Dinner for 2, on a budget

January 22, 2009 —

There’s an article in today’s Des Moines Register showing 10 tabs at local restaurants – each offers a meal for 2 at less than $50 (sometimes less than $40). They include 2 entrees, 2 drinks & tip. The list shows a variety of types of restaurants. Check it out! From the list, I’ve got some places to try. I can highly recommend Thai Flavors, Firkin & Fox (now closed), Star Bar & Court Avenue Brewing. YUM! (SIDE NOTE: let this be a reminder – do you need to make special ‘for 2’ plans for Valentine’s Day??)

Also in today’s entertainment section was a feature on Manhattan Deli. This place has been around forever and is in walking distance from DMU. This is old-school deli goodness, folks. Try it out!
