Dine Originals Restaurant Week II: Wrap Up
Posted by cmh gourmand on September 14, 2009
Another Dine Originals Restaurant Week has come and gone as of Sunday. Conversations and observations at Alana’s, Deepwood, Cafe Corner, G. Michaels and Pistacia Vera indicate is a was very busy week. I ran into Diane Warren from Katzingers on Sunday who said the same. That being the case, we can hope for two more restaurant weeks in 2010.
I wrapped up my week with Cafe Corner and Pistacia Vera.
Cafe Corner was my value pick of the week. For $20.09 I was able to order two sandwiches, choice of chips or apple with each, two desserts and two drinks. Looking at regular pricing that saved me at least $4 if not more. One of the sandwiches I ordered was the Tapeno which was featured in the Bon Appetit April 2009 issue.
My other sandwich choice, which I experienced to be even better was Fig and Prosciutto (dried calimayna figs, prosciutto, provolone, balsamic vinegar and white truffle oil on good crusty bread served panini style). It is a very filling lunch for two or a couple meals for one.
I have started a Restaurant Week tradition (I have done it two out of two times so it counts now) by getting the Pistacia Vera tasting menu late Sunday afternoon. The selections never disappoint. It is a great way to end Restaurant Week – more dessert!
I am looking forward to the new Dine Originals Columbus Restaurant Week tradition and hope this remains a twice yearly event.
