Dine Downtown Restaurant Week continues through Sunday, but the turnout so far has some restaurateurs licking their chops. The event is aimed at drawing diners downtown, with 36 restaurants offering three-course meals for $30. Participating restaurants include many of downtown's top dining destinations, including Biba Restaurant, Mulvaney's B&L, and The Firehouse.
"We've seen the levels of business almost double what we usually expect this time of year," said Brent Larkin, director of food and beverage for Grange at The Citizen, in a statement released by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership. "Considering these economic times, people are surprisingly coming out in droves. We hope many of our guests are using this promotion to visit our restaurant for the first time and, in turn, become future patrons."
We'll keep tabs on the final results once "Dine Downtown" wraps over the weekend. Meanwhile, you can find a full list of participating restaurants here.
