Wrecking Crew

The fun-loving folks of Downtown Sacramento Partnership have cooked up a scheme to ruin everyone's New Year diet. For the third straight year, they will be orchestrating a promotion called Dine Downtown Restaurant Week.

Here's the game plan: Starting Jan. 12 and continuing to Jan. 18, 22 downtown restaurants will offer special three-course prix-fixe dinner menus for $30 per person. The participating restaurants include The Broiler Steakhouse, Fat City Bar & Cafe, Mason's at the Park and Restaurant 55 Degrees. If you've never been to one of the participating restaurants, it's a great opportunity to be exposed to their style.

Sakura Sushi & Teppan Grill, for example, will offer diners a first-course choice of tuna sashimi or shrimp tempura, a second-course choice of nigiri and roll or "splash and meadow," a combo plate of filet mignon and shrimp, and for dessert mochi ice cream. Morgan's at the Sheraton Grand also offers diners a choice, including butternut squash soup or Caesar salad for an appetizer; grilled filet mignon, penne pasta Romano or thyme-basted sea scallops for an entree; and caramel cheesecake or vanilla-bean creme brulee for dessert.

More restaurants and menus are at the organization's Web site.
