Haverhill foodies take note: The city’s first-ever Restaurant Week is taking place from August 17-26.

Made possible by the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce in partnership with food blogger Gerald Schiavoni, the weeklong celebration plans to highlight the city’s best coffee shops, pizza joints and local pubs, among other local haunts.

“Haverhill has the best restaurant zone north of the North End and I’m thrilled to work with the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce to promote Restaurant Week in Haverhill,” Mayor James J. Fiorentini said. “I have wanted to do a Restaurant Week in Haverhill for years, so I’m excited the Haverhill Chamber is going to take this on.”

Participating restaurants will be announced at a later date.
