If you’re like most restaurant-goers, you’ve got a growing list of places you’ll be getting to sooner or later. How about sooner?
You can start with the ninth annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week, Jan. 8-17. That’s when a kitchenful of chefs from 26 downtown restaurants will prepare special three-course prix-fixe dinners for a flat rate of $31 (with some vegetarian options). That extra buck will be donated to the California Food Literacy Center, a nonprofit organization “dedicated to inspiring change in community food education.”
The 10 days of bargain-priced dining is sponsored by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. Its director, Michael Ault, noted, “We estimate that Dine Downtown generates over $1 million in restaurant sales and parking revenue in just 10 days. The event provides local restaurants a huge boost at the start of the new year.”
Among the participating restaurants will be Ella, The Firehouse, Foundation, Hock Farm Craft & Provisions, River City Brewing Company and Tuli Bistro.
