This has been going on twice a year for several years.... it is this 2 week push to promote downtown restaurants - Devour Downtown. You can go here to check out the participating restaurants for the Summer of 2010.
This is a good chance to get a fairly big, usually 3-course meal from some of the nicer local and premium chains downtown. For a view of the city, the Skyline Club just cannot be beat. And, it is typically only open to the general public for Devour Downtown. When we went to Palomino during one of the Winter Devour Downtown's, I was amazed at the portion sizes, they didn't seem reduced at all. I will say, though, that the time we tried Dunaways, the appetizers seemed especially small. If you don't want to spend $46.50 per person to try Fogo de Chao, it looks like you can get try their roasted meat extravaganza for just $30 during Devour Downtown. One of my all-time favorites downtown is Santorini's Greek Kitchen in Fountain Square - the best fried eggplant by a kilometer!
It's been a really long time since I've been to Iaria's, an Indianapolis icon. And, two eating for $30, featuring samplers of their entrees? That's basically Olive Garden prices....
Get out and support our downtown restaurants!
