Dining Deals with Dine About Town


Now in its 11th year, ~DINE ABOUT TOWN~ starts Sunday January 15th and continues through the 31st with dining deals at over 100 San Francisco restaurants. You can get a two-course prix-fixe lunch for $17.95, and/or a three-course prix-fixe dinner for $34.95.

Maybe you wanna try some newcomers, like Bottle Cap, Claudine, or Jasper’s Corner Tap & Kitchen—or see what the new chef at Bushi-tei is doing? Or maybe you need a good excuse to return to an oldie but goodie, like Foreign Cinema, Town Hall, or Destino? Just check out the list of participating restaurants here. The deals are all over town, and downtown worker bees especially will find lots of choices for a weekday lunch or dinner close to the office.

Here’s a sample Dine About Town lunch menu from One Market. First course: choice of little gem salad with radish, fennel, cara cara orange, or butternut squash soup with ras al hanout, spiced pumpkin seeds, yogurt cloud; second course: choice of pan-seared cod with chickpeas, Savoy spinach, saffron, or housemade merguez sausage with green lentils, or sunchoke tortellini with black trumpet mushrooms, Parmesan emulsion. For dinner, a spit-roasted Rocky Jr. half chicken with “boulangère” potatoes, applewood-smoked bacon, and thyme jus is a second-course choice, and desserts include duo of mango and pineapple sorbet, fresh fruit, and almond tuile, or pear brown butter tart.

The fine print: dates and times of participation vary by restaurant, prices are per person and do not include beverage, tax, or gratuity. And don’t forget the resos!
