There's only a few days left to take advantage of a dining deal that goes toward a good cause.

The last day of Naples Restaurant Week is June 14th. The event offers more than 40 restaurants with three course meals for $35.

"It really gives customers around town that haven't experienced the restaurant, it draws them in," David Verbruggen, the Managing Partner of Ridgway Bar & Grill in Naples.

Ridgway's Restaurant Week menu includes smoked mullet as a first course, a longbone pork chop in an apple demi glaze as a second course, and a light chocolate souffle or apple gallette for dessert.

"You're part of our family when you come dine with us," Verbruggen said.

Bayside Seafood Bar & Grill is also participating in Naples Restaurant Week. They're located right on the Venetian Bay.

"People come for the food and the view," John Everding, the managing partner, said.

Their Restaurant Week menu includes crispy calamari as an appetizer, miso salmon for an entree, and key lime tart for dessert.

Everding said one of his favorite parts of Restaurant Week is knowing a portion of the money made goes toward the Humane Society of Naples.

Everding and Verbruggen said both their restaurants are seeing a boom in business during Restaurant Week.
