Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Due to last week's blizzard, two Duluth restaurants decided to extend the annual Spring Eat Downtown Promotion.

Both Grandma's Saloon & Grill and Bellisio's Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar will feature three-course lunch and dinner discount menus all week.

Brian Daughtery, President of Grandma's Restaurants says extending the culinary experience is a great way to get locals to try new items before the tourism season starts.

"Our local clientele is our best ambassadors,” Daugherty said. “Local, happy customers mean great recommendations for us down the road."

Meanwhile, the recent snow has left the $1 million renovation of Grandma's Saloon and Grill behind schedule, by two weeks.

A larger entrance, an expanded gift shop and a rooftop lounge, are now expected to be completed by mid-May.
