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 visit their Facebook page.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”

“Among other things, Vallarta Lifestyles stands out for its strong presence throughout our destination, from five stars hotels to brand new condominiums, where they finally find the type of clients that we look for. For all of us is very important to be in print media to strengthen our advertising strategy and this magazine is essential to achieve it.”
