We Don’t Need No Stinking Restaurant Week!

January 19 - February 5

| $35

The Anti Restaurant Week at Dino’s Grotto!

3 courses at $35.14 simply IS NOT a great deal at Dino’s Grotto. It comes out to a half-priced dessert, which IS NOT a savings in our minds. So we are not part of Restaurant Week {the membership to the association is $500 and the fee for being taking part is another $500 or so}. But we want to give you another great reason to come to Dino’s Grotto.

January 19 @ 5:00 pmFebruary 5 @ 10:00 pm

Who needs a shortened menu of stuff that is not on the regular menu just to save, on average, half the price of dessert .  And many restaurants don’t even serve the same quality ingredients they do every other day of the week.  Not at Dino’s Grotto.  Here is our deal: a 5 course tasting menu for $35.  We start you off with some of our heirloom tomato essence in a soup version.  Then a choice of antipasto, a half pasta, a tasting menu sized second {actually the size of a typical entree in Italy} and a choice of dessert.  The choices will include vegetarian, seafood & gluten free options.  There will be a vegan option as well on request.

Since you don’t live by food alone, our wine list will be at Wine Madness pricing {33% off wines $50+} and $15 Wine Flights as well.  Plus Ric will whip up a ҒЯω Cocktail or two for $8.
