35 Restaurants Participating in Sacramento’s Restaurant Week
We are so excited for the return of the 12th Annual Dine Downtown January 12–22, a 10-day dining extravaganza produced by Downtown Sacramento Partnership. Local foodies and families have the opportunity to explore pre-fixe, three-course specialty menus from participating restaurants for only $35.
In even better news, Dine Downtown directly impacts the community, as one dollar from every meal is donated to social services and community food literacy programs. Just $4.11 provides a week’s worth of food literacy education for one child, so participating in Dine Downtown can really make a difference in a child’s life.
It also provides a significant boost for local restaurants during an otherwise slow period for the industry. In fact, the program has generated an estimated $4.5 million in restaurant sales since its inception in 2005.
Get to know the diverse personalities of the participating local restaurants, each debuting their own creative menus during Dine Downtown 2017! Use our interactive map to find the restaurant nearest you.
