Do you eat food? Are you ballin’ on a budget? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then the 13th annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week is the event for you. Southwest: The Magazine recently named Sacramento the “next great American food city,” and for 10 days, you will have the opportunity to consume greatness. From Jan. 12–21, more than 30 of Downtown Sacramento’s finest restaurants will offer you the chance to taste a three-course prix fixe meal for only $35! But, that isn’t the only great news—$1 from every Dine Downtown meal will be donated to social services and food literacy programs in Sacramento. That means that you get to eat amazing food and also contribute to the betterment of the Sacramento community! It is literally the best of both worlds. Some of the amazing restaurants participating (and giving back) are Empress Tavern, Dawson’s Steakhouse, Esquire Grill, The Porch Restaurant and Bar, Biba Restaurant, Frank Fat’s (a personal favorite of mine), Ella Dining Room and Bar, La Cosecha and many more! You can reserve your spots online by visiting Godowntownsac.com, where you can also get more information about the event itself. Grab your forks and dig in!
