Salem Dining Month

October 1, 2018

It may come at no surprise that a city in the heart of the Willamette Valley is a culinary hot spot. Surrounded by farmland and vineyards, Salem has easy access to all the locally sourced ingredients for a world-class feast. The bustling city also attracts culinary creatives — chefs who think outside the cookbook, baristas who moonlight as bartenders, winemakers who bottle up dreams and gastronomes who host dinner events for the fun of it.

The best time to try Salem’s culinary scene just might be October, Salem Dining Month, when nearly two dozen restaurants offer the ultimate dinner deal: $30 for two courses and a beverage. Take a peek at the 2019 participating restaurants below and start planning, because you only have 31 days to take advantage of this deal.
