Downtown Dining Week

November 21, 2017



Last week was Downtown Dining Week for restaurants in the downtown Memphis area. There were over 20 restaurants participating this year with lunch and full course meals for a discounted rate. This is one event I try to never miss out on! The concept is pretty neat. For $20.17 (I think the price increase by a penny to match the current year) you can get a three course dinner on a special selected menu. During lunch, it’s $10.17 for a two-for-one special with a special lunch menu.


The first restaurant I visited was Aldo’s Pizza Pies. I invited a few friends that live downtown to enjoy the experience with me. I had the house salad, Sun-dried tomato ravioli with roasted red pepper cream sauce, and cheese cake. I had to take the cheese cake home. I must admit, my eyes are always bigger than my stomach!


Day two was a visit to Bleu. I decided to try the Spinach Salad, ginger lime pan seared salmon and sweet potato cheesecake. Bleu also had drink specials, so I decided to try the Tanqueray Gin Ghyme Will Tell. For those that decided to drive, of course I walked because Bleu is only three blocks away, the restaurant offered complimentary valet parking for three hours.


Because I had to go out of town on Thursday, I wasn’t able to participate in Downtown Dining week every day as planned. For next year, I will be careful to not plan my vacation around one of most exciting weeks for downtown restaurants and food.  


I’m sure my trainer was happy I could only participate in only two days instead of the entire week as planned.
