Serving Up Summer
Hungry for summer? It’s time 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 June, 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 the nearly 60 local restaurants offering three-course dinner menus — an appetizer, entrée and dessert — for just $25. 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 $2,500. Aviary, Bluehour, 23 Hoyt — where will that wheel stop? Only you can say for sure.
Portland Dining Month is sponsored by OpenTable. For every reservation booked on OpenTable through the Portland Dining Month website, the Downtown Marketing Initiative will make a donation to the Oregon Food Bank.
