Dine America : Americas Night Out For Gulf Seafood

By The New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau

NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 18, 2010 — /PRNewswire/ — On December 1st, more than 150 chefs and restaurants in cities across the country will participate in the first “AMERICA’S NIGHT OUT FOR GULF SEAFOOD” to promote the safety of Gulf seafood in light of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill earlier in the year.

All of the participating restaurants will be serving a special dish that includes either fish, oysters, shrimp or crabs from the Gulf of Mexico, which supplies nearly half of all the country’s seafood.

“AMERICA’S NIGHT OUT FOR GULF SEAFOOD” is intended to show that seafood from the Gulf of Mexico is safe to eat and is the most scrutinized and tested seafood in the entire world.

The special “night out” is also meant to honor the thousands of Americans and their families in the Gulf seafood industry who are now back to work, fishing the Gulf waters for the most succulent catches.
