So this year Dine About Town seemed to be scaling back as the traditionally month-long celebration was only two weeks this past January. But don’t worry, they weren’t scaling back, they were just spreading out. Dine About Town returns with part two beginning June 1 and running through June 15. You know the deal—a 3-course prix-fixe lunch for $21.95 or dinner for $31.95 at one of San Francisco’s most talked about and usually most expensive restaurants. We suspect this segment of the new two-part plan will see robust participation with June marking the start of SF tourist and festival season so we highly recommend making reservations now if you haven’t already. Open Table has a special section of their site entirely devoted to Dine About Town reservations.
And if you can’t get the table you want when you want, check out the Dine About Town launch party, Wednesday June 4 at the Union Square Macy’s. A $10 donation to Meals on Wheels gets you free samples from some of the featured Dine About Town restaurants, a cooking demo and a wine tasting (complete with souvenir wine glass).
Having browsed the list of participating restaurants we’re happy to see some new names this June and we’re having a hard time figuring out where to place our final bets for the fast approaching fine dining extravaganza. The good news: we don’t have to choose just one. The bad news: we don’t have to choose just one.
