Dine Sheffield is based on the first Restaurant Week carried out in New York, and aims to encourage several thousand new diners to experience the city centre’s incredible dining choices at an extraordinary value.
It will take place from September 21 to 28, and some 50 restaurants have signed up to offer menus from £5 to £15 per person.
Diane Jarvis, from Sheffield BID which is organising the initiative as part of its Alive After Five strategy, said: “Sheffield city centre has a strong food offer comprising big names and independent venues.

“Dine Sheffield is part of our strategy to develop the early evening economy. It provides a collaborative platform to showcase our great-range of eateries and the diversity of the food and restaurant sector.”
The range of cuisines on offer during the week is vast, from sushi to barbecue and curry to burgers.
Adrian Bagnoli, co-owner of Cubana Tapas Bar and Restaurant and BID board member, said: “Alive After Five is about creating an early evening ambience and bringing an additional buzz into the city centre which people want to be part of.
“We’ve got such a highly regarded independent offering across the food and drink sector in Sheffield, it’s great to have an opportunity to work together to showcase the offer. I hope that Dine Sheffield will become a twice-yearly fixture on the Alive After Five calendar of events.”
