Delaware Dines Out, Sept 24-30, 2012

Do you like to eat out?  Next week is your best opportunity to try out any restaurant that you might have been hesitating to try because of the price.

September 24-30 is Delaware Dines Out Week where a huge list of restaurants throughout the whole state of Delaware will be offering set price menus for lunch and dinner to try their food.  Restaurants participating in Lunch will offer a meal at $15, but not all are.  All restaurants are offering a 3 course dinner for $30 a person.

Check out the Delaware Dines Out website to see who is participating and what their dinner menu looks like.

I’m excited to talk my husband into taking me to the Melting Pot for a Cheese, Salad, and Entree course; add on the chocolate for $8 and get 10% off a bottle of wine. Or, I have not yet visited the Stone Balloon since it changed from nasty bar (which I only visited once in college) to upscale wine house because of the prices.  For $30 I can get Caprese Risotto tomato confit, fresh mozzarella, garlic foccacia crumbs, basil salad, EVOO Powder
-or-
Mixed Greens Salad pickled onions, toasted pine nuts, bleu cheese, shaved rainbow carrots, charred lemon-white balsamic vinaigrette
-or-
Smokey Cauliflower Bisque pistachio Gremolata, herb oil for my first course.

For my Second Course I can choose Country Fried Quail grilled watermelon, haricot verts, smoked onion crema, fresno pepper syrup, toasted quinoa pilaf
-or-
Shrimp a la Plancha braised greens, cheddar-scallion grits, mustard seeds, tabasco-tomato coulis, fried arugula
-or-
Zucchini Cakes roasted plantains, crispy brussel sprouts, pickled vegetable salad, romesco sauce.

And for the Third Course (Dessert, which fantastic because I have a really big sweet tooth) Angel Food strawberry custard, orange blossom syrup, buttermilk sorbet, kiwi chutney
-or-
Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie rosemary shortbread crumble, frangelico ganache, white chocolate gelato, chantilly.

Yes, Please!

I hope you can go out and try some new restaurants or order something a little different at your favorite restaurant!

Happy Eating!
