Dig in – it’s Restaurant Week!

August 18, 2011 —

Restaurant Week 2011Thirty-six local restaurants are participating in the fourth annual Restaurant Week, Aug. 19-28. The metro area’s top chefs will create special fixed-price menus for the week; you’ll pay only $25 for two lunches or one three-course dinner. For the list of restaurants, head on over to DsM Magazine.

You’ll not only feast on some delish dishes, you’ll have the chance to win a grand-prize trip for two to California’s Sonoma County. The getaway includes a three-night stay, up to $400 each for two airline tickets, tasting passes to Sonoma County wineries, and gift certificates to two restaurants there. Diners who submit a minimum of four Restaurant Week receipts are eligible for the drawing.
