Dine Downtown 2009

Dine Downtown is an annual eating event for Sacramento. For one week in January, several Capital City restaurants offer $30 Prix Fixe meals. The idea is to convince people it’s a good idea to spend money on dining out, after the New Year’s and Christmas celebrations.

For many people watching their wallets, $30 is the right price for dining out.

Dine Downtown at Rio City

We went to Rio City in Old Sacramento. It’s by the water and enjoyed the relaxed, sophisticated ambiance. On the Prix Fixe menu, I ordered the prime rib, medium rare. So juicy and tender!

We also did a bottle of 2005 Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel from Amador County. We had a tasty, affordable night out!
