“We are encouraging everyone to visit the variety of great restaurants located within Batavia,” said Margaret Perreault, president and CEO of the Batavia Chamber of Commerce. “The goal is to also attract diners from other communities to Batavia, along with Batavians, to experience our wonderful restaurants.”

This year, the much-anticipated event is presented with a twist. The three sponsoring organizations have partnered with Both/and Pictures to create an individual commercial filmed on location of the participating restaurants. Nearly 30 Batavia restaurants joined the fun, and each will name its own deal. Some may offer discounts, while others may choose to name a prix-fixe menu or offer something free with purchase.

As they are completed, the promotional videos are added to the Restaurant Madness 2022 YouTube channel, where diners can subscribe and view each restaurant's promotion. Mention the unique promotion highlighted on their marketing video when you visit the restaurant during Restaurant Madness week.

The list of participating Batavia restaurants includes: Acquaviva Batavia, Batavia Creamery, Briana’s Pancake House, Bocaditos Café, Bulldog Nutrition, Bulldog Red Hots, Burrito Parrilla Mexicana, Charlie Fox’s Pizza, Crosstown Pub & Grill, Daddio’s Diner, Dimples Donuts, and Doc Watson’s Smokehouse.

Also, El Taco Grande, Enticing Cuisine, Fernando’s Street Kitchen, FlyLeaf Bakery, Gammon Coach House, Haylie B’s Bakery, Hot Pan Noodles & Dumplings, Limestone Coffee & Tea, Oak + Swine, Pal Joey’s Restaurant, Riverside Pizza & Pub, Rosati’s Pizza, Swordfish, Taco Urbano, Tribella Grill, and WindMill Grille & Pizzeria.
