Everyone loves dining Downtown, but sometimes sticker shock limits visits even to a favorite eatery. Today, all that will change (for seven days only) with the seventh annual Downtown Dining Week.
Restaurants like Joey Buona's, Capitol Grille, Karl Ratzsch's and Zarletti's make up the 41 venues that will offer some seriously sizzling deals June 7-14.
Those that regularly open earlier are offering a three-course prix fixe lunch for $10. All of the restaurants are serving three-course prix fixe dinners for either $20 or $30.
Be prepared to deal with a crowd, though. During previous years, some participating restaurants have seen customer volume triple on certain days in dining week. In 2010, the promotion attracted more than 50,000 patrons.
