Press Release From Dine Originals, Columbus: More than 40 Central Ohio restaurants have prepared a package to stimulate taste buds without creating a deficit.
Presented by Dine Originals Columbus, the city’s inaugural Restaurant Week offers diners the opportunity to enjoy dining out at more than 40 participating local eateries at a special price. From March 9 – 15, each restaurant is creating fixed-price menus ($15 at some restaurants, or $30 at others) allowing diners to enjoy wonderful food at a very reasonable rate.
“Whether you want to try a new restaurant or treat yourself to a favorite, Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for residents and visitors alike to sample the culinary skills of Columbus chefs,” said Diane Warren, president of Dine Original Columbus.”
“Independent restaurants define the culinary diversity and culture of a city and this is a wonderful way to showcase the varied and unique restaurants in Columbus,” added Warren who is also the owner of the popular Katzinger’s Delicatessen.
Taking advantage of Restaurant Week is easy. Diners simply go to or make a reservation at a participating restaurant (it is strongly recommended that guests make a reservation at those restaurants that accept them). Participating restaurants and their Restaurant Week menus are available at DineOriginalsColumbus.com along with contact information for each restaurant.
“It is wonderful Dine Originals can bring this to Columbus,” said Warren. “Major cities throughout the country have some version of a restaurant week, some even twice a year. These events are popular because they are a win-win for every one. With such inviting prices diners have the opportunity to dine someplace new or return to a favorite normally reserved for special occasions, and restaurants have the opportunity to increase their business and introduce themselves to new guests.”
Dine Originals Columbus has 42 member restaurants, including The Worthington Inn, The Refectory, Barcelona, Due Amici, Katzinger’s Delicatessen, The Clarmont, Rigsby’s, Columbus Brewing Company and many others.
Dine Originals Columbus started in the spring of 2003 to promote and support independent restaurants and provide their customers with a unique and positive dining experience. For more information about Dine Originals Columbus please visit, www.DineOriginalsColumbus.com.
