Florios Restaurant & Bar Joins Restaurant WeekAugust 02, 2016 / News
Florios Restaurant & Bar just became the first new restaurant to sign up for Vallarta Lifestyles’s Restaurant Week, 2017 edition. Despite the fact that the highly-anticipated anual culinary event will not take place for another ten months, the Italian-Argentinean eatery is eager to take advantage of the new promotional benefits recently introduced by Restaurant Week through its new website and Foodie Report, the new, monthly newsletter delivered free of charge of Vallarta foodies looking for special promotions.
“We’ve been aware of the success Restaurant Week has had through the years,” commented Alan Yamil, who oversees Florios’ promotional and advertising efforts. “When we learned that new restaurants can sign up for Restaurant Week now to take advantage of Foodie Report, we jumped at the opportunity. We plan to complement our social media strategy with the promotions delivered through the monthly newsletter. By targeting tourists and locals that enjoy fine dining, we hope they will visit Florios to discover what makes it a truly special restaurant in Puerto Vallarta’s El Centro.”
Florios is fortunate to have opened its doors some four years ago at a building that once was the home of Puerto Vallarta’s first mayor, Jesús Langarica, back in 1918. “It is a traditional vallartense home with lots of tradition. Most of the structure is intact, so we are honored to be located here,” explained owner, Miguel Valenzuela, who hails from Cordoba, a province in Argentina. The restaurant offers a delicious combination of traditional Italian and Argentinean dishes, many of which are prepared in a unique, exposed brick oven. “All our breads are made here as well,” commented chef Hugo Chavez. In addition, Florios features special themed nights every Friday that combine special menus with related live entertainment, providing guests a variety culinary and visual experiences in a friendly, casual atmosphere.
Florios Restaurant & Bar is located at Galeana 185 in Puerto Vallarta’s El Centro neighborhood. For more information, please click here.
