I got hungry just writing this: Dine Downtown Restaurant Week is in full swing

Dine Downtown Restaurant Week 2012Have you checked out any of the featured restaurants for Dine Downtown Restaurant Week yet? Or do you have plans to (you should!)? There are 29 restaurants on the list and it’s almost impossible to pick. Luckily the “week” is actually 10 days, so you have some extra time to test out more Downtown Sacramento dining spots. Through next Wednesday, January 18, Downtown Sacramento’s top restaurants are offering special three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for only $30 per person. This is a great opportunity to get a taste of restaurants that may otherwise be a bit out of budget, or to try a special menu at your favorite spot. The menus are all available on the Downtown Sacramento Partnership (DSP) website, so take a look and treat yourself to a nice meal or two!

We here at Sac365 haven’t had a chance to taste any of the menus ourselves (yet!), but luckily the folks over at DSP have done a little initial footwork for you. Their blog features previews of several locations by both DSP staffers and local food bloggers. Reading through these makes me even hungrier! Just check out what Annie Stuckert of DSP has to say about Spataro’s salad: “The salad was full of citrus aromas and reminded me of something that I would love on a warm summer evening. Cool, crisp, and delicious. On numerous attempts, I tried to get the perfect bite with all the ingredients in one, the tart tangerine, with the sweetness of the dates and the crunch of the almonds. Perfection.”

Yum! Now stop reading and get to eating!
