How do you kick off Utica Restaurant Week? Ribbon cutting? No. Ground breaking? No.

You have a sandwich biting.

Utica city officials and event organizers bit into a wrap from Utica Restaurant Week participant Bagg's Square Cafe Friday morning at City Hall, to officially kick off Restaurant Week. It's a chance for restaurants to offer creative specials and deals, in order to attract new customers and encourage repeat customers to try something new.

"If there’s one thing Utica, New York is known for... it’s our FOOD," the Restaurant Week webpage reads.

"So, Restaurant Week we invite all of the restaurants that are participating to put together a special menu that is available for that week only, so we give them creative freedom to put together whatever they like," said Restaurant Week co-chair Michelle McCarrick Truett. "A lot of them are doing three-course dinner, so it has appetizer, entrée and dessert for a set price. Other ones, especially our lunch items, are doing like $5 sandwiches and they are all different."

There are 40 restaurants participating in the event. Restaurant week runs Friday, June 8 through Sunday, June 17.
