It's that time of year again. When our taste buds rejoice and our wallets breathe a sigh of relief during Devour Downtown in Indianapolis. From January 20 thru February 2, over seventy Indianapolis restaurants will be offering three-course prix fixe menus at a fraction of their usual cost.
Restaurants feature some veterans of the Indianapolis dining scene and also some newcomers. The Slippery Noodle, Indiana's oldest bar is offering dinner for two for only $35 including filet medallions, loaded baked potato, soup or salad and even turtle cheesecake for dessert.
Cerulean, a relative newbie to the Indy restaurant world, is treating guests to three courses for $30 per person. The menu includes a bread salad with winter squash, arugula and a roasted garlic vinaigrette, a choice of meatballs with polenta and hunter's gravy or local winter vegetables with polenta and mushroom gravy and a choice of yogurt mousse or chocolate green tea pastry for dessert. Cerulean also offers a wine pairing option for $45 per person.
This is just a peek at what Devour Downtown has to offer. No matter which restaurant you choose, the meals are outstanding and the prices are the best you will see all year. It's your chance to get out and try a new restaurant or visit one you have been hoping your friends would treat you to for your birthday.
