$25 Prix-Fixe Menus Offer Nearly Endless Dining Options in Portland ALL June
PORTLAND, OR (May 27, 2010) - Why is June the best time to dine out? Not just because the bounty of spring has arrived, but because it’s Dining Month Portland. That means this June, chefs are filling their bags at the farmer’s markets, ready to serve hungry diners course after course at an unbeatable price of $25.
For an entire month, starting June 1, 2010, forty-six restaurants will offer three-course dinner menus – including an appetizer, entrée and dessert – for just $25. Plus, SmartPark Garage is providing coupons for $1 off of parking, available online at www.diningmonthportland.com and through printed promotions in local publications. Presented by the Downtown Marketing Initiative, in conjunction with Travel Portland, this citywide dining promotion is patterned after restaurant weeks in other cities like New York, Seattle and Los Angeles.
As an added bonus, diners can enter to win more than $1,000 in restaurant gift certificates, while benefiting a local charity. Thanks to a sponsorship from American Express, the Downtown Marketing Initiative will donate $5 to New Avenues for Youth for every contest entry received, up to $5,000. Restaurant-goers can enter the competition after their meal at any participating Dining Month Portland restaurant.
“Whether trying out a new restaurant or visiting a favorite stand-by, we want to offer people a reason to get out and experience our city’s amazing restaurants,” said Courtney Ries, Interim Director of the Downtown Marketing Initiative. “Dining Month Portland is about offering serious value to diners, all while raising money for a wonderful cause.”
