bluehour, one of the many restaurants participating in Portland Dining Month.

If you’re hungry for spring, get ready for dining alfresco, feasting on fresh local fare and sinking our teeth into seasonal bounty. What more could we ask for? How about all of the above prepared by Portland’s most talented chefs and at a bargain of a price?

For the month of March, you can have just that. Enjoy delicious and affordable summer menus with Portland Dining Month — brought to you by the nice folks at Downtown Portland.

Here’s how it works: Go to Downtown Portland’s Facebook page. There you can browse more than 90 local restaurants offering three-course dinner menus — an appetizer, entrée and dessert — for just $29. Spin the “Wheel of Deliciousness” to get a recommendation for your next best meal.

You can also enter to win one of three $50 gift certificates, awarded weekly, or the grand prize — Dinner for a Year, a cache of gift certificates valued at $3,500. And best of all, for every reservation booked online through the Portland Dining Month website, the Downtown Marketing Initiative will make a donation to the Oregon Food Bank.
