N.Y. - Over a dozen local restaurants are participating in the first Restaurant Week in Little Falls.

Local restaurant owners and residents of Little Falls say this is what the area needs to bring more people into the community.

"It generates wonderful business for the community which we desperately need," Frank Cuda, longtime resident of Little Falls said.

From family style, to casual dining, and fine dining, Restaurant Week has a little bit of everything for everyone.

Restaurant Week is all apart of Think Local, which is an initiative focused on shining a light on locally owned business and showcasing what Little Falls has to offer.

"The opportunity to have an investment made to get more people into the community and see the different businesses and things that are here is nothing but good," Niel Rosenbaum, owner of Canal Side Inn said.

This event kicked off Wednesday and restaurant owners say since the event started, business has been great.

"We've been basically doubling our business over a normal week during Restaurant Week, so we're excited about that," Rosenbaum said.

One of the owners of Italian Feast, Steve Munger, says they have had a lot of business too.

"It's been real busy, it just helps bring in and promote business," Munger said. "We're a local restaurant, we want to get new people in, give people a chance, give them a deal."

Restaurant Week is not just about the local businesses, it's also about the people in the community.

"The more I think the local organizations do to sort of promote the area and get people in, you know, we're excited about."

Most people in the area, along with the business owners say they'd love to see Restaurant Week happen more often in Little Falls.

"Anything that we can do to develop this community and other upstate communities," Cuda said.

Michele Burton, the assistant manager of Travelodge, says this event has been a success, thanks to the community.

“We’ve done very well this week," Burton said. "We have a great community and people that don’t usually go out, are going out and trying these different places and it’s really working out well.”

The restaurants participating in Restaurant Week are Ann Street Deli, Bonita's Sandwich Chef, II Cafe, The Cafe at the Stone Mill, That Little Place on Main, Ed's Pizza Place, Italian Feast, Copper Moose Ale House, Ruggiero's Trattoria, Travelodge, Beardslee Castle, Bella Vista, and Canal Side Inn.
