Dine Originals Restaurant Week Returns for Its Ninth Year
Dine Originals Restaurant Week, the seven-day event meant to highlight the local restaurant scene, is back this month. Each of the 36 Dine Originals member restaurants will serve prix-fixe menus only available for the event, running from March 20 through March 26.
Most of these menus will offer three courses, complete with appetizer, entree and dessert. Cost per menu varies. On their website, Dine Originals lays out each restaurant’s offerings based on price range, $15-25 and $30-40.
For example, at the cheaper end, Katzinger’s will offer a $15 three-course meal, offering a choice between soup and potato salad to start, then a selection of sandwiches, and chocolate chip cookies to finish. For Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus’ $30 offering, the first course can be calamari, potstickers, chicken tortilla soup, or spinach salad. Their second course is one of four as well, including beef medallions, crab manicotti, bourbon and coke pork tenderloin, and grilled vegetarian lasagna. For dessert, there’s a choice between chocolate chip blondie and root beer float. Meanwhile, $40 at the Refectory will get you one of eight starters, one of five entrees and one of three desserts. They’ll have some additional items that cost a little extra as well.
“We consider a Dine Originals sticker in the window of a restaurant to be a seal of approval,” said Shelley Mann, executive director of Dine Originals Columbus, in a press release. “Go into any of our member restaurants, and we guarantee you will have a dining experience that reflects what makes dining at independent restaurants so rewarding—delicious, made-from-scratch food, owners who you will actually interact with when you visit the restaurant, and that one-of-a-kind atmosphere you can only find in the best local restaurants.”
Dine Originals Restaurant Week is in its ninth year. Through an application process, Dine Originals guarantees that each of its member restaurants have an independent owner-operator business model and scratch-made food.
