Restaurants, diners dig in for Dine Downtown Sacramento

SACRAMENTO -  For the next 10 days, Sacramentans have the chance to take advantage of reasonable pricing at some of the area's fine dining establishments.

This year, 29 restaurants are participating in Dine Downtown, an event aimed at allowing consumers to experience three-course meals at a reduced cost of $30.  The restaurants involved are also known for using products in their kitchen mostly from local farmers.

Employees at the Grange restaurant inside the Citizen Hotel at 9th and J St. are preparing for a surge in business.

Not far away, Dawson's restaurant at the Hyatt Regency is putting the final touches on a special menu that includes pacific coast oysters, beef short rib, free-range chicken breast, and charred pacific salmon.

Dine Downtown begins Wednesday and goes through next Friday.
