FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

Restaurant week wrapped up yesterday, as 19 food places took part in the 5 day event. Many of the businesses offered new menu items, special deals, and entertainment. Guests could fill out a passport, trying to make it to the most stops.

"they're saying you know, we stopped here and tried to fill our passports for the week, so it was good to get people out to see what we have to offer in Flint," said Amanda Alexander of the Flint Crepe Company. 

The Flint Crepe Company was bustling with hungry customers morning, as it came down from a rush of extra business the week.

"It was very good, we had pretty steady business. It was good to see people come downtown that were coming just for the event," said Alexander.

Many Flint businesses have hit a hard blow as the Water Crisis draws customers away from Flint. This event aimed to bring them back, and show what downtown Flint has to offer. 

"Help us to all understand yeah we're a hardworking town, there's a lot of people growing gardens and doing great things," said Alexander, "Hey, this is a really positive vibe, the seats are full, it's a really positive vibe, and I want to come downtown more."
