Dine Downtown


Launched in 2005, Dine Downtown was created as an effort to elevate downtown’s dynamic dining scene and drive traffic to local restaurants. Now, 10 years later, Dine Downtown continues to draw people to experience decadent menus assembled by Sacramento’s top chefs.

Dine Downtown 2015 ran from January 15 through January 24 and included 28 of downtown’s finest restaurants and each location offered special 3-course dining experiences for $31. One dollar from every Dine Downtown meal was donated to Food Literacy Center, a nonprofit dedicated to inspiring change in community food education. During a typically slow season for restaurants, Dine Downtown provides a significant boost in restaurant sales.

Event Highlights:

  • Participating restaurants served more than 14,000 meals during the 10-day event in 2015
  • Dine Downtown garnered a whopping $3.5 million in restaurant sales from 2009 – 2014
