Downtown Sacramento Partnership Announces Dates of 2016 Dine Downtown Event
Downtown Sacramento Partnership Announces Dates of 2016 Dine Downtown Event

Downtown Sacramento’s vibrant food scene is on a roll. Shortly after being named as the “Next Great American Food City” by Southwest: the Magazine, the Downtown Sacramento Partnership is proud to announce the dates of the annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week happening from January 7 through January 16, 2016. In fact, there’s no better time to be a “foodie” than during Dine Downtown when indulgent, three-course dining experiences are priced at just $35.

Launched in 2005, Dine Downtown boasts decadent dining experiences at Sacramento’s finest restaurants, including special menus assembled by amazingly talented and creative local chefs. Plus, food enthusiasts can feel good about their culinary experiences since $1 from every Dine Downtown meal will be donated to the Food Literacy Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring change in community food education. In 2015, $14,000 in funds were generated for the Food Literacy Center from this program which allowed them to proactively reach even more children with important messaging about food literacy. And, they are pleased to have ongoing food literacy programs in place in eight local schools by the New Year. Funds generated by the 2016 Dine Downtown effort will go toward moving food literacy education into the daytime curriculum -- not just as an after-school program -- which underscores food literacy education is as critical as reading, writing and arithmetic.

Participating restaurants to date include: 58 Degrees & Holding Co, Biba, Blackbird Kitchen + Beer Gallery, Blue Prynt, Brasserie Capitale, Cafe Plan B, Cafeteria 15L, Chops Steakhouse, Dawson’s Steakhouse (Hyatt Regency), Downtown & Vine, Ella Dining Room & Bar, Empress Tavern, Esquire Grill, Fat City Bar & Café, The Firehouse Restaurant, Foundation Restaurant & Bar, Frank Fat’s, Grange Restaurant & Bar, Hock Farm & Craft Provisions, Hook & Ladder Manufacturing Co., Il Fornaio, Localis, Mayahuel, The Melting Pot, Paragary’s, The Pilothouse, The Porch Restaurant & Bar, Red Rabbit Kitchen & Bar, Rio City Café, and Ten22.

Dine Downtown is produced by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. Event partners include the Food Literacy Center, Yelp and Sacramento365.
