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.
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!
